1. He's been regressing dramatically over time. Sad, but I too hope he passes gently.

2. Wow. Just wow.

I'm no boxing fan but he's lived his life with a kind of grace and dignity and conviction that is humbling. If ever there was an icon of a time period, he is one for the 60s. Cross easy, Ali. Many will mourn your passing.

7. definitely NOT a boxing fan, but ali has always been a beacon of courage.

it took courage to change his name, courage to refuse to fight in vietnam.

it was only a few years ago, through a chance glance at a quote, that I learned of the muhammad ali institute for peace and justice:

may your passing be gentle, brave soul. you have earned your rest.

11. Correct me if I'm wrong, but

before he was Muhammad Ali, he was Cassius Clay. Did he convert to Muslim and thus the new name? If this is true, why doesn't the GOP condemn him for being a Muslim like they do with so many peace loving Muslims in our country? Just because someone practices that faith, it doesn't make them a terrorist.

20. Ali's daughter: The Greatest is OK, watching game

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Muhammad Ali's daughter knocked down rumors of her father being near death Sunday, saying he was at home watching the Super Bowl.

May May Ali says she talked to her father Sunday morning on the phone and he was fine. She says he was watching the Super Bowl at home in Arizona, wearing a Baltimore Ravens jersey.

"He's fine, in fact he was talking well this morning," she said in a telephone interview. "These rumors pop up every once in a while but there's nothing to them."

The rumors were started by a report in a British tabloid quoting Ali's brother, Rahman, as saying the former heavyweight champion was near death. Rahman, though, said he hadn't seen his brother since last summer and had no contact with the family.
