NFL | Namath Undergoing Counseling For Alcohol Abuse

The Associated Press reports former NFL QB Joe Namath is undergoing counseling for alcohol abuse a month after a television interview in which he slurred his words and twice told a sideline reporter he wanted to kiss her. "Well, I've enrolled, or I've gone into a center, and I'm getting personal help there," the Hall of Fame quarterback told ESPN in an interview to be aired Sunday, Jan. 25. "Yeah, these people are experts and we need to talk." In an interview during a New England Patriots-New York Jets game in December, Namath appeared intoxicated when he twice told ESPN reporter Suzy Kolber he wanted to kiss her. Namath subsequently apologized to Kolber. Namath said he had been drinking for several hours prior to kickoff.
