2009 Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame inductions

Had the opportunity to cover the 2009 inductions for the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. On the way in I saw something you don't see everyday: three Vince Lombardi trophies guarded by Marines... shot it from the escalator.

I'm not a lifelong Packers fan, nor am I a huge NFL guy (I prefer college and preps). I'm an Ohio transplant who is, by default of living in Wisconsin, happily a Packers fan. So I'm not up to snuff with the trivia. Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong: I'm assuming that the three trophies represent the Packers' three Super Bowl victories: 1966, 1967, and 1996. But, to be nit-picky... from what I've read, prior to 1970 it was technically the World Championship Game Trophy.
