Madden: GOAT Edition

May 12, 2017

The good news: Tom Brady is on the cover of the hottest football video game, "Madden '18."

The bad news: Players featured on the cover of past "Madden" games have suffered catastrophic injuries, and/or horrible seasons.

For those that may remember, Gronk was featured on the cover of "Madden 2k17." The next thing we know, Gronk booked a ticket to Achy-Breaky-Ville and found himself absent from nearly the entire season, leaving the rest of us going through withdrawals from a lack of Gronk spikes.

But does Tom Brady run away from Madden's curse? Does he hire a shaman, or a priest, or Obi Wan Kenobi for protection against the supernatural? Nah.

Instead he just rubs his defiance in its stupid face by calling it out by breaking mirrors and walking under ladders.

I won't lie to you, when Brady smashed that mirror and walked under that ladder, I might have let out a single drop of pee.

But goshdarn it, if the GOAT has no fear of the supernatural, than neither do I! (shuffles chickenbone necklace under desk).
