That’s It, Houshmandzadeh Boycotting Madden ‘10

ESPN may be boycotting the Ben Roethlisberger story, but it’s all over this breaking news: Former Cincinnati Bengals & current Seattle Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh (“championship!”) is boycotting “Madden ‘10″ because, he says, his rating is too low. (Terrorists throw up hands in disgust, say it’s just not worth hating us anymore).
