In case you didn't know, today is the 74th birthday of the greatest Heavyweight Champ of all time, Muhammad Ali! I could write a big article about why Ali is the greatest boxer or most electrifying athlete of all time. I could. But, I'm not going to. Because decades ago, Hunter S. Thompson wrote a little piece about the champ that I think pretty much sums it all up.

"That was always the difference between Muhammad Ali and the rest of us. He came, he saw, and if he didn't entirely conquer - he came as close as anybody we are likely to see in the lifetime of this doomed generation"-HST

In honor of the GOAT's birthday, here are some AMAZING highlights from his career. Rumble young man, rumble!
