You're my Minesweeper idol.
That's nothing, look up Kamil Muranski on Youtube.
Your modesty comes with a mildly flawed concept. Allow me to suggest a reasoning that this is made more sensical.
Let's say I went to college, and one of the people who I only knew a little bit from there becomes a... Table Tennis champion. Now, let's say he goes to a Table Tennis Tournament. Let's also say he comes in 3rd, because he is fundamentally less skilled than the winner. This former classmate is more likely to be my Table Tennis idol, simply because I have a slight personal connection to him, despite his lesser skill.
We slightly know you, my friend. That makes us all the more likely to seat you in a higher ranking spot in our minds than someone who can minesweet more quickly. Skill is skill, but perception of skill is more important than the skill itself.
