For years its been rumored that any NFL athlete who endorses Campbells 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, Campbells is taking precautions to protect the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals from the alleged but never proven curse.
Today (Jan. 22), Campbells will deliver good luck baskets containing shamrocks, rabbits feet, horseshoes, and soup to Pittsburghs Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Mayor Elaine Scruggs of Glendale, Arizona.
Though Campbells 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.
