An excerpt from the last speech made by Wisconsin's beloved, Vince Lombardi:
"I believe that man's greatest hour, in fact -- his greatest fulfillment, his finest fulfillment, is that moment when he has worked his heart out for a good cause and lies exhausted but victorious on the field of battle -- whenever -- wherever that field of battle may be -- in your business, in my business, wherever.
Success in life is a matter not so much of talent and not so much of opportunity but rather of concentration and perseverance. The man who succeeds above his fellow man is the man who early in life clearly decides his objective and towards that objective he directs all of his powers."
As the head coach of Wisconsin's storied football franchise, the Green Bay Packers, Lombardi led his team to multiple championships in the 1960's. Forty years after his passing, his team's winning tradition continued with the Packers successfully battling for the title of Super Bowl XLV Champions (Go Cowboys in 2012! lol).
