Longtime NY Giants owner and Pro Football Hall Of Fame member Wellington Mara has passed away at the age of 89.

While our thoughts are with the Mara and Giants families this morning, it is nice to imagine that Mr. Mara and Leon Hess are having a heck of a Tecmo Bowl battle up in heaven.

Will Leitch points out that Mara was a committed anti-abortion advocate, which brings to mind the sage words of Mark Bavaro, who while appearing in a Mara financed pro life film, “Champions For Life” reminded viewers that if his mother had opted for an abortion, Bavaro couldn’t have caught Phil Simms’ TD passes.
