I was just about too young to appreciate Tony Grieg. So even though the pieces on him portray him as a much-missed sporting hero, I don’t truly care enough to really read them.
There’ll come a time when my heroes die. And sports fans 20 years younger similarly won’t care when the world says goodbye to Viv Richards, Paul Gascoigne, John McEnroe, Steve Ovett et al
It’s all too easy to see our time as the only time.
