“Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.” –George S. Halas
I don't watch a lot of sports on Television. Admittedly, it gives me less to talk about at the gym with the other guys but there's always our ailments (that's talk for people over 50). Even so, I do love sports movies. Perhaps I love them because I get the backstory on the team, the players, and how they all made it through the trials together to win.
That's why I love this week's guest, Mike Lombardi, as we talk about his book, Gridiron Genius...I get the backstory on what makes a championship team (and Mike knows about championships). We talk about the value of hard work, how to bring the team together, and what separates the good from the great.
I know you'll get as much from Mike's experience as I did so ENJOY!
More on Mike...
