The Cardinals are scheduled to begin game one of a double header at 1:15 pm this Wednesday afternoon - if the weather holds, of course. That means this article will only be up for about an hour before we all move on to the next thing. So, instead of bogging you all down with "words", let us all just enjoy this video of Muhammad Ali making a rare public appearance, surprising the world by lighting the Olympic Torch in Atlanta on July 19, 1996. It is one of my favorite sports videos. I still get goosebumps.

So cool.
