"Just as music and musicians define the times in which we live; just as they give pure expression to significant moments in our individual lives, so too do the great athletes and their fortunes. In victory and in defeat, it requires something more than physical gifts and strength of will, it is a spiritual quality that connects them to us, their followers, and binds those followers to each other. Barry was one such as this; modest and compassionate in victory, courageous almost to his own destruction in defeat. His path led him always forwards and upwards and he carried us with him. The dove on his shorts was a symbol of the man, an exquisite paradox; the warrior and the peacemaker. He was an unlikely figure in the modern era when the mania of self-promotion has all but obliterated the dignity of sportsmanship in these islands, the McGuigan years are years we remember."--Daniel Day Lewis
