View Full Version : "Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing."

Vince Lombardi said that. Probably the most profound thing ever said about sports in general. (I will entertain other candidates for 'sports-phrase-of-the-universe'. :))

He was, of course, talking about PLAYING sports, not being a spectator. Also, Lombardi didn't consider apparent-victory-by-cheating a form of 'winning', so we can put that aside.

"Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing."

Pretty extreme philosophy, in a way.

This is also attributed to Lombardi--"The will to win is important, but the will to prepare to win is essential"
