Former New York Cosmos and Italian soccer star Giorgio Chinaglia passed away this morning at the age of 65. We’ve had the great pleasure to follow Giorgio and his Football Show twice a week. A true original.
Great Scott! GFOP Gil Westfall recently dispatched via raven the October 17, 1981 edition of The Globe Kicker — A Weekly Guide to “Soccer Made in Germany.” It features Giorgio, PBS and Subbuteo. Our worlds are colliding, Back to the Future style.
Gil wrote, “When I heard those four words synapses fired in my brain, remembering some companion magazines for the show I had packed away. But is that a young Mickey and Rog playing Subbuteo on the inside front cover?” Likely, yes.
Giorgio Chinaglia is an American icon. We’d follow him to the ends of the earth.
