Brett & Bart

So long, and thanks for the thrills.

I've been lucky in my lifetime to have 2 heroes play for the Packers. As a 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) 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.
