Muhammad Ali is in the hospital now with a respiratory ailment (he's going to be released soon), but that reminds me that we don't have a thread for the person who just might be the most famous athlete who ever lived. I've always felt badly for Joe Frazier, because he didn't get the accolades that Ali did, but most of Ali's extra accolades came from what he did outside of the ring - he, himself, said that "Frazier was the greatest fighter of all times, next to me." Ali may not be immortal, but in a sense, he is - people will be talking about him 500 years from now, and that's as close to immortality as you can come. "Muhummad Ali vs. Sonny Liston (1965) - A Look Back 50 Years Later" And for a taste of what it must have been like to fight Ali in his prime, scroll down to the bottom of the first post in "Requiem for a Heavyweight (1956)" and click on the scene from the 1962 film.
Friend and I are taking the kiddos for spring break. One night in Phoenix, two nights in Sedona, one night in Tuba City (hitting the Hope rez for a private tour the next day), three nights at El Tovar Hotel in Grand Canyon Village, then last night back in Phoenix near the airport for flight home. If you have any recommendations in the locations where we're staying, I'll take them. We have one reservation for the restaurant at the El Tovar - the view is supposed to be amazing and we do plan on Flagstaff and Jerome along the way as well. Thanks, Nancy
Dominic Armato (our own Dmnkly) has recently started PHXfoodnerds, a restaurant bulletin board similar in spirit to Chicago's LTHForum. In under two months, Dominic's board has generated over 1,000 different posts which is a fine start. As soon as I found out about PHXfoodnerds, I wrote Dominic and asked him if he'd reconsider, explaining that I have aspirations to take donrockwell.com national, and that I would *love* for him to run a Phoenix forum on donrockwell.com, and do everything in my power to make him a superstar (Dominic, this offer stands, and it's not too late to change your mind! Come baaaaack! I want to be teammates!), but for now, PHXfoodnerds is going to begin carving out its own identity. Despite our loss, I'm happy for Dominic, and also for the great city of Phoenix, and I look forward to supporting this website in the future. My tribute to one of your shining stars, Dominic, and my very best to you, Rocks PS - If any donrockwell.com ex-pats want to begin their own forum in their new hometown, you've got a home and a built-in website right here. Write me and let's talk.
