Richard Sherman is on fire! He was picked for the cover of Madden 15 for EA Sports beating out Cam Newton. Did you happen to catch the ESPN piece to reveal the winner? I must say, I really liked the t-sheirt Sherman was wearing. Anyways, will the supposed Madden curse strike again this season? Or will it broken and shattered? Sherman doesn’t believe in curses, he believes in God, but I am taking no precautions on this matter (yeah, I’m superstitious). I’ve done my due diligence and don’t fret 12th Man, I’ve got the curse locked down.
After spending countless minutes conducting internet research on how to break a curse, I came up with the following from the About.com:
In the magic world, they use a poppet (a/k/a doll) as a tool to defend against a curse, jinx, hex, spell, or just some plain old voodoo. The poppet must be created in the likeness of whom the victim of the curse is (i.e. Richard Sherman).
I got the perfect poppet, a Richard Sherman bobble head, Super Bowl XLVII edition. According to the internet (it must be true), all I have to do is say a spell, telling the poppet what to do, “You’re the best corner in the game, don’t ever let the Madden curse beat you. You shall receive the negative energy sent by Madden instead of Richard Sherman, L.O.B!.”
The only way to really prove that the Madden curse was broken is by Sherman playing the whole year with no serious injuries, his name is in the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year, and the Seahawks win the Super Bowl. I’ve placed the Sherman bobble head where the curse can’t get to it, locked down tight in a safe, and will remain there until Super Bowl 49 is over.
