Guess Tim Tebow isn’t the only one getting their personalized celebration included in Madden ’13.
Go ahead and add New York Giants’ receiver Victor Cruz on the quickly growing list. EA Sports released this video today showing Victor’s salsa dance TD celebration. Not bad at all.
Eli Manning hosted Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago and did a pretty good job. The one skit that stood out to most people as his best was when Eli was supposed to be doing motion capture for EA Sports’ ‘Madden’ franchise. It’s worth a look.
When the game producers asked him to recreate some of his TD celebrations, they were less than enthused with his choices. Finally, Eli mimes making a sandwich as his TD celebration.
The talented people at the real EA Sports have taken it and animated it, which is beyond great. No word if it’ll actually be in the game, but why go through the work if it’s not, right? I guess the Patriots uniform is some kind of default for the test, gotta switch it out and give Eli his due.

The New York Giants have revealed their newest Super Bowl ring, and it really is quite a design. I really like the four Super Bowl trophies built into the face of the ring.
More info from Giants.com.
The top of the ring includes several impressive features. It is covered in round brilliant diamonds that are pave set. There are four Vince Lombardi trophies, commemorating the four Giants’ Super Bowl wins, and each set with a marquis diamond representing the football. The trophies surround the Giants’ iconic NY logo, which is set with round brilliant diamonds on an outline of blue enamel. The top of the ring also includes 37 blue sapphires channel set on the outer bezel. The text around the bezel reads “2011 WORLD CHAMPIONS NEW YORK GIANTS.”
The Giants players also had input on the rings, which were designed by Tiffany & Co.
Unlike most case when football players are in trouble with the law it is because they’ve been arrested. Such is not the case with one of the newest members of the San Francisco 49ers, former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs.
If the rumors can be believed (and they are being investigated) back on March 30 Jacobs and a whole host of people that own really fast, expensive cars that most of us only dream about took a joy ride to Atlantic City. This wasn’t just any joyride though; it was a police escorted joy ride.
