George Best was buried today. Yes, I know he was covered earlier but he deserves mentioning. He was my hero.

Have just moved to Belfast from the States, (so of course I'd never heard of George Best...I know, I know...I'm sorrrrrry), so felt had to learn everything I could about him - though I know nothing of the game of football, watching the clips it's obvious he was a great artist - his movement is full of wit, creating narrative in real time.

Anyhew, felt I had to go to the funeral to report for the paaaawhdcast and found the emotion at times overwhelming. At one point looked around while sappy Brian Kennedy was singing a crappy song from Les Misarable and literally everyone as far as the eye could see was crying.

And right now everyone is out getting drunk.

All due respect to your feelings, but this should have gone in the earlier thread, which is still open.
