* Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling plays war games and {{MMORPG}}s. Originally, Schilling planned to start an MMORPG company after his retirement from baseball; he wound up starting Green Monster Games (now 38 Studios, who developed ''Kingdoms of Amalur'') before he retired. Once, when Schilling used to pitch for Arizona, he was rocked for two homers in the same game by former teammate Doug Glanville. After the game Doug dedicated that beating to the memory of Bing-bong, his ''{{Everquest}}'' character that Schilling had left to die. Schilling has such a good relationship with ''Sony Online Entertainment'' that he asked them to add his likeness into ''EverQuestII'' for a charity event. The developers agreed, and put his voice, face, and likeness into the game, complete with his jersey's number painted on his red armor. This very character would later become a permanent part of the game under the name of "[[SignificantAnagram Clint Gilcrush]]". He also founded the company Multi-Man Publishing '''specifically''' to keep his wargame of choice, ''Advanced Squad Leader'', in print following Hasbro's purchase of Avalon Hill. The man is '''''dedicated'''''.

[[AC: Rugby Players]]
* Before rugby union went professional in 1995, degreed professionals (doctors, lawyers, accountants, and the like) were disproportionately represented in the international game. Even in the modern era, there are a decent number of top-notch players who have high-end professional qualifications:
** Conrad Smith (New Zealand) is a lawyer.
** Diego Ormaechea (Uruguay), whose career spanned the transition to professionalism and is also the oldest player to appear in the Rugby World Cup, is a veterinarian.
** Felipe Contepomi (Argentina), Jannie du Plessis (South Africa), and Jamie Roberts (Wales) are all doctors.



* A growing number of the Arsenal squad, most notably Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott, Samir Nasri and Jack Wilshere, are very keen gamers, especially of the FIFA series. Walcott even joked about what button Fabregas had pressed to pass to him to set him up to score against Chelsea during a live interview on Sky Sports.
** Wojciech Szczesny, the starting Goalkeeper for Arsenal and the Polish National Team, could be compared to Wil Wheaton inhis nerdiness, except he plays [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball professional football]] instead of being an actor. He really likes to be silly with his Facebook and Twitter (and now instagram), and he is a very big fan of the ''Harry Potter'' series. There are also unconfirmed rumors of whether or not he's also a Star Wars fan.
