With our luck this season, even the legends are falling. Face. Palm.

I joke because it sounds like he is fine.

Quote:
According to Fischer, at the conclusion of the speech, the 78-year-old Starr paused silently for "about 15 or 20 seconds" and then collapsed on the stage. Fischer said Starr sat up within minutes and was briefly evaluated by emergency medical personnel.

"At the very end, you could see the appearance was awkward," Fischer said. "When he collapsed, there was an audible gasp in the crowd. People came forward to help him."

Fischer said Starr was conscious, speaking coherently and gave the indication he was feeling OK. He then left the convention center with his wife, Cherry, in a private limousine bound for the Dane County Regional Airport, where the two flew back home to Alabama.

"Cherry informs us that he is doing just great," Fischer said. "He's feeling fine."

Starr, who lives in Birmingham, Ala., played for the Packers from 1956-71 and led the team to five National Football League championships and two Super Bowls. He was the MVP in Super Bowls I and II and a four-time Pro Bowl selection in 1960, 1961, 1962 and 1966. He also served as Green Bay's head coach from 1975-83.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

He is getting up there in age. I have been wondering how his health was. I noticed he was not at the 2nd home game. (He almost always is there with many of the other Packer Alumni.) Glad to see this was not the end for him.

I heard that he was reliving a recent nightmare he has been having, where he plays QB for the Vikings instead of the Packers.
That would be enough to make anyone collapse.
