Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans! 

Late Friday Night we received the news that Muhammed Ali had passed away.  The Stanley Cup Final is taking place right now as well as the NBA Finals and when the series end there will be a Champion and Queen’s We are the Champions will undoubtedly play, but when everything is all said and done there will only ever by one The Champ.

Ali transcends all sports and when you look back at his life and career, it’s amazing how much he accomplished in really a short amount of time.

Michael Jordan is the greatest player i’ve ever witnessed play in a live sporting event, but he never has or ever will have anything to say about what goes on in this world or have a social point of view, and to be honest the only thing we have from Jordan since he retired has been that stupid crying Jordan meme.

Ali on the other hand had plenty to say and even made a stance about not joining the army during some of America’s darkest days of patriotism.

He was the Champ for what he did in the ring, but unfortunately all of us my age or younger were robbed of what he had to say due to Parkinson’s.  Granted Ali was there in Atlanta in 1996, and he was brought out for pictures and events in his later days, but we were really robbed of what he had to say the past 20 years.

Ali along with Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky are the greatest to ever play, but Ali had something to say and we all listened and I just wished he could have said more.  RIP Champ!
