The person grabbed the picture and asked if the girl was Namath’s, and he said yes thinking the person was pointing to his girlfriend.
But the person was pointing to the crown bearer, and went around telling everyone Namath dated a black girl. “I had a lot of bad times in the beginning, but it all changed.
Now, she is happily married to same Joe Namath, and the couple is crazy for each other.
We wish her best of luck for her life and appreciate her knowledge of sports and reporting skills.
We confirm that she is happily married to Joe Namath, and they are happily living their life with each other.
Joe Namath says the incident changed his life, and now he is a changed man.
They got to respect the way I felt and I think I might even have turned some of them around on a few things.
In my senior year, they voted me captain of the team; and when I think about it—about me mixed in with a bunch of guys from Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida—I consider it a very high honor,” Namath said. Namath was progressive and may have helped teach his teammates a little something about equality.
