I heard once that Vince Lombardi gave a speech once that was basically a "basics of the basics" speech to his players. He started off with "Men, this is a football."
Does anyone know if there's a text to this speech anywhere? Apparently, he was really frustrated at a practice one day, and gathered all his players around, and said something like, "Men, this is a football. This (pointing at the field) is a football field. These (pointing at yard markers) are the yard markers. I'm the coach. You're the players."
I'm pretty sure there's more to it than that. If anyone knows where I can get more of this speech I'd love to know.
Men, this is a football...
