Mark Bowden's "The Best Game Ever"

I am a huge fan of Mark Bowden's work. He is the author of Black Hawk Down and Killing Pablo. He has a book coming out on May 5, entitled The Best Game Ever, about the Giants-Colts championship game in 1958. Click here to read an excerpt in Sports Illustrated. Another excellent book about that era is Tom Callahan's Johnny U., a biography of Johnny Unitas.
