John Pinero considers playing Vince Lombardi, the role of a lifetime. John’s one-man play, “Vince, The Life & Times Of Vince Lombardi”, premiered December 6, 1996 at the Two Roads Theatre in Studio City CA. Mike Downey of the Los Angeles Times gave it a glowing review. The play later debuted in several Wisconsin cities and across the nation. He was the keynote speaker at the 2002 induction ceremonies at The Pro Football Hall Of Fame and in 2001, and The Green Bay Packer Hall Of Fame in 2002. Even ABC Television featured John in the 2006 pre-game Superbowl show.

The success of the play ignited the birth of the motivational presentation portraying Vince Lombardi. Since he has created the motivational production, he has been a presenter for many small and large corporations and groups across the nation, including Honda Corporation, Sysco Foods, Ray-O-Vac, Nissan, to name a few.

John is a veteran actor that has appeared in film, (Fifty Grand, Pump Up The Volume, Voices, King Of The Gypsies); television, (Hunter, L.A. Law, Reasonable Doubts, Days Of Our Lives); many commercials and over a 100 stage productions across the nation. He was one of the founders of Theatre XII in New York and was co-founder of The Eastside Westside Ensemble, in Los Angeles.

A Brooklyn Native like Vince himself, he is an avid Green Bay Packer and New York Yankees fan.

You are never beaten, time just runs out on you. Fatigue makes cowards of us all. Mental toughness is essential to success. Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing. I don't give a damn about statistics as long as we win. If you don't think you're a winner, you don't belong here. Confidence is contagious, so is lack of confidence. The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. The real glory is being knocked to your knees, then coming back. Competition builds stamina, character and aggressiveness. We will play every game to the hilt, with every ounce of fiber in our bodies. Practice does not make perfect, perfect practice, makes perfect. The quality of life is a full measure of your personal commitment to excellence and victory. Leadership is not a quality, but rather a blend of qualities, and each man must develop his own blend to be successful. Success rests not only on ability, but upon commitment, loyalty and pride. Some of us will do our job well, some of us will not, but we will be judged by one thing, the results. If you never settle for anything but your best, you'll be surprised what you can accomplish. Leaders are made, not born, and they are made like everything else is made. They are made by hard effort. Character is the result of two things, mental attitude and the way we spend our time. The will is character in action. The successful man is honest with himself. Our greatest glory is not in falling, but in rising every time we fall. Mental toughness is essential to success. Somewhere deep down there is a burning desire to excel, and if you believe that, then pack your bags and get the hell out of here. Dancing is a contact sport, football is a hitting sport. Leadership should extend further than your company. You can't always be first, but you have to believe you should have been. You are never beaten, time just runs out on you.
