Chunky Soup curse

Is there a Chunky Soup curse? It would appear so after the latest spokesman "Big Ben" Roethlisberger's recent accident, and he's not the only one to land an injury while being associated with the mostly watered down soup company. Reggie White, Donovan McNabb, Terrell Davis, Kurt Warner, Brian Urlacher and Michael Strahan are on that list.

The Roethlisbergers were supposed to start filming their commercial Wednesday, but it's hard to enunciate with a mouthful of glass, a chunky meal courtesy of a 62-year-old woman's Chrysler New Yorker that Big Ben ate because he wasn't wearing a helmet while riding his motorcycle.

The Curse was discovered in 2002 by Dan Lewis, a New York attorney, freelance sportswriter and dedicated blogger, who noticed that those who endorse Chunky Soup sooner or later encounter great woe.

The only pitchmen to as of yet escape (mostly) unscathed are John Lynch and Jerome Bettis.
