Light it up, Vince! I’m about to! Light it up, Vince! Cuz that’s what I was born to do!

Who else could combine Kris Kross lyrics and Vince Lombardi?

Nobody!

I found this yesterday. It my new favorite Vince Lombardi photo.

Look at that dude. He doesn’t give a shit. He’ll light up where he damn well pleases.

Why?

Because he’s Vincent Fucking Lombardi, Badass.

    I can’t believe you packer experts didn’t know about his smoking habit…he hid it sometimes..but could never kick it…just like using “colorful” language…

    Yea, no big surprise that Vince liked to smoke, known for quite awhile. It just isnt shown much I agree. Was much more popular back then as well, its harm wasn’t documented quite yet.

    Probably bummed one off Phil Bengston.
    Bengston chained smoked on the sidelines.

    Funniest time i saw an athlete smoke was game 7 of the world series. Ted Simmons lit one up in the Brewer dugout in the ninth inning. Right before St Louis closed them out.

  4. Any old time Packers fan knows Vince was a smoker, and often along the sidelines. It was common. It was a different era. I watched Ron Kramer and Paul Hornung lighting up after a game against the Bears.
