You know those clips that feature football players acting tough or intimating?  Well, the filming of one of those segments almost went horribly wrong for San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis.  Davis was screaming “nobody” and waving his hands when he almost knocked over the Vince Lombardi Trophy.  Davis showed off his great hands but saving the spinning trophy before it fell to the ground. I’m not sure if its bad luck for players to touch the trophy before actually winning it but its not a good start for Davis.

The Ravens Lost The Vince Lombardi Trophy After The Super Bowl

The Baltimore Sun broke the news on the strange disappearance of the Vince Lombardi trophy last night, just hours after the Ravens earned the right to hoist it up in the air as the confetti rain down in New Orleans.

Closing the Gap: Willie Davis talks about football, life
