In the early 60’s, Vince Lombardi, just after losing a Superbowl and on the eve of a new season, rallied his team in the locker room one day and mounted the bench for a speech. He reviewed last year’s loss, then began to talk about the plans for a return trip to he great game and how they would accomplish it. “We’re going back to basics,” he said. And with that he held up a football, and said slowly and deliberately, “Gentlemen, this is a football.”

Coach Lombardi knew what too many of us try and dismiss – the way to stay on the winning team is to stick with the basics.
