Starr loved box

An 81-year-old Texas woman has pleaded guilty to trying to extort $2 million from Packer’s legend Bart Starr. Ruby Y. Young of Kerrville pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court and received a probated sentence and agreed not to have any contact with Starr or his family. Young was accused of mailing letters to the 73-year-old Starr last year with the intent to extort money under "a threat to injure the reputation" of the Hall of Fame quarterback. . The letters threatened to reveal an alleged relationship they had nearly 50 years ago.

Unless it is a World War, no one cares what happened 50 years ago, especially if it’s a story about an athlete’s sex-capade. Athletes have been romping with groupies since the time of Homo Erectus. And no, I’m not referring to Piazza’s time with the Mets.
