When we cash our paycheques, we usually go out and buy a new game. When Blizzard COO Paul Sams cashes his paycheque, he buys a team to play a game for him. And not just any game, either. Professional frikkin’ football.

Sams, according to a post on the Steelers’ official website, is one of ten new shareholders for the popular NFL team. Apparently, Sams has “coached youth athletics for the past decade,” so he’s not a total fish out of water here, either.

Is this ActiBlizz’s sneak attack on EA’s Madden franchise? Crafty, Sams. Very crafty.
