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.
