Containing Multitudes Since 2004
What a treat to see him included here. His contribution to Brazil's victory in the 1970 World Cup was unforgettable - graceful and magnificent. Great goalscorer, unselfish goalmaker and a sportsman of genuine integrity. Those are the times when this really did deserve to be called The Beautiful Game.
Pele was great in 1970 but he's turned in to a bit of a snide commentator re Maradona. Can I suggest Garrincha as a more worthy Brazilian entry for This Sporting Life.
I was too young to watch the '70 World Cup, and had to settle on watching a long-in-tooth Pele make some bucks trying to get Americans interested in futbol with the Cosmos.
