Several weeks ago, my pal Raoul Lufberry sent me this story from the Wall Street Journal, Why Your Coach Votes Republican.
Lou Holtz sums up the parallels between football and conservative principles:
You aren’t entitled to anything. You don’t inherit anything. You get what you earn—your position on the team. You’re treated like everybody else. You’re held accountable for your actions. You understand that your decisions affect other people on that team…There’s winners, there’s losers, and there’s competitiveness.
