Babalu?

Does anyone know how Roneto Sobral got this nickname? I remember they explained it once but I forgot? Thanks!

i'm not entirely certain of course, there's always room for error or corrections, but i read he acquired his nickname through a gum chewing habit. he used to really dig a brand of gum called 'babalu'.

i'd rather his nickname be babalu than something painfully generic like 'the brazilian assassin', or 'the brazilian nightmare'. puh-leeze. at least babalu is personable; rolls off the tongue nicely!

Babalus a good nickname. One of my favorites actually. Whether it comes from gum or not. Not many people have heard of this gum anyway so whats the difference.
