Joe Namath, or Broadway Joe, seemed bigger than life when he helped the Jets and the upstart AFL to legitimacy by winning the Super Bowl. The New York media loved his bigger-than-life personality.  He seemed to enjoy the attention as well. Plus it benefitted him after his playing career was done. He made many TV and movie appearances and, for awhile, was part of the Monday Night Football broadcast team.

So, Joe Namath is 80 ! Let that soak in. And let’s celebrate his career on ESPN Southwest Florida.
