While the next generation of UMass athletes are trying to make an impression on NFL teams, Victor Cruz is trying to make the cover of Madden.
As all gamers know, Madden is the most popular sports franchise of all time.
Unfortunately, gamers and sports enthusiasts alike also know of the eerie coincidence that has made Madden Cover Status not as appealing: The Madden Curse.
Next year’s cover athlete will be chosen by fans in the Madden ’13 Cover Vote Tournament. Give Cruz a vote if you don’t believe in curses and that kind of stuff.
As a UMass alumni, Giants fan and incredibly superstitious person, I have reservations about Cruz making the cover. However, I would be lying if I told you I didn’t think this would be the coolest thing to happen to a UMass athlete since Victor Cruz won the Super Bowl.
