Hand me a towel! The highly anticipated EA Madden NFL 12 hits stores bright and early this coming Tuesday! We were lucky enough to attend the EA SPORTS Madden NFL 12 Pigskin Pro-Am, the third annual star-studded flag football game hosted by EA SPORTS and the NFL, back in late July. Legendary NFL alumni, including Dan Marino, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders and Ronnie Lott were there along with Hollywood celebrities like Rachel Nichols, Chris Meloni and Matt Bomer. They all took to the field in Bryant Park for an exciting, action-packed event to celebrate the launch of Madden NFL 12. We could not believe we got to hob knob with some of the biggest names in Football. While declaring my self an amateur football fan, I couldn’t help be star struck as I stood at the 5 yard line, side-by-side some major media outlets, waiting to interview them. As a blogger, it was overwhelming to be treated as equals next to these outlets and will go down in the books as one of the more amazing events I have gotten to partake in.
We got a sneak preview at the Pro-Am and the graphics are amazing! Check out Brady to the right! They place you right down front and center in the heat of the game. You can’t get any more real than actually playing the game.We can’t wait to really demo the game fully and tell you all about it! But for those die-hard Madden fans, they know it just keeps getting better and better each year!
Watch the EA SPORTS Madden NFL 12 Pigskin Pro-Am airing tonight at 7PM EST on ABC.
