Nfl Football Hoodies
The 1958 championship game was the first NFL playoff game to go into sudden death overtime. Featuring a who’s who of gridiron legends including Johnny Unitas and Frank Gifford, the contest between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants was played at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx and attracted a national television audience. Professional football at that time was rising in popularity, but was playing second fiddle to the likes of baseball and boxing in terms of sports viewership. The game would later become known in football lore as “The Greatest Game Ever Played.” More importantly, the game captured the collective attention of the nation and as a result, and pro football exploded across the country in the following years. By the mid-1960s, professional football became the nation’s favorite sport to watch and has remained on top ever since.
