Campbell’s Attempts To Ward Off Chunky Soup Curse

CAMDEN, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – With less than two weeks until Super Bowl XLIII, now is not the time for the Chunky Soup Curse to surface.

For years it’s been rumored that any NFL athlete who endorses Campbell’s Chunky Soup suffers from a curse that causes them to get injured and perform poorly on the football field.

With Super Bowl XLIII (Feb. 1) looming, Campbell’s is taking precautions to protect the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals from the alleged – but never proven – curse.

Today (Jan. 22), Campbell’s will deliver good luck baskets containing shamrocks, rabbits’ feet, horseshoes, and soup to Pittsburgh’s Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Mayor Elaine Scruggs of Glendale, Arizona.

Though Campbell’s denies the existence of the “mythical” curse, spokesman Doug Brand says the baskets will serve to ward off any potential traces of it since both Super Bowl quarterbacks, Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner, are former Chunky guys.

Brand believes both teams could use a little luck, and so could the mayors, especially if they place bets on the big game.
