STAGE TUBE: Frank Gifford Visits LOMBARDI

NFL Hall of Fame halfback and celebrated sportscaster Frank Gifford visited the cast of LOMBARDI backstage after seeing the show with Kathie Lee and her Today Show co-host Hoda Kotb.

Lombardi, a new American play from Academy Award-winning playwright Eric Simonson, is based on the best-selling Vince Lombardi biography "When Pride Still Mattered", by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss.

Sport produces great human drama and there is no greater sports icon to bring to theatrical life than a man recognized not only as one of the greatest coaches of all time, but one of the most compelling and oft-quoted individuals in American pop culture in the 20th century. Though football's Super Bowl trophy is named for him, so few know the real story of Vince Lombardi the man - his inspiration, his passion, and ability to drive people to achieve what they never thought possible. In a time when people continue to look for shortcuts to success, his story demonstrates that hard work, discipline, respect and time are the crucial elements to victory.
