Forget Testing for Steroids

A prime-time trailer for BioWare’s Mass Effect 2 wasn’t the only easter egg for gamers in Sunday’s AFC and NFC championship games. NFL fans that tuned in and saw New Orleans Saints Tracy Porter’s interception on Brett Favre at the end of the fourth period of the NFC Championship can acknowledge that it was a great defensive play. But gamers know Porter’s hidden strength — a Pac-Man power pellet.

Fox’s sideline cameras caught images of Porter sitting on the Saints’ bench without his helmet on, revealing shaved sprites of Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde on the cornerback’s head. The haircut even got a response by Fox’s commentators. Does the league test for power pellets?
