George Best - I Thought He Had Died Already
A brilliant footballer, George Best died way too early. Still, he brought it on himself with a major alcohol problem. To me it is a crime that he was given a liver transplant and then continued his wild ways with more drinking. Still looking at what he acomplished on the football field I think he will be missed. All across Britain this weekend there have been minutes of silence, remembering the footballing genius rather than the poor drunk he became.
I will always remember this quote, "90% of my money was spent on women, cars and drink; the rest I squandered."
San Nakji for President!
