UCN WEEK IN REVIEW – Ali’s Last Goodbye

The world’s most famous citizen and the “Greatest of All Time” was laid to rest after two-days of services in Muhammad Ali’s hometown of Louisville.  This week served as a reminder how an individual can change the course of human events and our sports heroes can transcend in-ring accomplishment and impact us all.  Rest in peace, Champ.
