Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
It's devastating to hear that Jimmy Mac has passed on. He was a true gentleman of football, as fine an inside forward who ever graced a football pitch, and, above all, my boyhood hero. Where were you on the evening of March 7 1961, you may ask? Well I was at Turf Moor, nine years old, watching Burnley beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 in a quarter-final FA Cup replay. It was a brilliant football match and Jimmy played a massive part. That night made me everything wot I am!
