Touchdown Jesusees

According to THIS STORY about the state of Ohio's Touchdown Jesus, he's called that because:

The sculpture, 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way his arms were raised, as though reaching out to catch a football.

Now I always associate "Touchdown Jesus" with the mural of Jesus SIGNALING a touchdown at Notre Dame.

Perhaps I'm mistaken, and as the article states, this is the technique of which Notre Dame's receivers have been attempting "to reach out and catch a football".

Brian Kelly, your job just got a lot easier. Offensive woes, solved.
