Talkin’ Sports

50th Anniversary Feb. 25, 1964
Clay beats Sonny Liston
1.) Tuesday was the 50th Anniversary of the Cassius Clay – Sonny Liston fight – Ali Won in an upset and really changed the sport – Liston could not answer the bell for the start of the 7th round.  First time Ali said, “Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”  Clay was 22.  Though I don’t remember this fight I remember most of his other fights and his weigh ins were at times just as entertaining.  But he did a lot for the sport.

2.)  Manager-Buck Showalter makes a minor leaguer write a report on Frank Robinson.  When Mr. Robinson came to address the team at which included minor league players a 19 year old said, “I know he is famous what did he do?”  Showalter’s basically said write a one page report.  The young player didn’t know all of his achievement’s that Frank Robinson made which were, 4 World Series appearances, MVP award in both American & National League Triple Crown winner First African American Baseball Manager.  Are just to name a few.

3.)  In College Basketball Wichita State is
They are the first team since UNLV team 1990-91
Which started 34-0 and they are the 6th team to be 30-0 after reaching the final 4.  The previous 5 made the final four as well.  Can they do it again?
