Happy # 83 Bart Starr


Our family landed in "Packer crazy" Wisconsin in the fall of 1964.

My brother and I had never seen a football game. We were raised playing and thinking baseball 24/7.

However, it didn't take us long to fall in love with the Packers and the game of football.

My first football hero was Bart Starr, the legendary Packers' QB:

"5x NFL champion (1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967)

2x
Super Bowl champion (I, II)
2x
1966
1966


In fact, I loved Starr so much that I always wore # 15 on every sports jersey. It's still my favorite number today!

Greatest game? Probably the so called "Ice Bowl".

Starr led the Packers down the field in amazing fashion.

It was "drive 101", a textbook drive that stands out years later.

A few years ago, I rented a VHS and watched this game again.

I love the drive even more now.

Starr retired years ago. I see him once in a while on TV commercials or ESPN classic shows.

Bart Starr, my all time favorite NFL player and Super Bowl MVP!

Is Starr the greatest "money" QB ever? I think so!

With all due respect to Unitas, Namath, Staubach, Bradshaw, Montana, Aikman, Young, Brady and even Favre, I will always pick Starr to start my big game.
