Lombardi’s Super Bowl II Pre-Game Speech
It was short and sweet, but Vince Lombardi’s Super Bowl II pre-game speech was to the point and he probably didn’t have to say much to the 1967-68 Green Bay Packers anyway.
The team finished 9-4-1 that season and after beating the Dallas Cowboys in the Ice Bowl, would go on to handle the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl II, winning 33-14. It was Lombardi’s last game as Packers coach.
The speech is from a Jerry Kramer audio recording and aired yesterday on ESPN’s NFL Countdown.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
