    Happy # 70

    Happy belated 70th birthday to Muhammad Ali (a/k/a Cassius Clay).

    Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

    The G.O.A.T.

    IDK if you'll ever see an athlete of his magnitude take the sort of stands that he took. Whether you agree or disagree with his stands, he was never hesitant to stand behind his convictions.

    Maybe Jimmy Brown. But Ali was the most famous person in the world and I don't think Brown rose to that level in terms of fame.

    I still get goosebumps when I think about Ali being the last torch carrier at the '96 Atlanta Olympics. It was a real thrilling omg kind of moment. Just stupendous.

    Pay attention to the open sky
