Quarterback Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers
Very few 17th round draft picks have had as successful careers in the NFL as Bart Starr, who was selected in that round of the 1956 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. Starr played quarterback for the Packers for 16 seasons, leading Vince Lombardi’s team to titles in 1961 and 1962 and to victories in the first two Super Bowls. Bart Starr was named the MVP of both of those Super Bowls and was also the NFL’s MVP for the 1966 season. Starr was known as a clutch performer, going 9-1 in the postseason and possessing the 2nd highest postseason passer rating of all-time (behind only fellow Packer Aaron Rodgers). He was a four time Pro Bowl Selection during his career which extended to 1971. Bart Starr was elected to Pro Football’s Hall of Fame in 1977 and has his uniform # 15 retired by the Packers.

John Lennon talking about the break up of the Beatles in 1970
The break-up of the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential musical groups in history, It has become almost as much of a legend as the band itself or the music they created while together. The Beatles were active from their formation in 1960 to the disintegration of the group in 1970. The break-up itself was a cumulative process throughout 1968 to 1970, marked by rumors of a split and ambiguous comments by the Beatles themselves regarding the future of the group. Although in September 1969 John Lennon privately informed the other Beatles that he was leaving the group, there was no public acknowledgement of the break-up until Paul McCartney announced on 10 April 1970 he was leaving the Beatles.
