And While I'm On The Subject...

Happy Birthday also to boxing legend, three-time World Heavyweight Champion (back when it meant something), the immortal Muhammad Ali.

I remember staying up late with my Dad and my brother whenever he had a title bout; invariably, they took place in exotic locations like Manila or Las Vegas, so when they were shown live in Ireland it was usually three in the morning.

For me, boxing died as a professional sport when the man retired.

Happy Birthday, Champ - you are and always will be "The Greatest"...
