There is a rumor that, if he misses a shot in the soccer game, Shadow the Hedgehog says the "c" word. Not "crap" or "crud," mind you... My local Walmart doesn't seem to have this game, and I think the rumor is the reason why. Google "shadow c word" and see for yourself. How COULD you, Shadow?! You're my favorite character!!! :'-(
