The divided opinion about Namath seems driven as much by its subject as by its author. Critics extol the coverage of Namath's early career, but when the story turns post-football, many reviewers flinch. It is as if they can't reconcile their memories of Broadway Joe with the drunken, luckless-in-love man he became (sadly demonstrated last year on live television when an inebriated Namath twice told ESPN's sideline reporter Suzy Kolber that he wanted to kiss her). Kriegel, a former sports reporter, goes heavy on play-by-play breakdowns
