What happens when a few Madden gamers are asked to compete in a 40-yard-dash for a free early copy of the game? They run pretty much how you'd expect gamers to run: One bro comes up with some sort of thigh injury, at least two dive at the finish line, and the winners, well, don't seem to represent your typical stereotype of what a couch-bound gamer would look like. Yep: Not a ton of overlap between someone who'd destroy a 40, and that special breed of man who drinks Code Red and eats Bagel Bites at 3:30 a.m. while running a 7-foot-2 created player through training camp.
Also, if you need more for your Barry Sanders fix, No. 20 appeared in a (pretty funny) Pepsi Max commercial this week. This is the most we've seen of Barry since 1999.
