Who'da thunk football great Joe Namath would end up in a fashion face-off? And yet, here we are.
The AFL/NFL icon Namath made a huge splash in the opening moments of Sunday's Super Bowl XLVIII when he appeared on the field at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey for the coin toss wearing a rather voluminous fur coat -- with a hood, no less.
Namath then proceeded to fumble the coin toss between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos by attempting to toss the coin before either team had called heads or tails.
Didn't matter, as all eyes were on that ostentatious coat. We couldn't help compare Namath to a couple of other icons that instantly came to mind: Thrift-shop master Macklemore and our very own IKEA monkey.
What do you think? Vote or comment below the photo, and see what others thought of Namath's coat:
Of course, Namath, known as Broadway Joe, has been rocking the furs since his prime in the 1960s. Love the kicks in the photo below, too.

The Twitters could not stop talking about Joe's coat:
Not surprisingly, PETA (People for the Ethical Treament Of Animals) was not impressed, and tweeted several times to Namath's account:
