Tomorrow at 11pm (no idea what time zone) ESPN 2 will begin airing the fourth season of Madden Nation. Madden Nation is a televised competition which feature the country's top ten Madden NFL 09 players. This show seems to fall somewhere between geek and jock and I believe that only the geek jocks will be watching since jocks could just watch actual football and geeks could be playing more intresting games. No offense to geek jocks but watching other people play a sports game isn't my idea of fun.
