January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016

He was always Muhammed Ali. He dropped Cassius before I was born. He was ALWAYS on TV…boxing or talking about boxing….

 

A favorite schoolyard game as kids was repeating Ali’s toasts/ raps…

“float like a butterfly sting like a bee you can’t hit what you can’t see….”

“I’m the greatest, I can’t be beat, fight with me and you’ll get a ringside seat”

“this is no jive. The fight will end in five.”
