Love NY Post Sports But This Makes No Sense

    Everyday this week they have been publishing a story "In the words of Vince Lombardi" Here is an example:


    Here is explanation that goes with each:

    "Dan Lauria is currently playing the role of Vince Lombardi in "Lombardi" at Circle in the Square Theater. The Post is providing a daily insight from "Coach" leading up to the Super Bowl. For more on Lombardi, visit lombardibroadway.com"

    That's a little...odd. But then I remembered the Post ran battlefield advice columns from George C. Scott writing as Patton during the runup to the first Gulf War.

    Wonder what Mushnick thinks about this. Although as long as there aren't too many graphics on the page, he's probably okay with it.

    From explanation I am not clear if the words are from Dan Luria or Lombardi.

    thinking it might be an ad in disguise.

    And if it is Lauria it's obviously not actually Dan coming up with the words so it's even more out there. It could be David Maraniss writing words for Dan Lauria to say in the voice of Vince Lombardi's ghost, which then get transcribed by an intern at the Post.

    Rupert Murdoch strikes another blow for journalistic worthlessness.
