Religion and football

Letter to the Editor | Wednesday, December 10, 2008

I am writing in response to the Viewpoint letter “Comments on Weis” by Peter Hellas. In his letter, Hellas covers such topics as his high school football days, his cable TV show, Weis’ obesity, Vince Lombardi and a “dumb spirit called Titan.”

I wasn’t sure what the point was, but at some stage it seemed like he was saying Weis’ failure to become a spiritual role model has something to do with the football team losing.

As much as you’d like it to, Catholicism has nothing to do with winning football games.
