the ancient mariner
After a cold winter’s practice in Green bay Wisc. Lombardi got home late and got into bed with his wife. She said—Oh God your feet are cold
He replied—when we are in bed you can call me Vince.
So—did he play God in some movie ?
Are you talking about the sales training film that he made in 1968, called “Second Effort”?
The Vince Lombardi service area on the NJ Turnpike?
I think I had that game when I was a kid. But that’s not what I had in mind.
Vince was involved in a community development company, probably as a figurehead, but I have found no record of it in his online biographies. I possess physical proof of this association.
He played himself in Paper Lion.

Joe Rogo—-was Vince a Matinee Idle or a cowboy? I
don’t remember him in The Quiet Man. A tough one.
Was he was an ice-man in Brook-a-lean !!!!
Maybe a substitute Pizza Pie flipper in New Haven. Have to check with the Conn maven—Michael Hoffman on that one.
He sure could have taught a few classes in college—he was a very smart guy, and a brilliant motivator—-could be a motivational speaker and make a few bucks on the side.
Are you talking about his acting career?
Name a company, other than Green Bay Packers, Inc., that Vincent T. Lombardi worked for in 1968?
There was a board game about football called Vince Lombardi’s Game. I forget who made it. Is that what you’re looking for?
I can barely remeber when Lombardi took over the Redskins for a year.
Sorry folks, I lost track of this thread. Vincent was a part of Public Facilities Associates, Inc. My father received a telegram from him that I recently found in a box.

No, Lombardi was not a lawyer, although http://www.funtrivia.com/en/subtopics/Vince-Lombardi-168420.html he claimed to be an attorney.
How many credits did Vince earn in law school? One semester’s worth. Maraniss found that Lombardi embellished his credentials in the biography that he provided to teams during his NFL coaching career. He claimed to have earned a law degree from Fordham, but had actually gone to night law school for two years, earning one semester of credits, before dropping out due to poor grades and his own disinterest.
Didn’t he work for Nixon’s election team?
edit: Nope, he was a Democrat.
Good one, but the movie is not what I had in mind. He was part of a business venture.
