Christmas is just around the corner and this is my gift to you all.
Blast from the past. Way back, play back. Retro baby, retro.
There have been many great rivalries across the years (Ali vs Fraser, The Greasers vs The Socs, Michael Corleone vs Fredo Corleone, The Montagues vs The Capulets, Rocky Balboa vs Apollo Creed) but none as great as the one between Clive Caldwell and Sharif Khan.
For those who don’t know, Clive Caldwell was a world renowned squash pro and the same can be said about Sharif Khan. Both representing Toronto as their stomping grounds but the zoo wasn’t big enough for the both of them. Thus began a rivalry between two hometown greats besting each other for that top dog position.
That epic era has now come to a close but I’d bet any money that every now and then both old dogs get together to crack a cold one to the opening lines of, “these young pups just got no bite. All talk and no balls!”
