According to the Internet, the flashy fur coat worn by Joe Namath during the botched coin toss was one of the biggest stars of Super Bowl XLVIII. It even has its own Twitter account.

Tell us again...how many Super Bowl Championships does Joe-Willie have?
At least ONE
...and how many does Peyton Maning have?
Carrot Juice is Murder
I loved the coat. But I love the fact that Namath doesn’t give a rat’s rear end what people think of what he wears even more.
Rock on, Namath. (Can I have the coat when you’re done with it?)
Excellent news for trappers.
Back when the Super Bowl really meant something to football.
Wait, Joe-Willy beat the favored Baltimore Colts who were lead by Earl Morall (1 Super Bowl win as a back-up) and Johnny Unitas (1 Super Bowl win as a starter).
Why so many Peyton haters?
Gorgeous coat! Is Namath part Native American, because it suits him perfectly.
that’s funny! that’s EXACTLY what I was thinking! He looks exactly like a native American
Listen up brothers and sisters,
come hear my desperate tale.
I speak of our friends of nature,
trapped in the dirt like a jail.
Vegetables live in oppression,
served on our tables each night.
This killing of veggies is madness,
I say we take up the fight.
Salads are only for murderers,
coleslaw’s a fascist regime.
Don’t think that they don’t have feelings,
just cause a radish can’t scream.
I’ve heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (having their insides revealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (burning off calories)
How do you think that feels (bet it hurts really bad)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (and that’s a real crime)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (let my vegetables go)
It’s time to stop all this gardening (it’s dirty as hell)
Let’s call a spade a spade (is a spade is a spade is a spade)
I saw a man eating celery,
so I beat him black and blue.
If he ever touches a sprout again,
I’ll bite him clean in two.
I’m a political prisoner,
trapped in a windowless cage.
Cause I stopped the slaughter of turnips
by killing five men in a rage
I told the judge when he sentenced me,
This is my finest hour,
I’d kill those farmers again
just to save one more cauliflower
How low as people do we dare to stoop,
Making young broccolis bleed in the soup?
Untie your beans, uncage your tomatoes
Let potted plants free, don’t mash that potato!
I’ve heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (fates in the stirfry are sealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (you fat gormet slob)
How do you think that feels? (leave them out in the field)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (V8’s genocide)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (yes, your composts are graves)
It’s time to stop all this gardening (take up macrame)
Let’s call a spade a spade (is a spade, is a spade, is a spade, is a spade.....
Hey Joe, that coin flip thing was a bit off timing?
That was Joe Namath?
I thought it was Barbra Streisand.
Joe looked good in a fur coat in the 70’s and he looked good in a fur coat Sunday. :-)
Streisand never looked that good.
Because nobody ever tried to declare Joe-Willy the greatest ever. Through no fault if his own (it’s not like he’s ever made these claims) Peyton is graded on a different curve, a curve that makes his so-so playoff record stand out brighter.
We may all need one of those when the government bans all wood burning and heating oil is too costly.
same as Peyton Manning :)
Now, I think of that long mink coat as a prepper piece of equipment. If power is out in the winter time, I would wear that coat as cold cannot get through it. It is an animal produced insulator. Wear it to bed and you won't get cold during the night. The hat will keep your head warm regardless of the cold.
I wore that coat when I was in England in a brutal winter and I stayed warm. House heating over there is not great as there are cold spots due to heating coming from radiators and bedrooms are cold. I used the coat over my body at night to stay warm with the rest of the cover over the coat.
So, fur coats are warm and are worn to keep out cold. They can be worn as a decorative ornament, (poor animals used for an ornament), but the use is in the brain of the owner. I don't give a damn what others would say about my fur coat.
Same as Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer, and Jeff Hostetler,
You go girl...both my mother and grandmother had furs...living in SoCal not much need for one. If i lived in colder climes, I would indeed have one. Sable I think, and it would reach my ankles...and I would wear it everywhere, over my nightgowm...even to take out the garbage. :-)
So...when does the media take the hit for Peyton’s (perceived) abject failure?
same as Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Jim McMahon...
“and it would reach my ankles”
Mine is almost that long. Back in those years, full length fur coats were long and full around, could wrap up in them. How long and narrow they are these days, I don’t know. The “poor little animal” people can go suck eggs.
Namath got the MVP for that SB, but it was the Jet's defense that won the game.
Peyton’s would be a contender for the best regular season QB.
Media doesn’t care, they’re job is to talk. They talk him up, then he fails, then they talk him up again. Assuming they make the playoffs again all the same “might be the greatest ever accept for that post season problem” will start again right at the point the Broncos clinch. It’s the nature of the beast.
Past contention, at this point given how many records he holds and has held he just plain is the best regular season QB ever. And honestly I don’t blame him for post season failure, one of the truisms of the NFL is the further into the post season you get the more coaching counts. And you can see a lot of coaching failure in his losses, way too often Peyton’s coaches seem to come in with the same plan as in the regular season, no attempt to break tendencies. Look at the pick six NO got on him, everybody who has ever watched Peyton play knows he loves that outlet pass to the left flat against blitzes, it’s a bad habit he’s had his whole career, bad because he does it 3 or 4 times a game. And sure enough NO clearly was expecting that play, faked a blitz (thus “forcing” the play), ran in front of the pass and got a TD. Good coaches would have spent 2 weeks reminding Peyton that everybody in the football world knows he hots to the left flat and NO has more than enough time to put in a play specifically to capitalize on that so he needs to get unpredictable on that.
I always wanted a fur. The ex would never agree to it (He used to work at the National Wildlife Federation, so you know how far I got with that wish with him).
We got divorced about a year after my father passed away. I used some of my money from Dad to buy a mink. Full length. I love it. I got it used from estatefurs.com and got a fantastic deal. I’ve been wearing it a lot this winter since it’s been beastly cold here in Virginia. I am not cold at all wearing it and I don’t give a rat’s rear end what the PC police think. Thanks Dad!
Now that kickoff return by Denver and first snap - those were botches.
“I am not cold at all wearing it and I dont give a rats rear end what the PC police think.”
Glad you have the coat. That is the reason for such a coat. In olden days on the frontier of this country, fur was the option to stay warm.
Ladies...I am happy you both have lovely warm furs. Enjoy them in good health. :-)
