My favorite quotes always seem to come from sports Coaches – my absolute favorites coming from Vince Lombardi.
Noted as one of the best NFL Coaches of all time (NY Giants, Green Bay Packers, and Washington Redskins) Lombardi holds a career record of 105-35-6, including the very first (and second!) Superbowl with a win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
This week I put together a list of my Top Ten favorite Vince Lombardi quotes. Some of these you may recognize, but I hope that all of them speak to you.
I would love to hear your favorites in the comments!
