    On December 28, 1958, the New York Giants and Baltimore Colts met under the lights of Yankee Stadium for that season's NFL Championship game. Football was still greatly over-shadowed by the country's favored pastime - baseball - but the 1958 championship proved to be the turning point for pro football.

    On the field and roaming the sidelines were 17 future Hall of Famers, including Colts stars Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry, and Gino Marchetti, and Giants greats Frank Gifford, Sam Huff, and assistant coaches Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry.

    The Best Game Ever is a brilliant portrait of how a single game changed the history of American sports.

    Overall

    The book started out slow as the characters were setup. But I found myself not wanting to get out of the car at the end of a day as I was listening to this book. As usual in Mark Bowden's books the characters become so real that you feel you are there.
    As someone that grew up in the 60's this really brought back a lot of memories. I would recommend it.
