Baseball Player Wants His Halo

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.

    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.

     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.
