Sinatra's Birthday

He's really good, that Frank.

Little-known fact:

When Vince Lombardi was a high-school football coach in New Jersey, the team would play on Friday nights. After the games, Vince would take Marie to a small restaurant/roadhouse for a late dinner.

They enjoyed the singing of a scrawny young man at that roadhouse, and often (feeling sorry for him) would buy him a dinner, too...

Thus began a lifelong friendship between Lombardi and Sinatra.

More at PowerLine including Frank's 1958 recording of "One More for the Road."

Thanks for sharing the Lombardi-Sinatra connection. I'd never heard that before.
