“I’m sorry Joe Frazier is mad at me. I’m sorry I hurt him. Joe Frazier is a good man, and I couldn’t have done what I did without him, and he couldn’t have done what he did without me. And if God ever calls me to a holy war, I want Joe Frazier fighting beside me. ” – Muhammad Ali

The Billy Bopper Tour
The Billy Bopper Tour is a golf tour consisting of 40 friends that get together to compete in the world’s greatest game. The tour was founded in 2005 as a 12 man collective, and has since expanded beyond its original intent. The Tour was originally created to reunite old friends who fell victim to life and separated with time. After a four year run as the inaugural chairman, Jason Hawkins stepped down and passed the torch to Joe Renzi who, to this day, oversees its operation, and makes decisions with the advice and consent of Sean Meehan, his principal advisor.
People often ask what the name “Vito Smash” means. Those two words first fused when a friend programmed a computer game that required the player to smash as many “Vitos” as possible, by pressing a lever, prior to the “Vitos” escaping the room. “Vito” was the first name of another friend. Since the games small inner circle release, and subsequent to someone, somewhere beating level 5000, a group of friends has used “Vito Smash” as a moniker for their traveling softball teams, basketball teams, and much, much more. The legacy of Vito Smash would not exist today without the persistence and vision of Tim Fields and Troy Morrison.
