Sent off...

So poor old George Best finally got the red card. The BBC had been prepared for weeks and instantly screened an obituary show. I was cooking some food and half-watching, I have no interest in football, especially since the shorts got so long. However seeing the old footage of him in the 70’s reminded me how in playground discussions I used to cite George Best as my favourite player. I realise with retrospect it probably was probably based more on his looks and the fact that he was dating Miss World, Mary Stavin than his football skills. He was really sexy and no amount of nylon shirting could detract from that.
