Though about this one for a while and I'm going to try to get things back on topic.
I really like Ali pinball because the theme is an oddity in pinball about a great athlete among the best in his sport. It just so happens it was designed by one of the greatest pinball legends ever to live. You may have heard of this man. His name is Harry Williams.
It bothers me that people think Hollywood movies are based on anything factual at all. They are dramatizations very loosely based on historical events. They mean nothing compared to real life.
I feel there is an entire generation of people that learned what happened in Nam by Apocalypse Now and learn what happened in the more recent war failures by watching American Sniper. It just makes me sick to my stomach. Hollywood is a money machine, nothing more.
One not-so-political statement I am left thinking about here. Before you judge Ali's life, think about the current state of professional sports where it's only slightly frowned upon to take performance enhancing drugs, slap women around, and run drugs in and out of the country. No one is making an uproar about the current professional sports soap opera on Pinside so just calm down and please let the man rest in peace with respect. Greatest boxer? possibly... Baddest-ass boxer- certainly!
