EB Games in Durham just fielded a preorder for 27 copies from someone identifying himself only as "Mister V."

They do, why else would he be doing commercials for them. Also last two years the Charlotte Bobcats drafted Emeka Okafor and Raymond Felton, both of who were on the cover that year of MM. This year Adam Morrison will make Charlotte 3 for 3 on drafting the player who ends up on the cover of MM. Kinda interesting.

Yea I here ya. Be the first time EVER I use a custom cover, because I can't stand to stare at him every time I pick it up. Of course he will still be on the disc and the loading screen. DAMN.

LOL... Same here... I thought the same thing when I saw the title of the thread.... There's gotta be a way around this; I'll cringe every time I see the loading screen.

I guess every time I see it I can just remember back to Senior night at Cameron. You know the night the Heels owned JJ and he had to leave crying. Maybe I'll draw little tears on my TV right below his eyes so I can see them everytime.
