Cafe 641 Profile #7: Mojo Mama

**NOTE: Seventh in a series of bare-all, expose profiles that allows Chef to e-hibernate this off season with a clear conscience.

Cafe 641 regulars will quickly recognize this powerful fleur de list fist of victory as belonging to Mojo Mama, the inspiring mother figure of the Cafe's Mojo man. Just another example of the motherly love that lives in the Upper Terrace, Mojo Mama brought her son up in the Black and Gold, then bought her superstitious offspring some season tickets.

From the depths of Chef's off-season clouded memory, here are some Mojo Mama highlights:

* Like Big D, one row below her, Mojo Mama is heavy on the dap. Following any play of any significance, M.M. slaps skin with no fewer than 15 before re-focusing on the game.

* Known for the "Power Fist," the patented move displayed above. Mojo Mama's upright form and clenched-fist intensity inspired a Cafe trademark: the 641 First Down Fist.

* Okay, Chef must stop to confess. The "off-season clouded memory" comment wasn't a throw-away remark. Chef's crystal clear recall is starting to fade. For true. Mojo Mama is a prolific Cafe 641 family member, and Chef's mustache withers at the possibility that he's forgotten some of her more flattering displays. Is it so wrong that she be known by the iconic Who Dat Power fist?
