Broadway Joe Namath! The Most Shocking Upset In Super Bowl History! His Wild Ride With Ann-Margret!

Joe-Namath-Farrah Fawcett

The Legend Of Broadway Joe!

Talk about a fun locker room! One of the NFL’s most legendary stars not only hung out with Farrah Fawcett, he made football history when he said:

“We’re going to win Sunday. I guarantee it.”

Joe Namath’s Super Bowl Shocker!

It is the boldest prediction in Super Bowl history! And it was also the biggest upset in the game’s 55 year history…and it launched the legend of “Broadway Joe” Namath, one of the NFL’s most colorful stars…need proof? How about his choice of wardrobe when on the sideline?

Football And Fur Coats!

Yes, he wore a fur coat on the sideline! That, my friends, is how legends are born!

These pics say it all: he was a legendary ladies’ man who enjoyed all of the perks of a successful football career!

And he did the unthinkable: he promised a victory against the most dominant team in football – and he delivered!

Time To Celebrate The Sexy Legend Of Broadway Joe Namath!

He will always be one of football’s most colorful players, a Super Bowl-winning Quarterback who played and partied in America’s biggest city – and he lived up to every one of his legends! Who else would get ALL three of these Sports Illustrated covers!

Super Bowl MVP Joe Namath

From Superstar on the rise to NY party boy – and Super Bowl legend, the story of Joe Namath was, at the beginning, a traditional one…he became a great NFL Quarterback after being a great college football QB:

Namath played college football for the legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant at the University of Alabama from 1962 to 1964, before becoming a New York Jet.

Being an NFL Quarterback already shines a spotlight – but to be in the world’s media capital only heightens your fame – especially when you are the kind of person who not only enjoys it, but knows how to grab a headline!

He wore white fur coats on the sidelines when not suited up to play, and he lived “larger-than-life” in a city that not only embraced him, they made him the toast of the town!


“Broadway Joe’s” Super Bowl Guarantee!

Namath’s legendary status was sealed when he boldly predicted that his New York Jets, from the upstart American Football League, would beat the legendary Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl 3.

“We’re going to win Sunday. I guarantee it.”

It’s important to remember that this was only the third Super Bowl, and the Green Bay Packers from the NFL had easily beaten the clearly outmatched AFL teams the previous two years…

But Joe Didn’t Care.

The Biggest Upset In NFL History!

Namath backed up his bold guarantee by leading the Jets to a shocking upset over Don Shula’s NFL Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III, 16-7. Many feel it led the NFL to move faster to merge with the AFL…

Namath’s career was hampered by injuries, but while he played, he was one of the game’s biggest stars.

After conquering the world of sports, where else was there for “Broadway Joe” to go than, of course, Hollywood!

“Broadway Joe Meets Sex Symbol Ann-Margret!

Namath went to Hollywood and starred in the cult classic action film “C.C. and Company”, with sex symbol Ann-Margret…check out the trailer!

Namath ended up on some of the 70’s and 80’s biggest TV shows such as “The Love Boat”, “Married… with Children”, “The Brady Bunch”, and “The A-Team!”

He was, for a time, the epitome of “cool”…and has done a nice job of transitioning into a champion of the game…

He’s one of sport’s most entertaining stars…and The NFL Network captured it all with a terrific show about his career a while ago – really worth a look:

Of course, his cult film “C.C. & Company” isn’t that good, but it’s fun to watch.

It helps that his co-star was one of Hollywood’s most popular sex kittens at the time!

Ann-Margret has had an amazing career, from co-starring with Joe Namath and Elvis, to starring in the cult classic “Tommy” – with an outrageous baked bean scene!

  1. I remember years later when he was being interviewed on live television years later at a game, and he’d obviously been drinking. The reporter asked him a question, and he responded by telling the reporter he wanted to kiss her. Super awkward!

  2. What a great read, and perfect for today. I’ll never forget his white coat! Who was the quarterback for the Colts that year when he guaranteed the win?
