The champ passed away late last nite.
When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

Yeah, I saw that. Sad day. He really was "The Greatest". My folks were "racist" by today's standards, but they respected Ali when I was growing up.   
If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

I clearly remember listing to the Clay/Liston fight on my radio a few years ago.  Great athlete and showman.

Growing up I remember reading about his fights (the next day) in the SF Sporting Green (the Frazier fights, the fight Norton busted his jaw and beat him, etc.) I also remember watching him many times on Wide World of Sports sparring with Howard Cosell and of coarse watching his fights on TV. It was truly a time of some awesome heavy weights of which he was the greatest.

The Ali shuffle was huge for me. No matter where I was I would go out of my way to get to a TV to watch him fight. RIP
