Dear Dave:

So the great Muhammed Ali "aka" as Cassius Clay has finally fought his last battle. Dying at LXXIV (74) from complications of pneumonia & Parkinson's Disease last night. The three time "heavyweight champion of the world" was a living legend & a boxing master. Ali was a true artist & student of the game who inspired future generations of student boxers to train & take up the sport. Now he can once again harass & tease legendary ABC Sports Commentator Howard Cosell upstairs as they are together "in the afterlife arena" & talk about their great careers.

"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life."
