    Apparently in his den, completing his first book. Due out in September:


    Already some positive reviews from Mike Golic, Charlie Weis, Phil McConkey, and Joe Theismann.

    Here's your book description: Dominic Fucillo is a tight end for the surging New York Giants. Rebellious, ferociously angry, deeply religious and fighting injuries and a crumbling love life that would bring the average man to his knees, Dom is a veteran player who is having the toughest season of his career at a time when his team can do nothing wrong--or so it seems.

    By golly, if Mike Golic, Charlie Weis, Phil McConkey, and Joe Theismann all liked it, I'm buying it immediately.

    I hate crumbling love lives that bring average men to their knees.

    I can only hope it's as good as "Danger In Center Field" by acclaimed novelist Willie Mays.

    I assume there are a lot of pictures in it, since Bavaro was never known for his wordiness.

    irony is, bavaro is one of the brightest, most well-spoken athletes i've ever known. he's a great interview since retiring, admitting he was a "bit Neanderthalish" during his playing days.

    clearly this is an autobiographical "novel." as for the good reviews from mcconkey and the others, yeah, they're b.s. mcconkey is probably bavaro's best friend in the world. in fact, bavaro so intimidated even parcells that the big tuna would communicate with him through mcconkey.

    could be an interesting read. at least for high schoolers.
