31 Days of Moustache: Joe Namath

Name: Joe Namath
DOB: May 31, 1943
DOD: Still Alive
Profession: Athlete
Claim to Fame: Quarterback of New York Jets
Prime YAM (Years Active with Moustache): 70s

Why It's Awesome:
Long before there was Tom Brady, there was Joe Namath. Guys wanted to be him and ladies wanted to be with him. Most people don't remember Namath with a moustache, but he really had the look down in the 70s. His moustache was actually much more popular than you may remember, too. Remington paid him $10,000 to shave it in a tv commercial. Soon after this, he had his face creamed by Farrah Fawcett in another commercial. Really, he has his moustache to thank. It started it all.

Oh, and let's not forget him making a complete drunken fool of himself on tv a couple years ago (see above video). I can almost guarnatee that would have never happened if he had a moustache.

Final 'Stache Rating (Out of Four Moustaches):

This is actually a solid 'stache. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a handlebar. That is a different style, yet people always think this is one. It's a horseshoe, which is not an easy one to grow at all.
