    Everybody talks about the "Thrilla in Manilla" or "The rumble in the jungle".

    This was Ali at his very finest though. Houston Astrodome, 1966, vs Cleveland Williams (a very heavy hitter) just before Ali had his belt taken for refusing to kill people he had never met, let alone who had ever hurt him.

    The music just adds to his genius.

    How would you fight against that?

    ow..that was like watching a cat toy with a mouse...then snaaaap

    that fight might have been stopped sooner than it was


    so ironic that Ali was both a pacifist and a pugilist ..... and interesting conflict if there ever was one

    They actually were discussing on ESPN today who was better in their prime, Ali or Tyson.

    I mean c'mon, I never even saw a Ali fight, but you can just tell he would have smoked Tyson.

    It is hard to believe he is 70 and Joe Frasier just died recently. I hope Muhammad lives many more years. Happy Birthday Ali!

    The Toronto Star had a great piece on Ali and his close friend, George Chuvalo (93 fights, never knocked down, went 15 rounds with Ali twice. )

    Real touching article.

    Not sure if I agree with that...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Tyson wouldn't even land a punch on Ali.

    The first hard punch Ali landed straightened the guys hair. LOL
