Throwback Thursday: Joe Namath

“Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.” True. But drunk and stupid
are completely acceptable if you’ve got a cannon for a right arm. Enter Joe Namath aka Broadway Joe aka Joe Willie aka Wooly Namath Balls. Our buddy Joe has been notorious for doing whatever he wants and pretty much always getting away with it.

Turns out you can do pretty much anything in New York as long as you’re winning games. Pantyhose commercials, fur coats on the sidelines, and retiring from football just because the NFL said he couldn’t own a bar, no one thought Joe could out-Namath himself. So in the spirit of proving everyone the fuck wrong, Broadway Joe got drunk and hit on poor miss Suzy Kolber on national television at the ripe old age of sixty.

Now this video is hilarious on a lot of levels. Other than the shameless sexual “harassment,” notice who he’s heaping praise on. Yeah…Chad Pennington. You mean the all-time legend and possibly greatest quarterback ever, Chad Pennington? Nope, that guy doesn’t exist. I’m talking about six playoff games ever, two-time Comeback Player of the Year…and that’s about it, Chad Pennington. But Big Sack McNamath likes him, so that’s good enough for me.

“I believe everything that anyone else has watched Chad play impresses me the same thing it impresses them.” Exactly.


    His autobiography is titled I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow…Cause I Get Better Lookin’ Every Day. TFTC.

  3. Fraternity Man

    173 TDs to 220 INTs and a career 65.5 QB rating, which is lower than those of David Carr, Kordell Stewart, and Alex Smith. Despite actually being a very shitty quarterback, he is SFIDM (so frat it doesn’t matter).

    1. Actually the fact that he’s in the hall of fame and has a super bowl ring is why it doesn’t matter.

      Yes, he won a Super Bowl. So did Trent Dilfer. He’s probably only in the hall because of his image, the guarantee, and the fact that he played in New York. 65.5!
