Elvis and Ali apparently knew each other, according to this undated Ali quote from the Elvis Information Network: Elvis was my close personal friend. He came to my Deer Lake training camp about two years before he died. He told us he didn't want nobody to bother us. He wanted peace and quiet and I gave him a cabin in my camp and nobody even knew it. When the cameras started watching me train, he was up on the hill sleeping in the cabin. Elvis had a robe made for me. I don't admire nobody, but Elvis Presley was the sweetest, most humble and nicest man you'd want to know.
You should read the whole thing here, to really get the full impact. But here's an excerpt:"I have an idea! It's so f---in hot in here, let's all take our shirts off!" she squealed. Her friend was game. "If we take our shirts off, will you take yours off, Andrew?" she purred.

Even two former Democratic defenders of Ford's position, Jim Kyle of Memphis and Roy Herron of Dresden, joined Republicans in Thursday's vote to void the election.

Present for the evening along with Ford will be the films main producer, Tia Yoka McMillan. The two will answer questions after each showing, said publicist Patricia Rogers. First question: Why so much for a ticket? Next question: Is this a fund-raiser for Fords campaign? Rogers has already answered that one with no, though she said that, if all goes well, a sequel is in the works, entitled Mr. Ford Goes to Washington. She swears she isnt kidding.
Speaking of flipping scripts, the plot of the film has to do with several college friends gathering at a friends funeral and reprising their relationships. Hmmmm. That sounds familiar.

Or the toilet.
Worst was the time we checked out this (trendy) restaurant in Memphis that shall be unnamed. It was our 12th [!] meal, and they knew who we were and were watching. There was not a thing I could eat mostly undercooked fish. So I put most of it in my napkin and dumped it in the ladies room toilet. I swear it got stuck. Pounds of oily fish and a napkin.
Quick: Name the restaurant.

The Grizzlies rank 26th of 30 teams in the NBA in per-game attendance, but that isnt what Spears was talking about. He meant noise, passion, energy.
I dont see why Memphis crowds shouldnt be like the ones in Sacramento, Spears said, referring the cowbell-banging crazies that have made Sacramentos Arco Arena one of the leagues better homecourt advantages over the past decade.
Well, tonight is the last chance to prove Spears wrong before the playoffs start, as the Grizzlies play their final regular-season home game against the Los Angeles Clippers on fan appreciation night. Tipoff is 7 p.m. and the game is not televised, so theres only one way to see it.
