Legendary Bart Starr, Raptors Defeat Bucks And Face KD-Less Warriors, Infamous Bill Buckner


The legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback and coach, Bart Starr, passed away over the weekend at the age of 85. Starr led the Packers to three straight championships (the only quarterback in NFL history to do so) and earned MVP honors at the first two Super Bowls. He also received the NFL’s most valuable player award in 1966. After retiring as a quarterback in 1971, he became Green Bay’s head coach a year later and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.


The Toronto Raptors defeated the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night and will face the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. The Raptors host game 1 of the best of seven series on Thursday night. Golden State’s Kevin Durant is not scheduled to play in game 1, and Center DeMarcus Cousins has been listed as questionable.


The infamous Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner died at the age of 69 after battling Lewy Body Dementia. Buckner played for five different Major League Baseball teams over the course of 22 years, although he is most remembered for messing up a play (as a member of the Boston Red Sox) in the 10th inning of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series against the New York Mets. His error allowed the winning run to score. The Mets then went on to win Game 7, and Buckner had to endure years of death threats and public humiliation. Eighteen years later when the Red Sox finally won the World Series, fans stopped harassing him. And, when the Red Sox won again in 2007, Buckner even threw out the first pitch the next season and received a four-minute standing ovation.
