George Best on the way out

George Best, arguably one of the greatest footballers ever, is currently in a hospital going through his "final hours". Internal bleeding caused by a lung infection is unstoppable, and he's not expected to last the next 24 hours.

Best was the epitome of the playboy sportsman, he drank, he smoked, he gambled, he fornicated. He once said of his life: "
I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered."

Good luck to you, George. You had a good life, enjoyed every second. In this day and age of political correctness it's just not acceptable to admire someone as dedicated to the enjoyment of life as you've been, but know that we do admire you.

And I think you might have been amused by the upcoming attempts to fit your life into some sort of church-appropriate eulogy.
