Sponge Homer

Homer H. Hillis, Jr. sponges all kinds of information, business, political and trends. I've been seen on the Sally Jesse Rafeal show with noted trend spotter Faith Popcorn. My Blog will give you an over view of what I'm seeing and reflections on the same.

Yesterday we had Cowboy Football legend Bob Lilly speak to a group of about 500 men at the Abilene Civic Center. Bob told his story of faith and the influence of his mentor Tom Landry. One interesting story was the first time he met Tom Landry when he was recruited by the Dallas Texans and later became the Dallas Cowboys. Coach Landry put three priorities on the board:
1. God
2. Family
3 Football
Lilly thought the coach and it wrong for sure thought football should go to #1 or at least #2. But he would later lean Coach Landry was right.
The unique thing about coach Landry he said was, He lived it!
Landry went on to compete in 5 SuperBowls and the team was called: Amercia's Team for the duration of Landry's coaching.
Lilly also said coach Landry allways opened up the day with a scripture reading and they'd close out a game win or lose with scripture on the subject.
