Pele

Today we remember #Pele. The best we’ll ever see. In 1993 I worked at the World Youth Football Championship in Sydney (a precursor to the FIFA U20 World Cup). Pele was in attendance. There was a media dinner where he was guest speaker. I think it was at the old Menzies hotel in Sydney. I, like many, waited for an autograph. I got it on a ball: “To Woody, Good Luck, Pele”. He made football what it is – the beautiful game.
