It doesn't matter who got there first. He was the best in his day, no doubt about it.

Hurricane certainly made the sport more watchable due to his unpredictable actions. Although he doesn't appear to have had a happy family life (two divorces) his family have my condolences.

Life never runs smoothly for geniuses, it goes with the territory. Now he can entertain the crowds upstairs.
