Description "The colts' baltimore"

This is Michael Olesker's nostalgic reminiscence of 1958, the year the Baltimore Colts defeated the New York Giants in sudden-death overtime in a game that still grips the emotions of Baltimoreans. Olesker recaptures the city's love affair with the Colts in a series of thoughtful and colorful stories that give voice to such notable characters as Colts players Johnny Unitas and Art Donovan, politicians Tommy D'Alesandro and Jack Pollack, entertainers Buddy Dean and Royal Parker, sportscasters Chuck Thompson and Vince Bagli, and filmmaker John Waters."The Colts' Baltimore" also traces the changing cultural landscape of the city on the eve of an age of revolution - a time when schools were being racially integrated, rock and roll was playing on the radio, and Baltimore was planning to renew the downtown and Inner Harbor.Revealing the immutable ties between Baltimore and its beloved Colts, Olesker's affectionate collection makes the events of 1958 seem like only yesterday.
