    Boxing legend Muhammad Ali - one of the world's greatest sporting figures - has died at the age of 74.
    The former world heavyweight champion died late on Friday at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix, Arizona, having been admitted on Thursday.
    He had been suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson's disease.
    Ali's funeral will take place in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, said his family.

    My thoughts go to the Clay family, for now they'll be forced to buy a blender to make the milkshakes.

    once upon a time, in 1973,
    i was on a flight from paris to new york...
    we had been in the air for an hour or two when the news floated around the plane that muhammed ali was in first class on the same flight!!!
    when the champ found out that everyone on board knew he was present, he came thru the cabin and shook everyone's hand, that cared to acknowledge him...
    even as i got to shake his hand, and be in the presence of greatness, i also witnessed crass and unflinching racism as several fat, white men called him cassius clay and refused to even offer a hand...
    but mostly, i remember the size of the hand that engulfed mine...
    and his smile, in the face of bigotry, and the glow that seemed to come from his heart...
    rest in power, mr ali...
    say hi to prince for me...

    What that single, exalted man did at the height of his power is the epitome of humility, of greatness, of courage.

    I heard on the news last night that if you happened by his home and rang the bell, at the gate, he was more than pleased to let you into his home for a chat. The man was class.

    Michael J. Fox doesn't use the iPhone's shake function.

    Well... he does... but... unintentionally.

    I am with you man, i don't buy that Parkinson jive talk, Ali's symptoms while Parkinesque were probably exacerbated by engaging in the only, 'sport' where your objective is to give your opponent brain damage in the form of concussion so that he cannot continue. Sickest sport evah.
