This Has To Be The Nerdiest Thing I've Ever Seen In My Life

Monday, July 16, 2007

I thought those cheap little Fantasy Football trophies were the cheesiest thing ever, but no....they've been topped. Via Majorly English and SbB comes this insane tidbit.

EA Sports and Madden 2008 are offering "Championship Rings"....

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., - July 16, 2007 – Electronic Arts Inc and Jostens. Inc. today announced that the highly anticipated Madden NFL 08 for next generation consoles will give players the opportunity to extend the Madden NFL 08 experience to the real world by giving them the ability to purchase their own custom-designed “Ring of a Champion”. Based on the player’s Madden Gamer Level, the Ring of a Champion showcases the progress of a Madden NFL 08 gamer, and each ring can be customized to recognize the player advancements through the game. These rings are a direct representation of a player’s achievements and game skills. Madden NFL 08 will be available for purchase beginning August 14.
Oh my good lord. Someone call the Apocolypse Department at SI. I think Brooks from SbB said it best when he emailed me the story...."There should be a law against anyone over 9 yo wearing them." Amen.

Oh, this? It’s just my Madden 2008 Championship-style ring (Majorly English)

Took the words right out of my mouth. Any doof who'd buy crap like this should be beaten senseless on general principle. No jury on earth would convict you, it would be considered justifiable.

If they offered those for Tecmo Bowl, I'd have LOVE one hand and HATE on the other, Radio Raheem-style.

But yeah, this is lame.

Wow. That's about as bad as Al Michaels comatose commentary for the game.

He's at the 10, 5, touchdown Green Bay. At the buzzer.

Wait, wait, wait. I need a ruling on this.

Is this actually better or worse than fantasy football championship rings?

Fantasy football championship rings at least force you to interact with other human beings for a period of several weeks. So far as I can tell, a Madden ring doesn't require any human interaction, save for the occasional racist 12-year old splitting time yelling at you and his Mom over XBox Live.
