December 8th 1980, 35 years ago today Howard Cosell revealed this to the world on Monday Night Football..
Who knows how different the world would be, if at all, had John Lennon not been murdered in the streets of New York that night- but the idea that one man could have had any kind of significant impact on the world is worth dreaming of.
John Lennon was one man, sure he was part of the biggest band of all time but he was so much more than that. An icon, a symbol of peace, love and joy. The world was robbed of that.
I don’t know that there is much else to say other than there will never be another.
