Whether or not you are a footie fan, this is a sad story - another greatly-talented, self-destructive working-class lad. Manchester United George Best tribute

...At least Maradona seems to be doing ok these days.

I remember in the days of the lost and lamented (at least by me)NASL, Best, who was already well past his peak, dribbled his way through 5 or 6 defenders and scored a goal---
---made those defenders look like children!

George Best.. Someone who wanted to be the best at everything. Playing footie, he wanted to be the best.
Unfortunately, he also saw drinking and partying as something he had to be best at...
Sadly, those 2 things mix very poorly...
