In the interview, Afrasiabi comments about one of the highlights in his career as a Blizzard employee: When his sister was giving birth to his first niece, Afrasiabi went to the hospital wearing his World of Warcraft bowling shirt with his name on it, and one nurse recognizes the shirt as a WoW shirt, and she started raving about how much she loved the game.
Afrasiabi has a lot of references pointing to him in WoW, both on his name, his forum alias, and some other references:
