Muhammad Ali (January 17, 1942 June 3, 2016)

Muhammad Ali dead at 74

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwCx3x7BooY

Just woke up to the news that the Great One passed away. This guy has been a part of my life....all my life and it's strange that he is no longer around. Even though he has been dealing with health issues for the last 30 years and wasn't in the public eye all that much, his legend was always around and that's something I latched onto growing up.  What's really shocking is that he was "only" 74. Because he has been around for so long, I thought he was much much older. RIP.

Muhammad Ali on "60 minutes" with Ed Bradley

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJcDk66qO3E

When I heard that Ali had passed away, the first thing that popped into my mind wasn't a fight of his, but this interview with Ed Bradley. This is an interview that I have watched multiple times over the years and there is one moment that happens that always.....Well, you're just gonna have to watch it and you will see why. Go to the 9:50 minute mark and wait for it. Wait...........

 ;D

Ali was the beginning of my interest into watching boxing.

I've been watching extended news articles all morning on Ali's life. I always knew he was an amazing human being.

Billy Crystal's Muhammad Ali tribute - 15 Rounds (1979)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUNLDqcXG-Q

I had totally forgotten about this amazing performance by Billy Crystal saluting Ali. If it wasn't for Ali's funeral ceremony today with Billy literally the highlight of all the guest speakers mentioning this particular performance, I may have never remembered it. I've seen him perform this before, but I haven't seen this one in particular. What makes this one even better is that Ali is in the audience and they have an inset in screen so that we can see his reaction to what Billy is doing. If you have never seen this before, I urge you to watch it. It's an amazing amazing performance that is riveting. It's so good and it will have you grinning from ear to ear.
