The roadwork

Joe Frazier passed away last night. He died, at the age of 67, of liver cancer. Among many accomplishments, the great heavyweight champion uttered the best quote about medical education (or any other sort of preparation) I have ever heard:

You can map out a fight plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go down the way you planned, and you’re down to your reflexes – that means your training. That’s where your roadwork shows. If you cheated on that in the dark of the morning, well, you’re going to get found out now, under the bright lights.
- Joe Frazier
