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

RE mem mem re mem me mem ber  a half century ago – – – 


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 🙂
