Puskas

Happy Thanksgiving!

A fellow I met in the cruise reminded me that the flickering lamp of history sometimes becomes vivid and the passions of former days may be rekindled through modern magic, in this case YouTube.  We talked about the great Hungarian soccer team of the early 1950's and he told me that some of their play was available on YouTube.  Amazing.  They were a grand team, called the Golden Team, or the Magical Magyars. They invented "total football", the 4-2-4 offense, and their captain was Ferenc Puskas ("Gunner", his real name was Purczeld), one of the greats.  His name was always in my ear as a boy, as Babe Ruth must have been in the ear of American boys in the 1920's.  After 1956 Puskas played for Real Madrid.  I saw him play once.  I never forget beauty.  He lived to be eighty years old and grew fat and, I hope, happy.  Here is a YouTube Puskas Compilation (five minutes) and England-Hungary game of 1953.  Enjoy, and my thanks to Al Jenkins.
