FOX Philly Wishes Joe Frazier a Happy Birthday, Forgets He’s Been Dead for Five Years

Jim Adair - January 11, 2017

Joe Frazier passed away in the tail end of 2011 at the age of 67. Since then, there was the long road to a statue – which also included the death of the original sculptor – and an effort to¬†get his old gym on the National Register of Historic Places. Today would have been Smokin’ Joe’s 73rd birthday. Or, as Fox29 put it, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE HAVE A GOOD ONE!

They also said Frazier will be at City Hall at 6PM tonight. I really hope people don’t go there expecting to see him, and I hope even more that he doesn’t actually show up.

After over two and a half years of planning, sculpting, tragedy, more sculpting, and more planning, there is finally a date set for the unveiling of the Joe Frazier statue at Xfinity Live–September 12th. The Phillies play at home that night, so the place won’t be that busy.

Oh Shit the Joe Frazier Statue Looks Amazing

There’s a video of the colossal Joe Frazier statue being worked on/finished up over at CSN’s The 700 Level, and if you’ll excuse me, I’m just gonna sit here in awe for a little while.
