Longtime football fans remember Danny Abramowicz as the NFL’s receptions leader in 1969 and QB Archie Manning’s favorite target with the New Orleans Saints. I, however, remember Abramowicz from his days as a wide-eyed, excitable special teams coach for the Chicago Bears under Mike Ditka. Now I will remember Abramowicz mostly for the “spiritual fitness” show he’s going to host on global Catholic network EWTN:
The show, called Crossing the Goal, was created in conjunction with the EWTN Global Catholic Network. Segments include “The Kickoff,” where the problem of the day is presented; “The Game Plan,” where two hosts examine the facts relevant to the topic; “The Red Zone,” where the hosts talk about how they’ve dealt with the problem in their own life; and “The End Zone,” where each host gives the audience something to think about for the week in hopes of providing real solutions to the spiritual challenges men face.”
Abramowicz, who admitted to being a “party boy” and an egotistical boozehound, has high hopes for helping those on the path of Matt Leinart:
“The economy is tough,” Abramowicz said. “Men don’t think of the Lord when things are rockin’ and rollin’. When things start turning bad, that’s when we need to be available to the men.”
Crossing the Goal is expected to premiere Aug. 31 and air Sundays. Its website, crossingthegoal.com is still under construction. It is expected to be completed in six days, followed by a day of rest.
