Haha---I've heard them all before :). He was very very good in his 2nd, third, and 4th years before his lead feet got him killed behind a sub-par line. His best attributes: Reading defenses, being a leader, and finding the open man---average arm but lotsa heart, but not Unitas or HOF material, for sure.

That's OK...I can only really think of the awesome Pele from your fine country--perhaps Reynoldo can compare after his career is over?

You mean RONALDO... No, Steve, no way... He's a great player, but Pelé is unique!!! People over here say that he's the "Eternal King" of soccer... I don't know if furthermore will be born someone better than him!!

By the way, I have a doubt... Joe DiMaggio was the same of an American TV show entertainer??

He played baseball for the New York Yankees in the late 30's, 40's and early 50's. The Yankee Clipper. Big Number 5. 56 game hitting streak---awesome Hall of Famer. He was married to Marilyn Monroe for a bit.

Pittsburgh did not have a "team" in the 70s. They had WORLDWIDE DOMINATION in the 70s! Steelers AND Pirates!!

Thanks Steve... I know he was married with MM, but did he really an entertainement or a talk-show on TV(after the end of his career)?? I heard that he did play roles in some films too, is that true??

Peace.

Hmm..I don't remember hearing about that. I doubt the movie thing. Even though Joe was married to a movie star, he disliked the spotlight of Hollywood. I think that's actually the main reason why they divorced. Joe wanted Marilyn to stay home and have them live a normal home life.
