“Don’t count the days, make the days count.”
The most illustrious athlete to come out of Louisville died at the age of 74 on June 3rd.
Muhammad Ali had a cocky nature about him in the prime of his career. This caused fans to dislike him for being himself; he was hated for being the greatest.
His death has a lasting effect on both boxing and the Kentuckiana area. Ali represented those communities his entire life, and did it with respect.
A genuine athlete who was unafraid to speak his mind was lost, but his legacy will never be forgotten.
