Or a video game geek in line for the latest version of "Halo."
"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.
Lillibridge, 26, even tweeted a picture of the line he was standing in, but his enthusiasm was not shared by teammate Mark Teahen.
The White Sox host the Twins on Tuesday night and are six games behind in the American League Central. Lillibridge, a backup who's had just one at-bat in the past three games, wanted to make sure Teahen knew he would be well-rested for the game, but he has passions other than baseball.
"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.
On Tuesday afternoon, Lillibridge assured Sox fans and teammates that he's ready to face the Twins.
"I did get to bed quite early so trust me can't wait for the big game tonight... #Halo is awesome!" he tweeted.
