Joe Namath's Kiss Controversy
Suzy Kolber was involved in an infamous interview with Joe Namath, the Jets' Super Bowl III hero, in 2003. During the interview, he slurred,
"I want to kiss you. I couldn't care less about the team struggling... I want to kiss you."
The matter blew up, and Joe received a lot of flak for his behavior. He apologized for his actions and revealed that he was inebriated during the interview. Later, he opened up about the incident and how it helped him fight addiction. In his own words:
"I saw it as a blessing in disguise. I had embarrassed my friends and family and could not escape that feeling. I haven’t had a drink since.
That shame is where I found my strength to deal with the addiction. With the help of my recovery, I learned that I had used my divorce as an excuse to go back to drinking. That knowledge made me a stronger individual"
The Jets' hero talks in-depth about this and other events in his life in his book All the Way: My Life in Four Quarters.
