Float like a butterfly – sting like a bee (50 years later)

As a youth, I was impressed by the light heavyweight Olympic champion. I later respected Clay’s conscientious objector stance in our Country’s dark days of the Vietnam conflict. Yet I tired of his schtick, plus that of Howard Cosell over the years of ALI time.

I admired his boxing skills – admittedly.

 

As a full and open disclosure -> I personally dislike boxing (which was a mandatory phys-ed sport for me at the Naval Academy).

 

As an aging boomer – these 50 years ago milestones – like Beatlemania and Clay’s first Championship belt as a heavyweight definitely make me feel older.

Not old – yet older 🙂
