December 8, 1980...

For some, 1980 feels like a generation ago.  For me, not so much.   It seems like yesterday… the day John Lennon was shot to death outside the Dakota apartment building.  There were no immediate on-scene reporters, no helicopters, no “Breaking News” on CNN… and certainly no tweets.  Most of us heard about the tragedy from Howard Cosell during Monday Night Football.  How that came to be is a fascinating story, revealed on ESPN’s Outside The Lines last weekend.  Coincidentally, an ABC reporter was in Roosevelt Hospital at exactly the time John Lennon was rushed in…  and he was aware of the unsuccessful efforts to save him.  Tom Rinaldi has the story on ESPN 1320… tellytube photo
