Ode to Best

After decades of serious boozing and tomfoolery with slappers, our hero Geroge Best is in critical condition at a London Hospital. He is on life support and not doing well...at all. No I was not alive in the 60's to watch Geroge terrorize with his clever wingplay, but I have seen enough to be utterly inspired by his style and approach to direct, beautiful, and creative football. He was the first real superstar of the game, and not afraid to enjoy the status. It's too bad he kept on with the boozing, into the seventies he became a bit of a parody of his excessive nature and his exploits overshadowed his genius. At the height of his playing career, an older bellboy at a fashionable hotel in Manchester walked in on our hero sometime in the A.M. with two women in his bed and a bottle of fine champagne...the belboy exclaimed "Geroge, where did it all go wrong...?" Much respect. Get well soon.

"I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars - the rest I just squandered." - Geroge Best
