This week I had the good fortune to spend over an hour talking with football legend Joe Namath on our Outkick the podcast.
It’s a spectacular listen, not because of anything I did, but because Namath was such a scintillating guest.
Namath talked about his time playing for Alabama’s legendary head coach Bear Bryant — who once lifted him off the ground at practice for not looking him in the eye — and even discussed what it was like to be on campus when George Wallace was standing in front of the schoolhouse door.
Whether it’s his guarantee that the Jets would beat the Colts and the reaction of his coach in the days before the Super Bowl or an analysis of his infamous interview with Suzy Kolber on Monday Night Football, Namath spoke honestly in a way that you rarely hear iconic sports stars do.
