When I was a little kid my parents made friends with a young guy named Joe Frazier

This was the sixties when boxing was really huge and people cared about who was heavyweight boxing Champion of the world. Back then, championship fights could be as big as the Superbowl and everybody knew the best boxers names.

Anyway, there was a boxer named Joe Frazier. He was best known for his three fights with Mohammad Ali. Frazier’s name was constantly in the news. Well, when my parents made friends with this young guy, I got mixed up and I thought my parents were friends with the Heavyweight Champ. My mistake cracked up my family.


Lol you probably couldn’t tell back then but their last names aren’t spelled the same.
