EDSON AREANTES DO NASCIMIENTO "PELE"
INDUCTED ON: July 1st, 2006
REASON FOR INDUCTION:
"PELE" is without a doubt one of the BEST FOOTBALLERS(soccer players) that this sport has ever seen. His talent was like non-other. "PELE" was also a member of several winning Brazilian National Teams not to mention that "PELE" was the STAR of the now defunct New York Cosmos. And like Julius Caesar, "he came, he saw, and conquered". He put asses in seats at Giants Stadium and well, I guess you can say that HE WAS THE REASON as to why the Cosmos OVERSOLD Giants Stadium in the 70's. He's one of the BEST and one of the most famous outhere today. His contributions to this sport are many and we thank him for putting this sport on the map not just globally but in the U.S too and for bringing that "special magic" to the Beautiful Game!
