December 8, 1980...

For some, 1980 feels like a generation ago. ¬†For me, not so much.¬†¬† It seems like yesterday‚Ķ the day John Lennon was shot to death outside the Dakota apartment building.¬† There were no immediate on-scene reporters, no helicopters, no ‚ÄúBreaking News‚ÄĚ on CNN‚Ķ 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‚Äôs Outside The Lines last weekend.¬† Coincidentally, an ABC reporter was in Roosevelt Hospital at exactly the time John Lennon was rushed in‚Ķ¬† and he was aware of the unsuccessful efforts to save him.¬† Tom Rinaldi has the story on ESPN 1320‚Ķ tellytube photo
