Muhammad Ali was always well shaved Happy2  Thats a great picture.

I met Muhammad Ali in 1971.  He was touring doing exhibition bouts to raise funds (I assume) before the Frazier fight and my dad was friends with the local wrestling promoter and me and my brother got front row seats.  He sparred with a local boxer who had on the biggest head gear / can I've ever seen (which happened to match his eyes!!)  Very cool - afterwards we met him and got a piece of his hand wrap autographed.  I stashed the treasure away in my sock drawer and unfortunately never told my mom who went on regular cleaning bouts and threw it out.  I should have framed it.  

I'm sure you've probably all seen this youtube video but it's one of my favourite inspirational videos - "I'm so mean I make medicine sick."

Me too. And my wife is a long-time Elvis fan who saw him in concert and got one of his scarves. But he definitely is polarizing.
