Subject: Muhammed Ali Gravely Ill

http://www.examiner.com/article/muhammad-ali-ailing-wife-won-t-allow-family-to-see-him

Just saw this article ^^ on the web.  I have not been able to find out what disease he's supposed to have that is causing him the trouble.  He does have Parkinson's syndrome which usually portends a shorter life expectancy.  (Which sucks because my brother was diagnosed with this a couple of years ago).  :-\\

I remember back in '96 I was flying out of Picksburgh to South Bend Indiana, and headed to my airport waiting area is none other than Muhammed Ali and his wife; he definitely had a stagger and the tremors.  He was coming back to his home in Southwest Michigan after his role in the Olympic opening ceremony.  This young kid sitting next to me saw the man staggering down the aisle, and mumbled to himself "God damned drunk, they shouldn't let him on the plane.".

I turned to him and asked him "Do you have any idea who that is you're talking about?  That's Muhammed Ali and I bet that even now he could kick your ass."  The kid turned white as a sheet and said "Oh sh*t!".

Ali and his wife sat a couple rows in front of me (it was one of those regional jet jobbies), and when we were waiting for our luggage at South Bend, he graciously signed autographs and posed for pictures.  In exchange, the fans had to accept a copy of some religious materials he had.  "Fair enough," I thought.

Very sad to hear. He still is the greatest.
I was fortunate to have been old enough to see him in his prime (on TV)

Muhammad Ali's daughter knocked down rumors of her father being near death Sunday, saying he was at home watching the Super Bowl.

May May Ali said she talked to her father Sunday morning on the phone and he was fine. She said he was watching the Super Bowl at home in Arizona, wearing a Baltimore Ravens jersey.

"He's fine, in fact he was talking well this morning," she said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

Interesting development.  Wonder who is stretching the truth here.  I hope it is the brother.  I really hate the thought of a son being blocked from seeing his father.
