A few things that shows Jets legend Joe Namath's liberated attitude about women: He wore pantyhose in a 1974 Beautymist commercial. He made wearing a fur coat and sunglasses on sidelines popular. And he considers ESPN sideline interviews fair game to hit on women, especially when they are interviewing him. During the Jets-Patriots this part weekend, ESPN's Suzy Kolber was interviewing Namath when he leaned in and said, "I want to kiss you." Kolber deflected it, probably thinking it was a non sequiter, by saying, "Thanks, Joe. A huge compliment." But Namath repeated later, "I want to kiss you," which saw Kolber ending the interview by tossing back to ESPN's football commentators. Classy, Joe. Real classy.
