Super Bowl XLVIII 's first viral star emerged before the kickoff in the form of a fuzzy Joe Namath.

A sports hero in his own right, Broadway Joe gave the crowd even more to rumble about when he strutted into the Super Bowl in a hooded mink coat and performed the coin toss for the big game. The 70-year-old stood before the teams in his fur finery and flipped the coin ... twice.

Namath's first flip came before either team could make a call. Perhaps they both were lost in Namath's swag-exuding look. Eventually, the former New York Jet flipped the coin again with the Seattle Seahawks winning the call.

But it's not Namath's coin-toss fiasco that people are talking about; it's his out-of-sight outerwear. The Internet is already drawing coat comparisons. Here are eight things that look like Joe Namath's coat:
