STONEHENGE, England -- Clews Everard has the toughest job in British tourism.She is the general manager of Stonehenge, the prehistoric circle of stones that lures archaeologists, protesters, Druids, New Age travelers, film crews and 750,000 tourists annually to the green, wind-swept Salisbury Plain.At Stonehenge, people want to celebrate marriages, have their loved one's ashes spread, pray, and play music at sunrise. There was even a group of protesters who showed up in May and rappelled off the stones.

Maybe it's because I grew up in Wisconsin watching Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers on all those snowy Sundays. But watching a great NFL game played in the snow is as good a TV experience as there is in my book. And I can't think of many NFL TV moments I've experienced that can compare with the final minutes of the Ravens 29-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday. Five touchdowns in the last two minutes and five seconds - are you kidding? You can hardly blame Fox play-by-play announcer Chris Myers for losing track and saying there were only four touchdowns scored in that crazed, final stretch.

For five years, he played football for the Green Bay Packers and Vince Lombardi, the quintessential tough coach. So how can Tom Brown now run a youth sports camp in Salisbury that's so relaxed the kids fill out the lineups, everyone gets to play and winning doesn't matter? It makes sense to Brown, 72, a two-sport star at Maryland 50 years ago. "Vince was a teacher first," he said. "He taught us about football and about life. He told us, in retirement, to find our niche. I looked it up in the dictionary and it said a niche is something you're good at and that you like doing.

Vince Lombardi was the original. The coach. The martinet. The genius. The manipulator. The winner. The star.You can take your Don Shulas and Bill Walshes and Tom Landrys and Chuck Nolls and none of them can match Lombardi. Wins and losses don't matter here. Super Bowls don't figure in this equation. Lombardi was bigger than the game of football, period.Politicians courted him. Businessmen quoted him. Sociologists loathed him.When the 25th Super Bowl is held today in Tampa, Fla., the winning team will be awarded a sterling silver trophy named after Vincent T. Lombardi.

UNTIL SUNDAY, the words Art Modell and the Vince Lombardi Trophy had not exactly fit together like pieces in the perfect joint. The trophy goes to the Super Bowl winner. Mr. Modell's team, neither the original Cleveland Browns nor its Baltimore Ravens incarnation, had been to a Super Bowl, much less won one. It wasn't so much the trophy that seemed incongruent in the same sentence with the Ravens owner. It was the Lombardi name. In 40 years in the NFL, Mr. Modell had earned a reputation as what Paul Brown, the first and legendary Browns coach, called a "playing owner."

THIS was not a great year for guys. Once again, our gende put up all the major candidates for president and suffered all the contempt and derision -- any year you have Ross Perot, Dan Quayle and George Bush honking in public, manhood's negatives are bound to rise -- whereas women, choosing to hang on the sidelines and cluck, managed to seem high-minded and discriminated against at the same time, a neat trick.Now that the best man has won and is talking in whole sentences and saying dignified things, some of us hope that the gender will recover.

Poor Roger Goodell. No one promised him a rose garden, certainly not Paul Tagliabue, but he expected to at least have some idea where the trouble might come from. When Goodell was named as just the fourth NFL commissioner in six decades in August 2006, he certainly anticipated some wayward lads who now and then liked to have a little too much fun in saloons and on party boats. Sure, there were always going to be the sad cases of DUIs, weapons violations and the occasional drug bust. And there would always be a few front offices that would test him with some razzle-dazzle circumvention of the salary cap. But for the love of Vince Lombardi - Brett Favre?

NEW ORLEANS -- From the first day of training camp, there was only one acceptable outcome this season for the Green Bay Packers.Last night, the Packers embraced their destiny with a 35-21 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI before a Louisiana Superdome crowd of 72,301.The most complete team in the NFL used all its weapons -- from the quick-strike passing game of Brett Favre to the dynamic return game of Desmond Howard to the big-play defense led by Reggie White -- to extend the NFC's winning streak in the Super Bowl to 13 games.

This was a city pouring out its heart to its football team, a city with a perennial chip on its shoulder telling the world how proud it was of what the Ravens accomplished in one of the greatest playoff runs in NFL history. This was the biggest and loudest and most boisterous victory parade you've ever seen, a two-hour party through downtown Baltimore. It ended the way they'd script it in Hollywood, with the great Ray Lewis holding up the silver Vince Lombardi Trophy in front of a packed house at M&T Bank Stadium, doing that crazy "Squirrel" dance one last time and ending his glorious "last ride" after 17 seasons in a Ravens uniform.

When the phone call came, asking if he would present the silver trophy at the Super Bowl in February, Raymond Berry took it for a prank. "You've got to be kidding," he told the caller. "Is this a joke?" Frank Supowitz, the NFL's senior vice president of events, assured Berry that the offer was legit. The league wanted the Baltimore Colts Hall of Fame receiver to take part in the post-game ceremonies, with the world watching, at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis on Feb. 5. Berry said yes and hung up, agog.
