Very. I haven’t jumped on the Messi-as-GOAT bandwagon because I remember who Pele was and what he did. Three World Cup titles, etc.

To be sure, Messi is in the GOAT conversation, but for me it’s still Edson Arantes do Nascimento, born 1940, died 2022.

I did not know until yesterday that Pele was the son of a pro footballer; his dad played for Fluminense in Brazil.
