Comments: Bryant Gumbel -- A Painfully Silly Man

Dead right on, on every count. Gumbel longs for the day of the radical, like every other aging '60's leftover. Of course, at the same time as Ali there was Joe Frazier going to the White House; Smith and Carlos were offset by George Foreman pulling out the US flag; Jim Brown played at the same time as Mike Ditka, a self-described conservative.

So it's not political activism he longs for-- it's liberal activism he longs for.
