Tom Brady breaks mirror, walks under ladder to show he’s not worried about the Madden curse
Brady ain’t afraid of no curse.
Which probably has every Patriots fan worried. Because if you know anything about the annual Madden cover, you know that real estate is cursed. Either the cover boy suffers a bad injury (Rob Gronkowski in 2017, Donovon McNabb in 2006), becomes a terrible player (Peyton Hillis in 2012, Vince Young in 2008), or suffers an injury which leads to him becoming a terrible player (Michael Vick in 2004).
So, it’s a bad deal for just about everybody who shows up on the cover.
But Brady isn’t worried. It’s not like he’s going to get popped again with a four-game suspension for Deflategate, and it’s not like the president is going to stop being friends with him. As for curses? Brady doesn’t believe in them.
As he showed in this video posted to his Facebook page.
They wouldn't let me break the full-length mirror... All good!Posted by Tom Brady on Friday, May 12, 2017
If Brady does suffer a bad injury or his quality of play declines, it probably won’t have anything to do with the curse. It’ll be because, at 40 years old by the time next season starts, he’s ancient by NFL standards.
