So far as “phantom punches” go, you’ve got to get hit with one before you can call it that. In the sparring sessions at Deer Lake, I’d seen Ali lash out with quick, short punches which wobbled the knees and bloodied the faces of sparring partners. Ali could be incredibly mean in the ring one minute and crack you up the next. I remember one Ali sparring session when he took a big left hook and went down on his back in the corner where I was standing. He sort of rolled back his head, looked directly at me, winked and then rolled back up on his feet to administer a beat-down that left his sparring partner gasping against the ropes.
Shelly, Cassi, Kalia, Dominic, Adam, and Lawon gathered in the Have Not Room to figure out who switched their vote, and Kalia and Shelly lied their faces off, saying it wasn’t them. Then, Rachel made an appearance, for some unknown reason, and asked the group if there were sides now as they discussed how one of their own switched the vote, acting like she wasn’t already aware. Cassi commented that they don’t like Clubsport, so Rachel acted like a 12-year-old and told her that some people do like her, and now she’s here for a month, before storming out of the room.
There were several other regulars at the Ali camp. I met the great middleweight Eddie Gregory, now known better as trainer Eddie Mustafa Mohammad, and we met the late Drew Bundini Brown, Ali’s incorrigible but devoted cheerleader who coined the “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” ditty. There were several children, including two of Ali’s own, and Ali’s reserved brother, Rahman.

You won’t need special credentials to be able to rent a Bugatti, on the contrary, the exotic car rental companies want you. They want to give you the kicks you have always wanted, breezing around in your own luxury car, being the person you want to be. If you have never ridden a luxury car before, that will be the right time to feel the excitement of driving one. On the other hand, you can simply enjoy the ride in style if you avail yourself of chauffeur service.
The new Caymen is everything the 911 has always been and more. It’s not only a great ride on the street it’s also a great track ride. It sounds great, looks great, and performs great. But then after all it’s a Porsche and would you accept anything less? If there were awards for best car this one would certainly be in the running.
