I saw that he went into hospice care the other day. A champion in every way. RIP
"A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
I love how music can brighten up a bad day.
RIP Mr. Joe Frazier
"Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music." ~ Ronald Reagan
"I love songs about horses, railroads, land, Judgment Day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak and love. And Mother. And God." ~ Johnny Cash
Smoking Joe, he was the man. I grew up watching him, Love the memories.
Not an Audiophile, just a dude who loves music, and decent gear to hear it with.
RIP Smokin' Joe

Are you guys kidding? That fight was 'only' in 1971! My father had the Life Mag. with the classic shots of the fight. And what a fight that was. That really was Joe's last best fight. Many of us felt that the beating he took at the hands of Ali even though he won took too much from him. He was never at such a peak in subsequent fights.
RIP, Joe. A heart as big as the world. I remember that Foreman fight, I couldn't believe how Joe kept popping up after being decked again and again by one of the biggest baddest punchers of all time. It was scary yet 'amazing'!

George's point of view after the first knock down....
RIP Smokin' Joe"I saw him get up and I said to myself 'Oh boy, he's going to get me now," Foreman recalled Tuesday during a telephone interview. "You didn't want him getting up, and you really didn't want him getting up mad."
