Curse: Reversed

RIP Madden Curse, 1998-2007. You’ve left a slew of former greats in your wake: Marshall Faulk, Eddie George, Daunte Culpepper, Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb and Shaun Alexander. Well, no more- because much like Matt Leinart and the ’05 Trojans, you’re about to get shredded by Longhorn hottie Vince Young. He’s defeated much stronger opposition than you, including (but not limited to): Michigan, Oklahoma, USC, Ohio State, the NFL Draft, the Texans, the Colts, Merrill Hoge, communism, and evil everywhere… not to mention the SI Cover Jinx (six times). Farewell, Madden Curse! It’s been real, and it’s been fun- but it hasn’t been real fun.

About Texas Gal

Pitched four years for the Philadelphia Athletics, and then played shortstop for seven years for the Montreal Expos. Taught Rickey Henderson to steal a base. Taught Nolan Ryan to throw a punch. Taught Mickey Mantle to drink a beer. Threw one seven-hitter and seven no-hitters. Wonderboy was my creation, and first Jobu shrine was in my locker. Often called "the next Dustin Pedroia". Always wear high socks and eyeblack. Prefer to slide headfirst.

  1. I hope he does too, he is too fun to watch to lose to the curse. Because we all know Vince Young just wins football games.

  2. This is a smart move… Get a rising star, rather than an established presence, with several good years & much wear-&-tear already on his resume. It’s less likely he’ll break down in his video-game cover year, then.

  3. TSW: and next year, Belichick will be on the cover of NFL Head Coach, descending the Patriots into consecutive 6-10 seasons. Pray to the good Lord that VY doesn’t tear an ACL against the Jaguars or something.

  4. Vince Young is so huge!! I adore that huge Longhorn of Hotness. I would not mind seeing if little Tommy Zbikowski trying to take Vince down. I don’t think he could do it, but I love to see it. They both could try and take me down off the field.
