So, maybe you saw a commercial this past college bowl season and thought, “was that a spoof spot?” No, your eyes weren’t deceiving you.
That was coach and TV commentator Lou Holtz saying, “We have to keep focused on the goal, and the goal is heaven. . . . Winning is about doing God’s will . . . [and] loving people with all you’ve got.” Coach Holtz continues on to talk about how we all fumble. “It’s going to happen” he says. And of course, that’s why there’s confession: “to get you back on the field.”
According to the CatholicsComeHome.org website: “COACH HOLTZ EVANGOMERCIAL…A WINNER IN COLLEGE BOWL GAMES! Will Air During NFL Playoff this Sunday, Too”
And remember, “There’s spot waiting for you on the starting bench this Sunday,” says the Coach. …Hmmm, wouldn’t we rather get in the game than be on the bench?
