The year 2008 marks the 50th anniversary of the NFL Championship game won by the Colts in dramatic sudden-death fashion by Johnny Unitas's Baltimore Colts over the New York Giants of Frank Gifford and Sam Huff. That game was chronicled in 1976 by Dave Klein (The Game of Their Lives) and in 1988 by John Steadman (The Greatest Football Game Ever Played), while Mark Bowden exploited several new sources in The Best Game Ever this past spring. Now, veteran journalist Sahadi weighs in on the oft-told tale. Although he offers a serviceable rendering of that significant game, Sahadi dedicates too much space to a general history of the NFL and of the two franchises involved in the contest and does not bring much new to the story of the game itself. An optional purchase for public libraries.
