The results are in. EA Sports announced yesterday that the curse-breaking vote to pick the next Madden cover star is all counted up and Super Bowel MVP Drew Brees will grace the cover of Madden 2011. For the vote, EA allowed fans to pick between Brees, Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne and Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen. Given the choices, Brees’ doesn’t exactly seem like a surprising choice. Talking to ESPN, Brees said he was happy to get picked, and isn’t worried about the Madden curse. Brees said; “I believe in fate, and if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,” he said. “But destiny is stronger than any curse, and this team is destined for great things.” Vote or no vote, Mr. Brees should be a little more careful about tempting fate, since he claims to believe in it.
Along with the cover announcement, EA Sports released a debut trailer for all you fans dying to see the game. EA also announced that they will be releasing a demo in “late July” featuring the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts. Hope those two things can tide you over until the big M arrives in stores on August 10th.
