'Rambo' Bavaro Is Brought to His Knees

February 07, 1987

As Super Sunday approached, I was intrigued with the spotlight on one Mr. Mark Bavaro. The media was all over him, but "Rambo" handled it the way "Cobra" would have, keeping to himself and letting his actions do the talking.

One incident that passed unnoticed was that when Bavaro caught his touchdown pass, he made the sign of the cross. I thought this was done in deep respect and gratitude, but later I saw the replay and discovered he did it the wrong way!

Way to go, Mark, you really blew your cover on this one. I think he was better off doing the Gatorade shuffle or something. By the way, is he really Catholic?
