On Bruce Allen’s birthday, he went to see the new Broadway play LOMBARDI along with a group that included Daniel Snyder, Sam Huff, and Sonny Jurgensen. When I asked Allen about the evening, he said that he loved the show but recommended that I talk to Jurgensen if I wanted more details.
Which makes sense, I suppose. It’s not everyone on the planet who can say they saw a Broadway show about the guy they posed with for a Sports Illustrated cover — an observation that Jurgensen himself was quick to make. “It was very special for me to see a play where you actually knew the person,” Jurgensen told me today. “You knew him.
