Howard Cosell & Muhammad Ali
When We Were Kings
Howard Cosell was the top sports-journalist/ sports-caster / sports-announcer of his generation and Muhammad Ali was the greatest boxer of his generation. Howard Cosell and Muhammad Ali had an unusually contentious and playful relationship.
In the fascinating photo seen above, taken in the 1970s, from ABC's Wide World Of Sports, we see Mahammad Ali grabbing a hair on Howard Cosell's toupee to gently lift it, to embarrass Cosell. Of course this was all in good fun, but they sure had an interesting relationship.
