40 Years And Ali In The Light Gray Suit

May 25, 2017

It was exactly 40 years ago today that I wore a beautiful white suit, looking so great and journeyed to see the great Muhammad Ali, who of course looked even better, in a light gray suit.

The juxtaposition over 40 years could be frightening, but I choose to remember the good, especially that, emanating from Ali’s personality that day.

That great personality and his kindness is what I remember most fondly about that day and about Muhammad Ali.

He talked into my big tape recorder and I did plead with him to retire. A kid walked away without Ali writing “to his name.” “What’s the name, Ali asked emphatically.

The kid said “Donald, to Donald.” On we go.


Eleven years later, another “double digit” year Ali, Angela and Andy B.
