I just finished another Mark Bowden book, The Best Game Ever.

The book is about the 1958 NFL Championship Game between the NY Giants & (then) Baltimore Colts. It was the first Championship game broadcast on TV and the first & only Championship game to go into sudden death overtime.

The game also featured 17 players & coaches that eventually made it into the NFL Hall of Fame and really increased the overall exposure & popularity of the NFL to what it is today.

An Excellent Book. Unless you don't like football.
