In honor of what would be Vince Lombardi's 100th birthday in the month of June, ESPN will air a special special titled Lombardi's Legacy commemorating the coach's legacy and accomplishments on Thursday June 6 at 8 p.m. CT.
According to an ESPN press release:
Berman will be joined in-studio by ESPN analyst and Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Ditka and former Green Bay Packers right guard Jerry Kramer, who played for Lombardi and helped lead the Packers to five NFL titles and wins in Super Bowls I and II. Hall of Fame Packers quarterback Bart Starr is also scheduled to be interviewed.
An NFL Films-produced feature within the show will offer rare in-game audio of Lombardi coaching.
