MY LIFE THROUGH MY T-SHIRT COLLECTION- #10 PELE

IMG_1072

I got into soccer aka football rather late in life- in my early 40’s. Of course I knew of the great Pele- when I was a teenager he came to America and played for the New York Cosmos and filled Giants Stadium every week. Pele may be the greatest player ever- I am thinking Pele or Diego Maradona but I am no expert.

I got this t-shirt over the internet a dozen years ago- and its a great fit unlike recent internet purchases. Now that I think of it- the t-shirt that doesn’t feel comfortable that I buy on the internet seems to be a recent thing. Back in the early days they always fit well and felt comfortable.

When I see this t-shirt I have a memory- Gettysburg -summer mid 2000’s- 90 degrees and sunny. We were on a ranger guided tour at the high water mark where Pickett’s Charge ended and a bumble bee kept following me wherever I went for an hour. Annoying but I didn’t get stung.
