Aristotle and...football?

See a Canlit novel get quoted by a sports commentator! This made my day:

"Talented, ambitious and good looking, [Jose Mourinho] has all the intangibles that persuaded the world to bow at Alexander's feet. But he also has an appreciation for balance, and an open ear. And when he addressed a throng of reporters in the run-up to today's Champions League final, he might just as easily have been reciting one of Aristotle's lessons.

I think the story of Alexander is big enough for all of us, no matter who we are. He's the mad, bad, classical superman.
