The Champ Arrives in Denver

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
Muhammad Ali, gently escorted by his wife and another woman, emerged from an SUV at 10:50PM tonight in Denver Tuesday night, and with their help, was slowly walked into Hotel Teatro.
Parkinson's disease has robbed him of voice and his physical strength but certainly not his will.  I yelled out the anthem of his fans, "Champ, you are the greatest."  His wife turned, smiled at me, said "thank you" and then continued to help walk her husband forward.
Muhammad Ali, black man in America who made history, has come to Denver to marvel at Barack Obama, black man who is making history.  Only in America.

When I think of Muhammad Ali, I think of a boxer named Cassius Clay from Louisville, Ky that refused the draft. Then I think of the many young soldiers who had to go to Vietnam, and the many that were killed and became disable, who had no choice. They were not famous, rich, or with political connections.

FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERFLY STING LIKE A BEE
RUMBLE YOUNG MAN RUMBLE AAH!
COMING TO DENVER TO SEE HISTORY!
DR. KING WOULD BE SO PROUD!
