Football Legend Joe Namath To Homophobic Bigots: ‘Get Over It’ – Video

Appearing on HuffPost Live Superbowl Champion and football legend Broadway Joe Namath told the interviewer that while he says he  doesn’t know which of his former teammates were gay, he did have a message for those who might be anti-gay:

“I have friends that are gay. I’ve worked in theater, I’ve been in art, you  know, for some time. We work shoulder to shoulder. There’s a lot of love from me  to them, too. That’s life, you know. And if you’ve got a hangup about it, I hope  you can get over it because it’s real.”

Well said Joe. Well said.
