For what it's worth, I read this bit about Ali today, regarding The Thrilla:

After trainer Eddie Futch wouldn't let Frazier come out for the 15th round, Wyatt said, he was the only member of the media in Ali's room moments later. The champ, recovering from fainting in the ring, was trying to compose himself in the heat and humidity. According to Wyatt, he said, "It's like dying -- I don't think the pain could be any more if I had died."

eight years pass...

So this is on Showtime now, but whatev. Just wanted to say: Phil Simms is such a horrible stick-in-the-mud. Everyone truly looks like they can't stand him. Adam Schein seems incredibly unctuous. Brandon Marshall lights up the screen, though. So fun to get his perspective every week.

three years pass...

LOL I just looked up this thread, forgetting I had posted the above. I basically would like to reiterate what I wrote. Phil Simms is just a mean person. He went way out of his way to let Michael Irvin that the Cowboys did NOT have any photos of him on their bus. Brandon Marshall is still good, though. And Irvin has 1000x the charisma of Simms.
