Lessons from Lasso — Names are Important

Jun 09, 2021

Ted Lasso, the new and immensely popular streaming TV show on Apple TV+ features the antics and quirky, ‘Ted Lasso’ character brought to life in his own TV show series. Lasso first appeared a number of years ago as a comedic character as NBC purchased the broadcast rights to the English Premier League. Played by Jason Sudeikis, Lasso (as a coach) brings change to the difficult football (soccer) team that he has traveled overseas to coach. But one of the first changes he brings to the table is — he remembers people’s names and calls them by their name.

Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, marks the beginning of a new series entitled ‘Lessons from Lasso.’ Rev Brad Kenney will take a look at some of the different lessons from the show and take them on in a chaplain’s angle for football. The Lessons from Lasso series will often be shorter in nature and play during busy weeks in the season when it’s difficult to have a guest or record a particular podcast and topic.

From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 10-15 min) podcast with Rev Brad Kenney, Founder and Executive Director of Soccer Chaplains United and Volunteer Chaplain to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer.

Rev Brad and occasional guests touch on various issues around the topics of faith, family, and football (soccer).
