The beautiful game and Pele are so intwined that the term always springs to my mind upon hearing his name, R.I.P. your Majesty .

Research shows Video games  help make you smarter, so why am I an idiot


Very sad to hear, I only knew this guy from his Simpsons cameo years ago and didn't realize he was a real person, so I'm dumb. Tells you all you need to know about my thoughts on football.

He will be remembered. I think I remember being at one of the Olympic ceremonies.
