There have been several documentaries on the life of Coach Vince Lombardi - and this one is as good, if not better than any made. My wife, who knew of the name but little of the man - other than hearing me praise him as the standard by which other coaches are judged - even she thoroughly enjoyed this program.
Perhaps compared to previous documentaries which focused on old football tales between the coach and his players, this presentation revealed the personal man, his inner struggles and everything his family had to endure. After watching this it's easy to see why so many people through various walks of life have often referred to famous quotes of Lombardi's. As he put it, the lessons of football could easily be applied as lessons for life.
I highly recommend the entire family watching this. You will learn why Lombardi has become an icon bigger than life. I promise you won't be disappointed.
