New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a busy day Thursday. Before heading out to accept four awards at ESPN’s ESPY awards, include Best Male Athlete, Brees stopped by the Tonight Show to chat with
Conan O’Brien Jay Leno.
Brees is having a great year after winning the Super Bowl and taking home the MVP for that game. He was also picked by fans as the cover athlete for the best-selling Madden Football video game.
Despite the great honor of being on the cover of one of the most popular game franchises ever created, Brees acknowledge the Madden Curse (shown by itself in video 3 below) which has hampered cover athletes over the years.
Thanks to the power of fans voting for the athlete to be on the cover, Brees hopes that any power of the Madden Curse will be negated. The fate of the curse is then in the hands of the fans.
He then bribed everyone in the audience with a copy of the game. He’s a cool buy but it sounds like he’s trying to suck up a bit…
