(Newser) – The upcoming movie starring Robert De Niro as Vince Lombardi will undoubtedly be the “greatest sports movie ever,” Julian Sancton writes. The famed Green Bay Packers coach was an inexhaustible source of quotable remarks, and a top-notch sports flick must have at least one memorable line, he writes in Vanity Fair. If Lombardi's wisdom somehow fails to do the trick, the film still has De Niro, star of the best sports movie ever, Raging Bull. Some Lombardi quotes:

  • “If it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?”
  • “Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.”
  • “Show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser.”
  • “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.”
