Kids Corner: what would sport be without the GOATs?

by Marco Grannis

Lionel Messi, Tom Brady, Michael Jordan.

These people are the best at what they do. When you think of Messi, you think of football. Everyone thinks that Messi is the best in football. Or maybe some people think that Ronaldo is the best, but you can’t argue that Messi is not one of the best footballers. Everyone is excited about the upcoming World Cup. I’m excited too, but Messi said this will be his last World Cup. Isn’t that sad? I can’t imagine football without him.

It’s kind of like when Michael Jordan retired. You don’t even have to be a basketball fan to know who Michael Jordan is. Michael Jordan is one of the best in basketball. So it is with Tom Brady and football. He’s going to retire soon, and for good. These people are a gift to the world. Every sport has the best of the best, and when they retire it’s like the sport loses its meaning.

I am a huge football fan. My family is from Argentina so I will be devastated when Messi retires, just like football fans everywhere. I can’t imagine watching football and not watching Messi. What’s really fun to watch are the great moments where he pushes someone out and they fall to the floor, or the great goals he’s scored.

Let’s all cheer for Messi and his last World Cup.

For you, Messi, the GOAT!
