At the end of the game, he’s a hero and the coach asked him to tell why he was playing so good. He says, ‘Well, dad was blind. ’ It’s a kind of life-after-death statement, faith and all that. And that just captured the way I felt about my dad. Had he not died before I had any success writing normal songs, I wouldn’t have ever written a song about a football player.
