Default Saying a Prayer for Smokin Joe Fraizer

It really broke my heart today to read that Joe Frazier is deathly ill with lung cancer and has been placed in hospice.

A true legend of the sweet science. Let's pray and show some love.

Today the Arizona Cardinals won in thrilling fashion via a Patrick Peterson punt return during overtime, but now that the thrill of seeing my team win it's first game since week number one has passed, reality sets in...

There was a guy who sat in Glendale, and watched the Cards live, but he wasn't able to react to his emotions the way I did at the end of that game. As Peterson broke tackles and hot-dogged into the end zone I screamed like a teenager in a B-level horror flick, and felt like the homeless guy who Eddie Murphy had once said that if you fed him a "saltine" it would taste like a "Ritz".

Joe Frazier is a bad mother••••er.

This guy came to fight, every single time.

The thought of him being gone, sucks ••••ing ass. I'm really bummed.

But the reality of death isn't what bothers me most.

As I watched my Cardinals win, the announcers made sure to show us that Muhammad Ali was in the crowd. Ali has Parkinson's disease, as we all know. He knows whats up, knows who he is, knows it all...he just cant say it...

I can't imagine how Ali feels right now, knowing what Joe is going through. He probably has so much to say....

Uggghhh...it's lame.....that is all.

much love to smokin joe ... hope he can get through this peacefully ... i also hopes he can find it in his heart to let some things go ... i know this is probably not the place to bring it up, but he still holds a lot of animosity towards ali for what he said ... some of the things he has said about ali's condition is beneath him ... let's hope he can clear some of that up ..

prayin for ya champ!

I believe that deep down, Joe respects the hell out of Ali. However I also think that the way Ali treated him in the press really got to Joe.
