MUHAMMED ALI, RIP

Float Like A Butterfly

I was 10 in 1978.

The media figures of that time were larger than life and were predominately from sports. A good day was watching ABC’s Wide World of Sports and catching a Harlem Globetrotters game with Meadowlark Lemon and Marques Haynes, Evel Knievel jumping some busses after chatting with Frank Gifford, and Muhammed Ali talking smack with Howard Cosell.

Now, Ali has joined the rest of these greats in the big sports arena in the sky.
