Being known as “the sports guy” you might be surprised to know, unless you know me at all, that I find the magical dance of cover athlete announcements to be one of the most ridiculous stories every year.
I honestly, and from the bottom of my heart, could not care less who EA Sports or 2K Sports puts on the cover of its games. I don’t get the desire to know, why you would care, or what in the hell the big deal is because it doesn’t affect the game at all and WHAT!? Peyton Hillis from MY team made the cover of Madden 12 in a nationwide FAN VOTE!?
WOO!!!!! The Browns finally won something! Happy days!!
*I grabbed that pic from Joystiq which is not the final cover art.
