The eXile's History of the World
 
Page 5 of 5
 
Unitas, the 35-year-old quarterback who sat out most of the season with a sore arm after taking the Colts to two NFL championships in his 12-season career, hit on three straight passes, two to flanker Willie Richardson and one to split end Jimmy Orr, to threaten at the Jets' 19-yard line. But he couldn't get his team in the end zone.

Taking over with 2:21 remaining, Namath used Snell on all six running plays and took two penalties for delaying the game before having Curley Johnson punt the ball to the deflated Colts with only 15 seconds remaining. Unitas managed to complete one of two passes from his 34-yard line, to Richardson for 15 yards, before time expired, marking the end of the NFL's supremacy in the event after two one-sided victories by the Green Bay Packers.

For Coach Weeb Ewbank the flouting of the 17 1/2-point spread against his Jets was especially satisfying. He was adding the Super Bowl triumph as an AFL coach to two NFL championships as coach of the Colts. And he was wreaking a sort of vengeance over critics who wondered if he was able to control players such as Namath, Snell and halfback Emerson Boozer, whom he had fined only Monday.

For Colts coach Don Shula, it was a tragic end to a proud season. With a team that had won a record 15 games in one NFL season and had humiliated the Cleveland Browns in the playoffs, they could not stop Broadway Joe, and went down in history on the losing end of the biggest upset in pro football history.

The Outlook Today

People today are feeling more positive than ever. If you're a person today, chances are you could just shit yourself with happiness. More than ever before, people are waking up in the morning, fixing themselves cups of fresh-ground coffee, taking a full, hearty swig, and thinking with a smile, "I've got options!" There is a sense of optimism and irrepressible energy which is now permeating every area of human activity, from business to relations between nations, from bold new strokes in art to exciting new developments in science, from the raising of families to holy matrimony. There is a sense of here-and-nowness which is enveloping everything. It's as though people are saying, "We're here. This is it. This is our time." Even we at the eXile can feel it: suddenly, it seems like anything is possible. It's a really, really exciting time. The moment is here; it's just up to us to grasp it. Will the window of opportunity close on us? Not if we act fast. And we think we can.
