Brett Favre appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman, chatted with him about “retirement” and announced that he was the Madden 09 Cover Athlete. See photos and video below.
With Brett Favre’s appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman last night, came the announcement that he was tapped to grace the cover of the 20th edition of Madden 09. The dubious honor usually goes to a player who is at the peak of their game, but the folks over at EA Sports felt it was apropos. As long as Favre doesn’t come out of retirement (which he hemmed and hawed about with Dave), I think he’ll be safe from the Madden Curse.
Although there have been many complaints about Favre being the new Madden 09 Cover Athlete, I think he is highly deserving of the honor. I mean c’mon, we all know how much John Madden loves the guy, don’t we?
