I have been so sad with the passing of Boxing Greatest Hits. Muhammed Ali. He was quite a superstar and the most famous and outspoken sports figure of our era. I was impressed at a young age. 7 yrs old when I watched my first boxing match with Muhammed Ali. I was a fan for life of Muhammed Ali and Boxing till the day I die I expect.
I had the opportunity to actually meet Muhammed Ali in person at one of his first interviews after his parkinsons had started eating away at him and his speaking.
It was in Memphis Tennessee at the Omni Hotel. And Ali had more familiar faces as his entourage / Security crew. These guys were serious about their boss’s every need and nothing short of patting us down if necessary.
I was 2nd to last in line for his autograph and his security crew – very respectful and professional watched our every move.
Mr Ali took my hand gingerly and shook it smiling. I was so nervous I stuttered. Mr Ali There is no such sport as boxing without you. You made boxing entertaining and watchable. And you are the hardeest hitter in boxing to this very day nobody hits as hard as you. And God Bless you Cassius Clay you are still and will always be the Greatest boxer who ever lived to fight. Nobody would ever dare step up to your plate and try to take your throne you are the the King. Truly amazing that you could make a fan out of a seven year old girl who still has to cover her eyes when you throw a punch because I am afraid you will sever their head from their body with your fist. But I still watch and close my eyes or cover my ears and I am an adult now. Thank you for so many thrills in the boxing ring I regret you are now retired from your sport.
He smiled a great big Ali smile that would just take your breath away seeing it in reality Television back in those days did nobody any justice. Watching this man sign his name let me tell you anyone on steroids could never look as naturally cut as this man still was. He was fighting his personal battle with the disease yet he looked spectacular – not frail or thinning he looked larger than life and ripped – ready for his next fight. When he stood up he thanked everybody for being his fans when we should have been thanking him for allowing us to bother him in his darkest days. He was very patient, polite, full of grace, well mannered with a security crew that were a fine operating machine ready to take out any crazed fans meaning harm to him. This man was wearing Basketball type shorts and a hawaiian style shirt coming in from the pool.
Ali was a for real a “Mighty Man of Stature” according to the words from the :The Most High God” with the Almighty. You just knew it the moment you came in contact with him that there was something about this man that made him greater and more authentic than anybody in the room.
That was the greatest moment of my life to meet a superstar who finally announced his retirement yet still looked ready to hit harder than any boxer after him.
His lack of cowardice gave him his grace…..
My condolences to his family who were blessed so much to be in his presence everyday of their lives. In the presence of The Most Highs “Mighty man of Stature” God Bless you family of The Great Cassius Clay…..
Putin Respect Statement to Americans
I really am impressed with Vlad Putin’s statement via Obama. I appreciate the respect he is showing America seated in a casual friend like manner with a nice suit. and a written and well prepared statement of importance. Remember our President has advisors wipe his butt for him if he so wants and secret service 24/7 so he is never alone.
We as Americans must stop our Presumptiousness and Assuming Communist Russia has their own butt wiper and speech writer like our American President. He don’t. Just by the way he appears and the papers in his hand that isn’t some doodling he wants us to believe he put alot of thought and effort into his words and why should we believe otherwise. He makes a damn good impression to the world and is very dignified. while our President makes the leader of China pay for his opinion he freely expressed re: American President “He reminds the leader of China of a “Stressed Out Monkey.” and Obama sanctions China for his comment. Our President is the most embarrassing thing American’s voted to represent us internationally. Let alone needed to ring in the new millennium. future generations will read & find Obama as hysterical as I do. What were we thinking and how did Obama as President Happen not just once. (An erogenous mistake) but it happened again? successively.
8 years we forced world leaders to put up with a hysterical President. OMG we will be known as the generation of fools.
President loves the “WORLD LEADER” title and Santions the leader of China for his Opinion of our President the guy is hysterical obviously . If not Hysterical then Obama is as a world leader more oppressive a conqueror than the “Scourge of China, KHAN.” and he conquered his own people not just the rest of the world.
FREEDOM OF OPINION isn’t allotted the leader of China because it cost him. You just don’t go around and sanction world leaders for them sharing freely and honestly their opinion. Expressing himself. WOW What a Poser President Obama be.
Undercover officials enter into a gas station on Sierra Hwy handing the store clerk a 75,000 winning ticket & is handed 75.00 in exchange. Here is the link to the lottery’: The official statement re: Palmdale ticket incident.
I am disappointed and upset that this grand larceny is so widespread even after a store clerk was beaten half to death and hospitalized. He stuck to his story pressing full blown charges of attempted murder until it was discovered by the assailants family. the guys childrens babysitter (divorced with x-wife having custody) happened to win the exact same amount on the exact same ticket.
But the guy still got 2 years for a minor assault because he shouldn’t take matters into his own hands. If he wouldn’t have (because without proof the cops don’t even investigate it – who can protect and serve with a lost cause?) So we are forced to defend ourselves. This is a perfect example of how JUSTICE and DEMOCRACY can only go so far. It is not fullproof, and most Americans have been raised up to don’t put too much faith in the Justice System because it is not GOD.
What form of human rights does the violate? When we are forced in our own communities to defend ourselves because we are the lucky winners of our California lottery. This shit is happening in a rural desert town of California full of working class citizens.
Business owners are suppose to have a higher integrity because they have a customer base that depends on them to be trustworthy. They are handling thousands of our dollars everyday.
Why rip someone off who just won the lottery? Wouldn’t an average “HUMAN BEING” be happy for this lucky person? I would, All my friends would, my local school teachers would, my local cops would, everyone I do business with would. And I find out the store of redemption and purchase gets a cut of the winnings. for every winner they sell they are given a percentage???
What kind of people that are nothing short of DEMONIC act this way??
Everyone needs to wake up & act on this reality. Nobodys doing anything different that I’ve seen. This makes 2 resources endangered. while everyone acts like water is an infinite resource like oil. A burnt down house shouldnt be a wake up call.
Anyone who has a Mom who is at risk for Stroke. Beware. My mom suffered stroke at menopause while on horomone therapy (estrogen). Leaving her disabled in her left leg. She walked with a walker while dragging her dead left leg.
My mom was left handed. Her stroke affected her left side not her right. Which maybe an upcoming breakthrough Strokes occur on left side most of time. & not according to what side is stronger.
My mom became like clairvoyant or something but couldn’t write her name.
Stroke patients are very depressed & I dont believe it goes away. They usually take a regimen of psyche drugs. And eyesight is worse if already wearing prescription glasses. They require a new eye check to ensure your not further alienating them. I learned a lot caretaking my mom. Their meds they hide. All they try to do is not be sick or tirrd or thirsty. Pain doesnt occur brcause this is a sign of sickness. So they ‘ll suffer silently.
We miss you mom
