What did she say, upon seeing him appear as celebrity host at the Chicago Business Fair we attended in 1992? “Mom, there’s Joe Namath….He’s the guy in the Flexall ads” (you know, for arthritis and age-related muscle problems.)

I shushed her…I didn’t want him to hear.

Oh, how the mighty tumble….Here’s a picture of New York Jets’ star quarterback–in his heyday.
