Next thing I know, he jumps in the air and flips into a somersault and kicks the ball in; upside down and backwards -- the god**** goalie never knew what the f*** hit him. Pele gets excited and he rips off his jersey and starts running around the stadium waving it around his head. Everybody's screaming in Spanish. I'm here, sitting alone in my room, and I start crying."
  • (J.C. Quinn) "That's right, I start crying. Because another human being, a species that I happen to belong to, could kick a ball, and lift himself, and the rest of us sad-assed human beings, up to a better place to be, if only for a minute -- let me tell ya, kid; it was pretty god****ed glorious. It ain't the six minutes -- it's what happens in that six minutes."
