According to former Green Bay Packer great, Paul Hourning, there were two "times" when playing for coach Vince Lombardi.

Regular time versus "Lombardi Time."

Regular time was what most people followed.

Lombardi Time was always 15 minutes earlier.

And it was adhered to by winners.

If a Packer meeting was scheduled to begin at 8:00am, astute players knew to arrive and be ready to go at 7:45am.

Every time.
