EA Fails; Madden 08 Can’t Predict Super Bowl Outcome
Like millions of Americans, yesterday was all about sitting down and watching the Super Bowl with a bag of chips and a jar of dip close at hand. Unlike millions of Americans (I’m guessing), aside from the game, the commercials, and a curiously preserved Tom Petty, I was mostly interested to see if the past week’s simulations run by both Madden 08 and Tecmo Super Bowl would hold true with the Patriots as the winners. To summarize: no, they didn’t. The Giants managed to overtake the Patriots with a touchdown literally at the last minute. Thus, the Patriots’ championship trophy disappeared along with my dreams of finding a fortune teller for placing bets on future sporting events. *Sigh* Guess I’ll have to go back to my old plan of building a time machine out of a Delorean and picking up a sports book from the future to give to my younger self in the past.
