Folks, in the words of Sheepshead Bay’s native son and Hall of Fame football coach, Vince Lombardi, “If you don’t think you’re a winner, you don’t belong here.”
Well, we think you’re a winner, and we’re out to prove it. We’re offering Sheepshead Bites readers the chance to go see Lombardi free of charge. That’s right, we’ve got two free tickets to go see the critically-acclaimed Broadway play Lombardi at Circle in the Square on almost any day from now through mid-June.
All we’re asking of you is to sign up to our newsletter (details below). Pretty simple, huh? But you need to hurry. You need to complete sign up by Sunday, May 7, 2011 at 11:59 p.m., and we’ll be picking the lucky winner randomly from the pool of e-mail subscribers.

Sport produces great human drama and there is no greater sports icon to bring to theatrical life than coach Vince Lombardi, one of the most inspirational and quotable personalities of all time. Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years) and two-time Emmy Award winner Judith Light head the cast of Lombardi, a new American play by Academy Award winner and Steppenwolf Theatre Company member Eric Simonson. Though football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, few know the real story of Lombardi the man—his inspirations, his passions and ability to drive people to achieve what they never thought possible. Directed by Tony nominee Thomas Kail (In the Heights), Lombardi is based on the best-selling biography When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss. Lombardi is playing at Circle in the Square, whose lobby has been transformed into a museum-quality installation featuring Vince Lombardi and Green Bay Packer memorabilia.
What’s the catch?
Nothing! We were looking to let people know about our great newsletter. The Lombardi producers were looking to get Sheepshead Bay residents to check out this critically-acclaimed show based on one of our neighbors. So teaming up for those two goals was our only intention.
We will not sell or distribute your e-mail address under any circumstances. We will not spam you. That’s our promise.
There are some blackout dates that apply to the Lombardi tickets. Tickets are transferable, but resale is strictly prohibited by law.
Sign up now! Good luck!
