Roger Staubach to perfect Lombardi handoff
“I get to hand the Lombardi Trophy to I guess it’s [Terry] Bradshaw and he hands it to, well, I don’t know who I hand it to,” Staubach said. “All I know is I’ve got a two-hour practice Saturday morning to do that. And I think it’s going to take me less than two hours to figure that out. Boy that NFL is right on it.”
Over the last few years the NFL has had Hall of Famers carry the trophy to the podium through a throng of players, who paw at it as it is being delivered. It is one of the better moments the NFL has added to the Super Bowl.
For Staubach, handing it to the Steelers might be a little difficult, considering the losses in Super Bowls X and XIII, but the Cowboys’ Hall of Famer turned Chairman of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee Chairman has a respect for the organization.
“You know we did beat the Steelers,” Staubach said. “My guy Troy Aikman beat them. Why don’t we talk about that more?”
