The Champ Turns 68!

One of my childhood sports heros, right up there with Gale Sayers, Pele and Joe Namath - Happy Birthday Muhammad Ali!

He was Cassius Clay. He was the Louisville Lip. The Greatest was born 68 years ago today, January 17th, 1942.

The above is from May 25, 1965. Ali upset the heavily favored Sonny Liston in the first minute of the first round of his first title fight. Amazing!

Rope-A-Dope indeed!
