2. RIP

 

RIP Bart Starr. I grew up watching him demolish better teams such as Y. A. Tittle’s NY Giants.

I thought Roger Staubach was better and more exciting a QB, but Starr was a better strategist. If he didn’t kill you with his play calling, you had to face Jimmy Taylor punching a hole in the middle, Paul Horning running wide, or worse, throwing an option pass. Packers were an awesome team!

10. Sure seems that way.

He wasn't just a man, he was an institution.

6. My first jersey was

No. 15! We lived in WI for a year when I was 12. If I'm correct, the Packers won the 1st 3 of 4 Super Bowls?

Can this be done without googling?

7. Didn't Google. I think it was an NFL Championship followed by two Super Bowls. Maybe.

8. Many NFL championships

Then came what would be known as Super Bowl I followed by SB II.

Bart and Hank Aaron. Life was good in Wisconsin in the early and mid 60s.

Thank you Bart! They don't get any better.

I wish today's athletes would emulate you.

9. Indeed! Mom was a big Hornung fan because she loved Notre Dame. We always watched the Packers back

then, even though we lived in Florida where they were not televised as much at the time.
I remember having a lot of the old braves cards from the late 50's - early 60's. Warren Spahn was a favorite and of course "Hammerin Hank."
