NOT what the TV weenies tell you. Nothing that happened yesterday, last year, last century or last minute, as the TV weenies, particularly mindless sportscasters, would have you believe, is a legend or is legendary.
It has become, in the mindless pap of TV that seems so acceptable nowadays, another overused and improperly used word to mean significant and memorable talent that we all should or do consider as a legend in our own time.
It is mindless TV pap designed to save time. You or I could be legends in our own time if it meant they could save another 30 seconds to show that ad we've all seen a million times.
