Isn’t it funny how things always come full circle? ESPN keeps Lou Holtz on its pay role just to annoy us all with his pep talks. Lou Holtz turns around and uses his pep talk skills to fire up the Republican party. And now ESPN is annoyed. See? Full circle.
TV sports tries to avoid political controversy. Not ESPN’s Lou Holtz, who signed a tart National Republican Congressional Committee fundraising letter saying the Democrats — “the other team” — is “fierce. They will say or spend anything to get another four downs to spend our money and strip away our freedoms.”
Says ESPN’s Mike Soltys: “We’re discussing it with him.”
Oh, now you wanna discuss things with him?
