ESPN The Magazine: "Inside Bart Starr's Drive..."

Bart Starr, 81, continues to recover from multiple strokes and a heart attack he suffered last fall. Here, he is joined by his wife, Cherry, who continues to be the backbone of his recovery. The couple has been married for over 60 years. (Photograph by Gerry Melendez for ESPN)

ESPN has an incredibly emotional story about Bart Starr's declining health and his desire to be at Lambeau Field this Thanksgiving to see Brett Favre's number retired.

It's a touching story of a couple who have been together for 61 years, their challenges and their strength. I don't think I'll ever be able to hear "Unchained Melody" again without thinking of Bart.
