Default Re: Anyone here met Ali?

I met him with my Dad in Vegas at a book-signing in a Casino. We were there for the Hagler/Hearns fight. Damn, almost fainted at seeing him. He signed a Muslim religous book. Then as my Dad took pics of me with him, the guy who was with Ali took our camera and told my Dad to get in as well. In one pic, I stood face to face with Ali,(me grinning like an idiot) he leans in close and says `don`t smile look serious` and then he starts biting his bottom lip like he used to do with his opponents. What a thrill, he was great with us. But, even back in 85, you could see the affects of Parkinsons... And his face was unmarked and still pretty !!
