BBAO: The life of Vince Lombardi's house

By Kevin Seifert
ESPN.com

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Normally I like to provide a snippet of any ESPN.com feature I bring to your attention. But Wright Thompson's profile of, yes, a very special house can't be excerpted. It's something you need to read in full, a moving tome to Vince Lombardi and the home his family lived in during his time in Green Bay -- one he sold in 1969 and is still visited by devoted followers to this day.

Members of the family who bought the house from Lombardi still live there. John Madden once offered to buy it.

Thompson has a rare way with words, and you'll feel the full range of emotions when you read it. You've got time. We still have almost four full days until Super Bowl XLV.
