The life of Vince Lombardi - one of the Seven Blocks of Granite at Fordham, the coaching saint, the mahatma of Green Bay - is the subject of a new play, and its producers plan to bring it to Broadway late next year. There will be no singing or dancing, no crooning Lombardi, no "Damn Packers." "It's 40 years since he last coached and that's part of the reason we're doing this," said Eric Simonson, who is adapting the play from "When Pride Still Mattered," David Maraniss's 1999 biography of Lombardi. "His name is on the Super Bowl trophy. But who is the guy? There's something about his character that reflects America."
