Hi People no doubt we are all still soaking up the news this weekend of The Greatest in his passing.

Just an idea but why don't we scour the Internet for our fave clips, quotes and pics and post the links here.

If you even dream of beating me you'd better wake up and apologize

I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark.

Ali when asked by an interviewer " Don't you think your being a little bit truculent" Ali answered " I don't know what truculent mean but if its good im that".

Just looked through a few pictures of the funeral etc....probably just me being a miserable sod but I find it pretty disrepectful just how many people are stood with their phones out taking photos of the coffin.

Brilliant bit from George Foreman in Boxing News this week:

"I remember him holding the Olympic torch and he was shaking and I thought "Man, he makes Parkinson's look good." He made everything look good. I remember seeing him with a walker and I thought "I never knew those things were so stylish". There was a photograph of him with his jaw wired together after Ken Norton had broken it and he was eating baby food and it actually looked good and I was like, "Man, I think I'm going to buy me a jar of that baby food". Everything he did, he made it look good."

Not just you......I agree completely.

Sadly its a sign of the times we live in. It was a moment for reflection and remembrance of a great man, not a photo opportunity. Just sad b*st*rds who wants a pic of a coffin to show they were there.....very disrespectful.

gotta love Big George what a guy.  said it best himself when asked if he thought Ali was the best boxer ever.  He said he finds that disrespectful to Ali as he was one of the great humans ever.

Also hearing that people were touting the free tickets they received for the service....classy.
