New 'Madden' Jets Favre cover available
Go to THIS EA SPORTS LINK to download your new Brett Favre as a Jet "Madden NFL 09" cover.
Personally, last night I was making fun of the downloadable cover idea, thinking about how much effort you would have to go to to print out the cover on nice paper and cut it nicely and make it look professional... then I remembered the GF has most of those tools at her workplace, so she's printing it out as we speak.
Speaking of last night, I picked up my copy for the Xbox 360 at Fishkill's Wal-Mart last night, and at 12:16 a.m. I found myself at the end of a line of 16 people — meaning that you can estimate that there were anywhere from 30-40 people who bought the game before me right after midnight.
And Wal-Mart was ready for it, setting up the line in the very back of the store at the customer service area. It was a great deal more organized than a few months ago, when I had to pester three different clerks to get me a copy of "Mario Kart Wii" minutes after midnight. With a group of nine all standing there wondering where "Kart" was, the store was clueless as to what was happening at midnight. Of course, it all worked out, and I'm pretty sure I bought the first copy of "Kart" in Dutchess County... but I digress.
The point is, download your new cover, download your rosters, and I'll see YOU on the online gridiron.
(p.s. — in the brief time I played the game last night before watching Spain play China in men's basketball at 4:45 a.m., my current record is 4-1. Not too shabby)
