We still don’t believe that there’s a Madden curse. But it could be that the makers of the game are hoping to avoid a Madden plague.
Via Kotaku.com, Michael Young, the creative director of the Madden game, has disclosed via Twitter that the new version of the popular (in large part because it’s the only) NFL-licensed console video game will include Tebowing.
It’s unknown whether it’s a celebration that will be reserved for Jets backup quarterback/personal punt protector Tim Tebow, or whether there will be a “Tebowing” button that would allow any player to take a knee in prayer after something good happens.
Given that Tebow’s technicolor dream team of lawyers has threatened to sue the makers of a T-shirt that makes no reference to Tebow whatsoever, here’s hoping that the folks at EA have received the appropriate blessings to borrow his trademark move.
