Super Bowl Sunday with Vince Lombardi

by Chad Campbell, senior producer

It’s the Green Bay Packers against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV for the right to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy. It would be a little sweeter if the Packers could return that particular trophy to Green Bay since Lombardi was the iconic coach on the sidelines of Lambeau Field from 1959-1967 leading the Packers to five league championships, including the first two Super Bowls ever played. David Maraniss wrote a biography of Lombardi called When Pride Still Mattered. Then he helped transform the story into a Broadway play called Lombardi, which is running in New York’s Circle in the Square Theater. The play stars Dan Lauria as Vince Lombardi and Judith Light as his wife Marie.
