First of all, hell yeah. That WAS sports. ABC, baby. Adjust the tin foil on your antenna, make your sister go stand in the proper place, touch the foil, and hold her hand up for good reception, and you were in business.

I heard a cool story about them. Brown and Ali were good friends. One time, Brown bet Ali that he could take him out if he wanted to. So they made that bet: Brown, you think that you can knock me out? Go for it. Apparently Brown threw four of his best punches..... and hit nothing but air. Ali dodged them all. Ali then turned around and peppered Brown with a bunch of jabs in a flurry that Brown later stated looked like a hailstorm coming at him. He didn't even know where they were coming from, but he just kept getting hit and there was not a damn thing he could do about it. At that point, he understood.
