Bart Starr and his wife, Cherry, were in western Wisconsin last month to speak at Boy Scout fundraiser dinners. Starr, who turned 80 years old in January, reflected on his Pro Football Hall of Fame career and life with Packer Plus.


Love this quote. Made me smile.

A. My father, who was a master sergeant and the toughest man I've even known. Next to him, Coach Lombardi was a piece of cake.

Still the Greatest!!!!!!

I don't know if that would have happened,

but The front office did him no favor by pulling off the now infamous "John Hadle trade", which pretty much handcuffed Bart for the 1st 3 years in the draft.

There was no Free Agency back then, so Bart had to live with no 1st rnd picks for 2 years and 2nd rnd picks I think for 3 years.

He did what he could.

Great offense, porous defense.

Loved Mad Dog Douglas though.

Such a remarkably humble man for someone who accomplished so much. Legend.

We can disagree whether he's the greatest Packer quarterback ever. (He was, I'm right, and anyone who disagrees with me as wrong.)

And he certainly was hired as head coach way before he was ready.

But his inherent greatness, his inherent goodness, that is unquestioned.

Even given his advanced age, I'd vote for him for President in a heartbeat.

I've seen a number of famous and "important" people in my life. But none of them stands out in my mind like Bart Starr does. As long as I live I'll never forget the time I walked with Starr as he accompanied a young man in a wheelchair behind the stands at what was then Memorial Stadium at the U of Minnesota after a game in which he got battered and bruised by Eller and company.

Never.

That day, and in his life, he showed himself not just a football player with Hall of Fame credentials. He showed himself a man. And not just a man, but a man of unimpeachable character. A man of rightness.

Amongst the noisy who proclaim their leadership skills at every turn, there are those quiet mean and women who are true leaders. Bart Starr is such a man.

There are giants among us worthy of extra respect and attention. Bart Starr is one of them.

Nonstopdrivel (2h) : Ant teh toh koonm po (roughly)
Zero2Cool (2h) : well if it's not t hat hard to say, then ...
