Jim McMahon Deserved Super Bowl's MVP Award

February 01, 1986

As for all the hoopla about Jim McMahon's headbands, I think he showed class in choosing to wear "charity" messages when he could have capitalized on the moment and forced advertisements on a captive audience. McMahon did a service to all charitable organizations by reminding Super Bowl viewers they exist.

Any guy who would think to honor a friend (via the "Pluto" headband) during such an important event can come to my house anytime for dinner. I won't even serve humble pie.
