There's a proverb from Confucius that I read way back when that still sticks with me to this day:
"Find a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."
I think I might have found that here at UFCmania, but I've only scratched the surface.
Once I can retire from the nine-to-five corporate grind, blog in my boxer-briefs, make my own hours and get paid, I'll consider this a "job."
For now, it's just a very time consuming hobby.
So what's that got to do with anything?
Not much, really.
But I just read an interview with Andrei Arlovski on NBCSports.com about his upcoming fight at UFC 70 and the former champ reveals he reads philosophical literature to prepare for fights, including the work of Confucius.
Call it a terrible segue, but at least it's a decent clip.
