The football (soccer) legend George Best has died after a series of problems with his health. Although I am not old enough to have seen him play, he would have been fun to watch and, probably, more fun to hang out with.
He has a few classic quotes I found amusing,including:
"I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered."
"I used to go missing a lot… Miss Canada, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World."
