Football Memories

Watching various “professional” football players bumbling through the snow and rain this weekend reminded me of a story told by NFL quarterback-turned-sportswriter Babe Laufenberg.

Laufenberg was in Hawaii covering the Pro Bowl after Super Bowl XXVIII – a tough gig, I’m sure. Anyway, he was waiting for the elevator when the doors opened and there stood Thurman Thomas, holding his young daughter.

Just the month before, Thomas had lost two fumbles in the Super Bowl, leading to ten points for the Cowboys, and this came a year after he’d lost another fumble in Super Bowl XXVII.

Laufenberg saw him standing there, holding his little girl, and his heart went out to the guy. He said he just wanted to go up and say, “Thurman, don’t drop her!
