Brian, thanks for participating in my contest and congrats on your placement. You beautifully captured Maradona's contributions to soccer and otherwise in very brief. Best. Mohan

Nice tribute Brian, do you speak spanish? My wife is from Argentina that's where I learned about El Pibe de Oro. The golden boy. Lionel Messi was his disciple and has now even surpassed Diego in wins, just hasn't won a world cup.....yet!
