Earlier in the day on June 3, 2016, I saw news reports that Muhammad Ali was in the hospital in Phoenix. But, late in the evening, I was surprised when I saw the twitter reports of his death. And then, I turned on ESPN, and for the entire night, I watched discussions, stories, and their memories of Ali. I've never seen anything like this on television.
Just from a social media standpoint, the reaction to the death of Muhammad Ali, is nothing I have ever seen in the past. Articles from the Huffington Post and from CBC Sports help to show the social media love that has been shown in the past few hours for Ali. Through this social media love, I have learned so much more about this man, that I didn't know about before. The more that I learn about Ali, the more and more I admire this man.
