Martin Palermo for IBWM

Through a coincidence of geography and television rights, I spent a disproportionate amount of time watching the Argentine Primera in the late 90’s. There were a lot of talented footballers operating during this period, but there was one be-mulleted colossus who stood out above all others: Martin Palermo, El Titan. Palermo stood out to me not just for his achievements but also for his post-goal celebrations; I loved how he invited his teammates and the crowd to share the joy of the goal with him. I wrote about him for In Bed With Maradona’s Buenos Aires assignment.
