MAYER COLUMN
July 16, 1994
The late Red Sanders popularized the comment when he was doing so well as a football coach at UCLA in the 1950s: “Winning’s not everything … it’s the only thing.” Alabama’s Bear Bryant later got some ink for a derivative of that remark, but it was Sanders who first made it a staple in the quote book. But even Sanders, Bryant and their most intense colleagues never had in mind what happened to that poor Colombian soccer goalie. He was human enough to commit a maneuver that led to an American score in the World Cup competition, and some nut cases from home made that his last full measure of devotion. It will be hard to plead not guilty by reason of insanity since the at least 12 shots were pumped into the hapless victim. But who know what the likes of Bill Kunstler can swing in a soccer-friendly courtroom.
