So long, and thanks for the thrills.
I've been lucky in my lifetime to have 2 heroes play for the Packers. As a kid...it was Bart Starr, working the precise strategy of Lombardi with combination short laser passes and breakaway bombs, plus one final surge on a frozen field that a certain little boy played out in his winter backyard again and again with his big brothers.
As an adult (posing as a kid)...it was Favre, with his gunslinging arm, all those fourth quarter comebacks, and that patented little-boy enthusiasm right up to the last.
I am grateful for both thrills.
