Vince Lombardi

Legendary pro football coach Vince Lombardi was born on this day in 1913.  The Super Bowl Trophy is named after Lombardi, who coached the Packers to the first two Super Bowl titles and to three NFL titles before that. Despite popular belief, Lombardi never said, “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.”  However, he did say, “Winning isn’t everything, but making the effort to win is.”  There is a subtle but very important difference.
