Yesterday was a mournful one for all football fanatics
with the passing of Diego Maradona, the football icon of the generation.
So much of his golden age memories come rushing in,
his phenomenal achievements are well-known
even for a layman like myself who is not at all a dedicated football fan,
and of course it includes the highly controversial moment of the “Hand of God”.
For the longest time, I thought he was much older,
apparently he was only sixty year of age;
but nonetheless, he had lived a beyond remarkable life.
Just as Brazilian football legend Pele said
in his heartfelt tribute,
“One day, we will play football together.”
