“THIS IS A FOOTBALL.”
Legendary football coach Vince Lombardi was famous for his approach to winning games. He once held a football in his hand in a locker room at half-time as he explained the fundamentals of the game to professional, veteran players who were losing a game; everything from why a football is made
the way it is, to why the field is marked the way it is, to how it’s played, how it’s scored the way it is. Fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals. Lombardi believed that understanding, remembering and adhering to fundamentals makes the difference between winning and losing. He was right.
