The Madden Curse Is Halfway Complete...


Larry Fitzgerald wasn't sweating the curse. He said on the subject before that he doesn't believe in curses, and he makes his own luck. He's not the first guy who said that of the Madden Curse though, and year after year, all have fallen.

On Opening Night- NFL Kickoff, Troy Polamalu (who shares half of the cover for Madden NFL 10, injured his knee and didn't return to the field. Now the speculation is that he could miss anywhere from 3-6 weeks of football with a sprained ligament in his knee.

For those unaware of what exactly the Madden curse is - people believe that players on the cover of Madden get injured the season they're featured. Mike Vick broke his leg, McNabb had a total of 36 injuries (many internal), Ray Lewis fractured his wrist, and Brett Favre tore tendons in his throwing arm. Now the speculation with half of the curse coming true for Polamalu, is that it's just a matter of time before Fitzgerald suffers an injury. But the curse isn't just half complete, it just states that the individual on the cover will get injured, and one of them did, so the curse lives on even if Fitzgerald doesn't get hurt.

But if he does get injured... everyone's eyes will open wider, and more players will probably learn that your luck may be made by yourself, but it gets influenced greatly by other details. So Larry, here's hoping you don't fall victim to the curse as well... good luck!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
