Baseball Player Wants His Halo

September 14, 2010 -

A Chicago White Sox player was so excited about the release of Halo: Reach that he stood in a line at a Chicago store waiting for the midnight release.

Brent Lillibridge, a second baseman for the Sox, tweeted from his place in line that he was channeling his inner nerd, according to a story on ESPN:

"Most important night of the year Halo coming out at 12 tonight and yes I'm in a line to get it... Jokes please," Lillibridge tweeted at approximately 11 p.m. (CT) Monday.

Needless to say, teammate Mark Teahan wasn't amused and responded with his own tweet:

"Brent, get to bed. Take Gavin, Thornton & Putz with you. Halo will survive the night without you," Teahen tweeted, referring to pitchers Gavin Floyd, Matt Thornton and J.J. Putz.

Lillibridge was unfazed:

"I promise I'll be in bed early 2nite Noone wants to win more than I do. As much as I luv playing bball I have a lot of nerd in me," Lillibridge tweeted.

He later tweeted to fans that he got plenty of sleep in time for tonight's game against the Twins.

The definition of Politics must be getting wider.

 You know, I never thought I'd see trolling on GP. 

 

There are plenty of political articles, and the flavor is interesting. Please take your negativity elsewhere.

Re: Baseball Player Wants His Halo

1) This isn't trolling, the republican bullshit employed by a certain unnamed commenter might qualify though.

2) I've been commenting on GP since before you needed to have an account to comment. You however appear to be quite new. Have a nice day.

FYI, "unfazed", not "unphased".

ZippyDSMleeWhat is the reasoning for the criticisms against how fictional characters are portrayed?02/27/2015 - 4:13pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: Reply to what industries. “The I can make money by A milking a niche base and or B saying crazy things industry.“ You’ve never listened to talk radio or heard of Rush Limbaugh have you?02/27/2015 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenWhat the hell are you talking about?02/27/2015 - 4:05pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: The I can make money by A milking a niche base and or B saying crazy things industry. Then what is the reasoning for the criticisms?02/27/2015 - 4:04pm
Andrew EisenAgain, nothing you say makes a lick of sense.02/27/2015 - 3:54pm
Andrew EisenNo one is saying the sexual objectification of female characters is causing people to be mean in real life.02/27/2015 - 3:53pm
Andrew EisenIndustries build around what? No one is confusing fiction and reality. No one is claiming fictional characters have feelings or rights or are they themselves speaking against their own objectification.02/27/2015 - 3:52pm
ZippyDSMleeresponsibility kick in to not treat others poorly and have enough self-worth to not be discouraged by the smallest of things?02/27/2015 - 3:42pm
ZippyDSMleeOne could stretch things pretty far and claim that mindsets shaped by fiction shape the real world treatment of real people but my question is which came first the chicken(mistreatment) or the egg(fiction) and where and when dose individual personal respo02/27/2015 - 3:42pm
ZippyDSMleeFrankly it looks more like people are getting fiction and reality confused, fictional characters have no feelings or rights thus to claim they can be objectified and treated poorly make for a somewhat disingenuous argument.02/27/2015 - 3:42pm
ZippyDSMleeIf there were not industries built around it I could agree but the same format that any political talking head uses or Jack Thompson used also supports less excessive critics…02/27/2015 - 3:41pm
Andrew EisenSo once again, nothing you say makes a lick of sense.02/27/2015 - 3:24pm
Andrew EisenCritics who offer suggestions on how their issues might be addressed are not bullies and no one is attempting to police anything let alone anyone's morals.02/27/2015 - 3:24pm
ZippyDSMleeof bad press will keep others in line.02/27/2015 - 3:20pm
ZippyDSMleeIt’s a rather simple concept to do minimal effort to reach a goal. Once a bully has established themselves they have to do little to attain their goal. Same with the moral police once one establish tactics to damage the profits of an IP the vague threat02/27/2015 - 3:20pm

Matthew Wilson@AE im a pc guy, so I am ok if sega only does pc and mobile. on the other hand, the last pc game I bought from them was the valkyria chronicles port.02/27/2015 - 3:12pm
Andrew EisenThat makes no sense. I mean I literally can't parse what you wrote.02/27/2015 - 3:01pm
ZippyDSMleewide and varied and as such is one of the most haphazardly protected forms of free speech there is.02/27/2015 - 2:55pm
ZippyDSMleeSo using bad press and the treat there of to put minimal pressure upon others is not the same as putting minimal pressure on someone to take their launch money? Underage sex is one of the easiest go to things in fiction. The reasoning to ban it is wide an02/27/2015 - 2:54pm
