THE BEST GAME EVER Giants vs. Colts, 1958, and the Birth of the Modern NFL

by | Read by Phil Gigante

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

It's been fifty years since the 1958 championship between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants. More than simply a great game, it was a great game played at just the right time. The fledgling sport was about to step out from baseball's shadow as the medium of television stood poised to broadcast it to the masses in the 1960s. Bowden weaves solid research and mini-biographies throughout historical accounts of the time. Phil Gigante's deep tone is as steady as a scoring drive. The appropriate accents he uses to represent players, coaches, and others are the only creative enhancement needed to capture the inherent drama in this story. This should be required listening for any fan who doesn't yet know the significance of this seminal football game. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2008]
