Madden 10 cover athlete injured, curse continues

The curse of the Madden NFL cover star strikes again...

Troy Palomalu -- pwned.

Troy Palomalu -- pwned.

As most of you know, and can see, this year's Madden NFL 10 cover is graced by two athletes for the first time: Troy Palomalu from the Pittsburg Steelers and Larry Fitzgerald from the Arizona Cardinals.

Does this mean double the curse for these co-cover athletes? Well, for sure we know that it has hit one of them.

Yesterday, at the Pittsburg Steelers' season opener, Troy Palomalu sustained an injury which forced him to leave the game just before the half. Now, if this were something minor, I wouldn't be here writing about it, but it wasn't. Palomalu has sustained a sprained MCL which usually has a player benchwarming for 3 - 6 weeks, a large chunk of the 17 week regular season. The Madden curse seems to be in full effect, and sharing the cover athlete role has not softened its effects. If anything, it has been angered and decided to take out someone in the first game of the season.

It's time for all of us to be on "Fitzgerald watch," waiting to see if the curse will strike the other cover athlete. For now, Troy Polamalu joins Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb, and Shaun Alexander in the list of players who have been injured by the curse.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
