NFL Season Starts Tonight
Are you ready for some football? Well we are at Big Frog 104, and tonight, the NFL regular season gets underway with The Green Bay Packers hosting the New Orleans Saints. The game gets underway at 8:30 p.m on NBC TV.
With the backdrop of historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, you can’t help but think about legenday Packers coach, the late Vince Lombardi (the man they named the Super Bowl Trophy after).
Vince Lombardi has been quoted and misquoted for over 40 years, so here are a few real quotes from the coach, courtesy of the BrainyQuote website:
“A school without football is in danger of deteriorating into a medieval study hall.”
“Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate.”
“Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.”
“Dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.”
“Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.”
“If it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?”
“If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm.”
