My Hero is Gone

Bart Starr has left this world.

In the famous song, Mrs. Robinson, Paul Simon sang, "Where have you gone, Joe Dimaggio, the nation turns it's lonely eyes to you." Dimaggio took it the wrong way until one day he and Simon bumped into each other in a restaurant. Dimaggio asked Simon, "Why did you write that - I'm still here, everyone knows I'm here?" Simon had to explain that the famous line was just lamenting where all the great heroes had gone.

If I can be self-indulgent for a bit, Bart Starr was the one and only great hero in my life.
