In 1958, journalist Neil Leifer took the picture that remains one of his most famous to this day. The day he got the shot - Alan Ameche''s game-winning "Sudden Death" touchdown - was Leifer''s 16th birthday. This game, called "The Greatest Ever Played," signaled football''s emergence as America''s new national pastime; formerly half-empty stadiums welcomed sold-out crowds seemingly overnight, while football surpassed baseball in national television ratings. Starting then, on any given Sunday Leifer was most likely shooting a football game somewhere in America. . . .
