A news article reminded me of one of those random incidents that happen in life that you never seem to forget.

When I was a teenager, I of course spent a lot of time at the mall. One day, my friends and I were kicking a hackey sack around outside one of the mall entrances when an old man in dirty clothes approached us. He indicated that he wanted to join in on our hackey sack session, so we obliged. Before losing interest and walking off, he shared these enlightening words with us:

"I used to be a soccer champ. My name was Pelé."
