    Guess who I had a beer with in Omaha

    So I'm sitting in this bar and this rather large dude comes in and sits right beside me. When I glance over I realize it's Leon F-inf Spinks-former HWT champ of the world. He lives in Omaha now. Cool dude.

    Wow - what quirky coincidence. Wonder why he wants to live in Omaha?

    Remember, he won a split dec vs Ali in '78 to gain the crown, then when Ali and Don King pressured him to fight again in less than a year, Ali beat him up and Spinks never had much of a career after that. He was a decent Hwt. Olympic Gold medal winner (and his brother too).

    I keep bringing this up about Ali every time people argue he was one of the greatest boxers all time. No, all-time great fighters don't lose the title three times; entertaining, but not a record to compare with Louis and Marciano.

    Louis ...yes.

    Marciano? no. He fought nothing but stiffs and was lucky to keep the title against an elderly Archie Moore. IMO

    Not a heavyweight, but IMO Sugar Ray was the best ever, pound for pound.

    Never seen it, may have to check it out. Awhile back I saw a bio on espn classic about him. I was far too young when he was still fighting to remember, but man that man was quick.

    He had a crapload of knockouts for his weight class.

    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
