    Yeah...I saw it when it was on TV. I don't remember much because I was probably picturing McHale's Navy every time he opened his mouth. ;)

    Odd...as I watched the clip of Lombardi's first win, I swear to god I saw Gale Sayers running for the Bears and Zeke Bratkowski already with the Pack in 1959. Haha... oh well, it got the point across I suppose.

    I think Ernie even looks a bit like Vince.
    Or is that just me?

    I remember watching it on TV here in Chicago when it was first shown: Friday, December 14, 1973.

    The Lombardi statue outside lambeau looks more like Borgnine than Lombardi. Maybe the sculptor saw the movie and thought Lombardi was playing himself.
