    It’s Jim Nantz that announces for CBS, not Jim Nance. Jim Nance was a football player for the Patriots.

        Cool that Line Drives can be commented on now. There have been some doozies I wish I could’ve exploded on in the past.

    Any word on why we have the details for the final Madden roster update but no update in game?

    Saw at OS that there’s a Sony event in LA today, where there will be hands-on with the game and dev interviews for The Show, The Order, and Infamous. Can’t wan’t for the MLB info to drop, hopefully later today.
