In a new courier-journal.com audio feature, The Sportswriter’s Almanac, I’m taking a look at issues of the day and a look back at this date in sports history.
On this date in 1967, Muhammad Ali won the famous “what’s my name” fight against Ernie Terrell.
Here’s a great look back at the fight and the preceding hype from YouTube. It runs about 10 minutes, but is worth it.
The Sportswriter’s Almanac won’t debut for a day or two, but you can get a sneak preview here. The audio runs about 4 minutes, and I’m certainly open to suggestions or comments.
