Boxer Leon Spinks is one of many sports figures mentioned in the lyrics of a Beastie Boys song. Adam Yauch (aka - MCA), one of the group’s three members, died on Friday at the age of 47. Spinks is name-checked in the song B-Boys In The Cut with the line, "A-D-R-O-C-K  spells relief. There’s holes in my story like Leon Spinks’ teeth."  (Lane Stewart/SI)
