The whole world is still set in the midst of Muhammad Ali tributes and remembrances since his passing on June 3. He transcended a lot of fields and elements of humanity - and of course, being a boxer, one of those more prominent worlds was the world of sports.
You often see athletes cross lines in admiration of others' games. Ali was no exception - and it so happens that one of the paths he crossed was that of then-current, now-former Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Bernie Parent.

At least once when both were in their primes, and then after, when the glory days of sport were over.
A lot of great people and athletes have crossed paths - it's really cool that the Flyers got a connection with one of the very best there ever was as well.
