RIP to one of the greatest players of any sport.  Soccer legend Pele passed away at 82.

 

As a sophomore, in high School, I had a buddy who was a huge soccer fan and he basically dragged me to old Memorial stadium to watch Pele play.  I knew then and still don't know a damn thing about soccer, but that day Pele played and scored 3 goals.  My buddy said you just saw greatness.  He was not wrong.

 

RIP Edson Arantes do Nascimento.  Otherwise known as Pele
