With the 2011 NFL Draft winding down, the league is still looking for fun ways to spice up the viewing experience. In the sixth round, Dan Lauria was trotted out to the podium to announce the Green Bay Packers pick, dressed as Vince Lombardi, the character he plays in the Lombardi Broadway play. If Lauria looks familiar, other than the resemblance to the legendary coach, he should: He played the dad on The Wonder Years.â†µ
If nothing else, it was a cool moment to break the monotony of the late-rounds. And, hey, at least it beat the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots trading picks just for funsies.
