Picture of the Day

Above is a great picture taken at the 1965 Pro Bowl of Johnny Unitas, Coach Don Shula , and Fran Tarkenton. I played high school football in 1965 at Greensboro Page.

The image comes from the photo collection of my facebook friend Fran Tarkenton. Fran is a very interesting guy. After a very successful Hall of Fame career at the Minnesota Vikings and a great college career at Georgia, Tarkenton became one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the history of the NFL. Fran has written a number of motivational books and has been a prominent speaker on the motivational speaker circuit. He founded and sold a software company, has hosted numerous TV infomercials, has written a novel, and he founded and still operates an annuity marketing firm, among many other projects. We are certainly not talking about a slow, former football player here. :)

Tarkenton and his wife make their home in the Buckhead community of Atlanta.

A great photo of three great football legends from a by-gone era.
