Always a Starr

By on 2.6.06 | 2:44PM

Let me associate myself with the earlier posts about Bart Starr. As it so happens, one of the several books I am reading right now is a biography of sorts about Bart Starr. It's called "When Leadership Mattered," or something like that. Anyway, it is great to see such a class act remembered and honored. Frankly, I wish Bart Starr had been open to what once were frequent entreaties for him to run for Senate from Alabama as a Republican. I think Starr is incorruptible, and he's clearly a very smart man with great values -- and a terrific leader. He is everything that is good about sports, and my hat is always off to him.
