Joe Namath Kissing Retiring Verne Lundquist Was Highlight Of Iron Bowl


The Iron Bowl was far from an instant classic like Michigan-Ohio State was, but it still provided us with at least one memorable moment.

During No. 1 Alabama’s 30-12 thumping of No. 13 Auburn, Crimson Tide legend Joe Namath visited the CBS broadcast booth to wish Verne Lundquist well before his retirement at the end of the season.

And, of course, a Namath appearance wouldn’t be complete without wearing a fur coat and trying to kiss an announcer.

Joe Namath stopped by the booth for a chat…and to say a fond farewell to Verne Lundquist. #IronBowl https://t.co/Pv57BHzaFC

Namath also tweeted out a message for Lundquist before his visit to the broadcast booth.

Also just wanna thank Verne Lundquist for being the kinda guy he is and the great job he’s done for so many sports fans for so many years.
