Rockne's 'Win one for the Gipper' speech

Knute Rockne's "Win one for the Gipper" speechHalftime of Notre Dame's 12-6 win over Army, Nov. 10, 1928, at Yankee Stadium

From "Rockne of Notre Dame" by Ray Robinson:

Before he died, Gipp said to me, `I've got to go, Rock. It's all right. I'm not afraid. Sometimes, when things are going wrong, when the breaks are beating the boys, tell them to go out and win one for the Gipper. I don't know where I'll be then, Rock. But I'll know about it and I'll be happy.' "
