Chargers fans want LT to elude ‘Madden’ cover

By now, you should know all about the “Madden” curse. If you don’t, here’s a decent explanation.

Fans of San Diego Charger tailback and MVP LaDainian Tomlinson (L.T.), want Electronic Arts to kindly NOT put their star on the cover of “Madden ’08.” Last year, Shaun Alexander was on the cover — and then ended up getting hurt and missing a chunk of the regular season.

Their efforts have culminated in an online petition Web site called SaveLTFromMadden.comin an effort to perhaps sway EA from potentially sacrificing Tomlinson to the injury gods. At the time of this posting, the petition had 821 signatures and counting.

The actual cover athlete is going to be revealed tomorrow on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
