I was sad to see the announcement of George Best’s death. I am not a great sports fan and would only occasionally watch soccer. But growing up when George Best was playing, and playing at his peak, was to see magic. During those years he brought uplift and pleasure into millions of lives; he played transcendently and allowed others to momentarily experience transendence through his play.
Nothing that he did in his subsequent life subtracts from that magic.
