Keep LT Safe

Many of you have probably seen this already, but THN would be remiss if this was not mentioned; there is a petition to keep LaDainian Tomlinson off of the Madden cover. Please take the time to signing seeing that keeping LT away from the Madden franchise is a worthy endeavor.

Long-time readers of THN also would probably like to keep LT away from the Chunky Soup commercials, too. The less famous of the sports endorsement curses, but just as harmful to a playing career. In fact, some might even argue that it is more harmful than the actual Madden curse.

Edited to add: Vince Young will be the new Madden cover boy. The curse already hit his wonderlic score. Do you think we will ever see a day where contracts will forbid players for appearing on the cover of Madden or do a pitch for Chunky Soup? There should be.

Additional edit: Sorry, folks, it is worse than we thought. LT is going to be a part of the Chunky Soup Mama's Boys. So sorry.

I posted this story half a day ago. Stick to your jokes about massacres and the Angels, THN. No need to steal our material to do that.

Any truth to the rumor that the Virginia Tech campus was a finalist for the Madden cover?

Personally, I can't wait to read all the great "LT's Dad" jokes in THN this season.

Today's Tony Dungy comment would be funnier if it didn't echo what Fred Phelps and his clan are ranting about back in VA . . .

Pastor Phelps has good ideas. He just needs some marketing help.
