Today is the start of the NCAA Tournament (well technically the start of the second round, but you know what I mean).
It is a day which sports enthusiasts circle on their calendars the minute the college basketball schedule is released, when anything goes and March Madness consumes fans everywhere.
Unfortunately for Green Bay Packers fans, today has also been a slow news day in the world of their favorite team. After a week during which it seemed like there was news everyday, with the re-signing of BJ Raji and the signings of Julius Peppers and Letroy Guion, the start of March Madness is also the least madness seen out of Green Bay in some time.
The start of the NCAA Tournament is enough to satisfy the need for sports for some. But to others, who live and breathe football, it is a poor substitute for the green and gold of the Packers.
For that reason, Packers Talk Radio Network is here to help.
Dale H. Decker makes his return with another great Packers related video, this time featuring an all time great from the Lombardi Era-and beyond.
The focus of this video is the one and only Bart Starr.
A 17th round selection in 1956, Starr would go from a sometimes starter before Vince Lombardi’s arrival to a five time world champion, two time Super Bowl champion, two time Super Bowl MVP during his playing career.
He would later return to Green Bay as their Head Coach from 1975-83, compiling a 52-76-3 record during his nine years leading the team.
Starr had his number 15 retired by the Packers in 1973, and was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.
Bart Starr has become one of the most revered figures in Packers history, epitomizing class and a winning attitude. For these reason, he is a living legend.
Please sit back and enjoy this tribute to a Packer legend: “Bart Starr-A Starr is Born”
