Football and music fans will forever remember December 8, 1980.
Famed musician John Lennon, a member of rock’s greatest group The Beatles as well as a successful solo artist, was killed outside of his New York City apartment building by a crazed fan.
For those watching that night’s Monday Night Football matchup between the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins, commentator Howard Cosell’s somber announcement informing a shocked nation will live on forever.
Re-live the infamous moment:
NFL …. football is just a game. “ All We Need is Love”. We were all reminded of this, on a particular Monday night. RIP https://t.co/7mBRU2CBYJ
