God bless you, Ted Diadiun of Cleveland.com. Just when I thought this week’s avalanche of Muhammad Ali tributes would be uniformly thoughtful and compassionate, you—good sir—had the courage to write what needed to be written: that Ali was a preening showboat and is the reason lots of people died in Vietnam. All weekend long, I prayed that someone would issue this kind of needless, contrarian take. And by God, you delivered. Now listen as Marchman and I break down this work of art in this week’s Deadcast.
Ah, but we got more. This week we’re covering the UFC reporting fiasco, weird habits, racist eaters, bag lunches, manager ejections, and more.
