    The greatest of all time! Probably the most iconic sports figure as well.
    Never forget watching his fights on ABC's Wide World of Sports.

    RIP Muhammad

    Best heavyweight since Louis and politics aside and no jail time he's the best of all time nothing compares to him George Foreman is a distant 3rd imo. Boxing is a joke these days especially in the heavyweight division. You knew with all his diseases he was not going to make it to 80. RIP and you know the truth now.

    WOW. Just wow...

    Shocking news this morning, for me to hear of Ali's passing. He was a huge part of my childhood. Used to watch his fights with my dad, uncle, and cousins.
    Truly a hero both inside and out of the ring. A man of unsurpassed character, pride, and willpower.

    He leaves a legacy and influence that will never be forgotten!
    I miss you already, Mr. Ali. Thank you for the lessons in manhood and the memories of your butterfly style...

    "The Greatest" indeed!
    R.I.P.

    i'm no fan of boxing, but Ali transcended that profession. Reading about him in the "obituary" thread (thanks HH for understanding the man deserved his own thread), just amazing with what he went through and rose above it all. Truly a champion of life. Rest in Peace, Mr. Ali

    you know, I've always had mixed feelings about Ali. On one hand he refused the draft based upon his religious beliefs of non violence, (and gave up years of his career for it)

    but on the other hand, had no issue with pounding the piss out of a willing individual opponent

    the two things are hard for me to reconcile.

    I guess it's just more fun to punch someone else in the face than it is to have somebody shooting bullets at you.

    Ali didn't want to fight "someone else's" war abroad, as opposed to fighting his own, ie: man to man, in the ring...

    ^ Man, I haven't thought about or heard this song in years... Its a great song. Catchy as all hell.

    When I was a kid, I thought this line in the song was the greatest lyric ever..

    "Muhammad, was known to have said
    You watch me shuffle and I'll jab off your head"

    Sad to thing the great man is gone...
    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

    The greatest. Tyson had a great tweet on Ali's death. "God came for his champion". Can't say it better than that. There'll never be another like him.
