    Here is a link to a great Vince Lombardi page on NFL.com.
    http://www.nfl.com/boroughs#qs-anchor-qs-page-introduction

    At the bottom, there is a segment about the Vince Lombardi play called Lombardi on Broadway. Dan Lauria, who played the dad on Wonder Years, played Coach Lombardi. I have seen clips during games on t.v. and also advertisements on the NFL Network as well as clips on youtube. Has anyone seen this play? It looks really good.

    Thanx for the link and info.
    That was a really good interview with clips interspersed.
    They need to make a movie based on the play with Dan Lauria.

    You're welcome. I saw it on the NFL website and thought it was awesome. I would settle for a DVD of the Broadway play, but a movie would be even better.

    Ernest Borgnine did a great portrayal of Lombardi in a movie made some 30 years ago.

    I've seen clips of that and it was a TV movie.
    With H.Wood remaking everything, it's time for a Lombardi movie.

    I wonder how Vince Lombardi would feel about getting the Gatorade bath.
    Would players not dare do it to him or would he be a good sport about it?

    He would probably be a good sport. I saw clips of him joking around and being light hearted especially after winning.

    I dunno, man.
    Movie projects take a while from the concept of the idea to make one to when it hits theaters.
    And correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like they are just talking about it. Which means that it may not end up getting made after all.
    I'll feel better knowing that this movie will be seen when it starts showing on the screen. Silver or TV.
