    I too have never hear "grey ghost" applied to TS. He was just too cool to have nicknames. Was this a childhood thing, being a superhero or some such?

    well, you're right about James Brown at least. As for Big Al.... last I heard he's still trying to oust the Presidency from Kerry or Bush... good luck at that Al.

    Where in the book? I just took a quick look and couldn't find it. Nor do I ever remember him being called that.

    There is a famous book " La Fabuleuse Histoire
    de l'Athletisme " from the French specialist
    (now he is 75 years old) Robert PARIENTE.
    He met several times through the sixties Tommie
    SMITH and his coach Bud WINTER.
    He had been the bible of track in the newspaper
    L'EQUIPE for at least 40 years .
    As he is living in Paris, I shall call him to
    make sure Tommie was nicknamed "the grey Ghost".
    Which is written in his book.

    >GHOST, GIVE me a issue of any mag. with that nickname.

    I can't recall hearing him referred to by that moniker, but I did not attend SJ State.

    I Googled "grey ghost" and "Tommie Smith" and came up empty.

    Hal Davis went to Cal.
