It''s every sports fan''s wildest, craziest fantasy--the chance to play on the field and go toe-to-toe with the larger-than-life heroes they idolize.

In the bicentennial year of 1976, Papale lived out the dreams of a city and a nation by taking on the impossible with an unsinkable attitude and becoming the NFL''s most unlikely rookie ever.
