Another fucking Farewell

Goodbye Muhammad Ali.  Self named, earned and worthy of the title, Greatest of All Time Boxer. Olympic Champion, Conscientious Objector, Muslim convert, Humanitarian.


No one knows what to say when the best of a generation passes, so when the best of all time in a sport or of a single skill or talent area, it is nigh impossible.


For me, the son of a man who loved boxing, and the nephew of amateur boxer in the Navy, I saw a great deal of his later career, and made sure to seek out the videos of his early career.  I was never sure if he was the hero or the anti hero, the villain or the sly fox who makes the audience love him, regardless of the stance he takes.




Farewell Mr. Ali.  I will miss you.
