Happy hundredth, Coach Lombardi

Today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Vince Lombardi.

I take this occasion to show off a custom card I made some years ago as part of my series of 1955 Topps All-American style college cards.

When Lombardi was shepherding the Green Bay Packers from NFL doormats to dynasty, I didn't appreciate the man or his mission. At that time he represented all that I loathed about the "establishment."

I highly recommend the TV special Lombardi's Legacy that is replaying tonight on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. (Eastern).
