@dbvickery@ClarkSchafer I got you on Favre! It'll be interesting to see how history treats him.. the star but flawed QB or the off the field joke of his last season (In time, I think it will be the former). I agree with you on Rodgers. When he's driving the team down the field, you have confidence he's going to do something great. When Brett drove it, especially a crunch time, I had great anticipation I'd see something amazing but tempered with a fear he'd make a stupid decision and tear my heart out and stomp on it! Being in Big 12 country... I did appreciate Vince and Colt in college! Brian, thanks for the fun discussion!

Brian - Not a bad list, but alitle heavy on the Longhorn slant. Being a life-long Packer fan, my list would be slanted NFL and former Green and Gold greats. It's interesting how we perceive things through our own personal prisms! That's what makes life great and can cause some passionate exchanges (Ever been at a game sitting next to a Bear's fan?) Keep the lists coming... by the way, Bart Starr and Brett Favre would be in my QB dozen!

Great wisdom in your post Prof KRG! Story telling in journalism is always effective because we're "wired" to learn and relate through story. I was pointed to an outstanding book entitled "Tell To Win" by Peter Guber. It's not a journalism book but a very read on the topic of storytelling.
