Joe Namath’s Super Bowl XLVIII Coin Toss was Intercepted by an Official (GIF)

Broadway Joe accidentally jumped the gun during the opening coin toss, flipping it before the Seahawks had a chance to call either heads or tails. The result was Namath’s first interception during a Super Bowl appearance, as his initial flip was picked off by one of the officials.
