We were only 19, what did we have to talk to Muhammad Ali about?

“My parents are from Italy. I am a transplant from upstate New York and I do real estate now to stay busy. I boxed at Notre Dame and around 1970, I was visiting a friend in Pittsburgh, PA. Muhammad Ali was in town for an exhibition.  We called his hotel and they put us through to his suite. His bodyguard answered and we asked to speak to the Champ. He put Muhammad Ali on the phone and he talked to us. We were only 19 years old, what did we have to talk to Muhammad Ali about? He chatted with us until we ran out of things to say. Years later, I ran across Muhammed Ali and told him that story. He looked up at me and said, ‘Time sure do fly’.”
