Read about him in the link below. Great pic of Leland in the ring with Muhammad Ali when he served as Ali's interpreter on Ali's tour of China in the article.

    How does a philosophy degree equate to success in international business or law? That’s one of those degrees where people end up waiting tables after graduation. I wish the kid all the best and I recognize that he was at ND, but I’m sorry, I see zero correlation between philosophy and international business/law.

    That's because you don't understand the relationship. Quick google search of "philosophy and law school" yielded the references below on the first page of the search. It's great preparation for law school and other professional programs. Redfield also took business courses and if he wants to go the MBA route he is well prepared.

    I was making a generalization with the insurance comment, not speaking of anyone specifically. Main point remains the same. Few, if any, careers would be aversely affected by giving football a shot for a year or two.

    I received a bachelor degree in Philosophy and never regretted it. It is the study of all knowledge, and most other majors where once contained under it. I have been a dishwasher, but never waited a table in my life.

    A lot of the great philosophers have been dishwashers. Why do you think they called him Plato?

    When Homer left for the off-season the cast of The Waterboy all did, too.

    Coincidence? Likely not.
