Just saw that Bart Starr has died at the age of 85. What a humble, classy guy.

My Packer-owner husband is sad today. RIP, Mr. Starr.

    Classy gentleman indeed. One of the tweets I saw today re his passing noted that back in the day his family had sent Mr. Starr a Christmas card. He responded with an autographed photo and handwritten note. I wish that still happened today.

    Bart Starr -- a great football player and an even better person! Wishing his family and friends peace.

    So admired by many, many athletes and warm heartedly admired by those fortunate to wear a Packers uniform.

    A really NICE guy. It's terrible he lost a son to drug addiction.

    RIP Bart.
