Lou Holtz received a pep talk from John Boehner

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Lou Holtz has friends in high places. And is tech-savvy, apparently!

ESPN commentator Lou Holtz's name popped up in an unusual place on Tuesday: in comments by Speaker of the House John Boehner. This quote is from NBC's Mark Murray, and was brought to our attention by the esteemed Bomani Jones.

"Last night, I got a three-page text from my good friend Lou Holtz, who must have watched the inaugural and then all that blabber on TV…: 'I'm done, finished, the country's over with -- we're not doing this again!' Now, I had already had this conversation with Lou about nine or ten days after the election. He came in to speak to our 34 new Members. And before he went over to talk to them, he came over to my office, and he was moaning and groaning. I said, 'Lou, would you stop it? We're Americans, we'll figure this out!' And I had to spend 15 minutes giving Lou Holtz a pep talk! I had to do it again last night!"

WHOA WHOA WHOA wait just a minute ... Lou Holtz texts?
