Shaun Alexander on the Madden curse

It’s gotten all meta.

Wherever he goes, Alexander can’t escape the questions. Even his pastor’s wife called the other day to give her own, um, blessing on the subject. “You get to break this curse that everybody is talking about,” she said. “Everybody behind you will have to thank you for it.”

It was precisely because of the curse that I fought to get Kim Jong Il on the cover, but I was voted down.

EA picked the perfect guy to keep the curse going. RBs tend to fall apart the year after 370 carry seasons. Of course, RBs tend to fall apart in any case.

Shaun Alexander has broken his foot.
