    Dolphins Monday Night Football game and John Lennon

    A memorial Dolphins game. I still remember when they announced that John Lennon was shot.

    " You do know who John Lennon is?"

    "Yea, he was the president after Lincoln"

    I was 14 at the time, watching the Dolphins play the Patriots. When Howard Cosell made the announcement, my mother started crying and saying, "Why would anyone do that?" The next day at school, a great many students were just in shock. The principal made a special announcement that morning and I just remember being very, very empty that day. Still am in a lot of ways.

    That happened a year before I was born, but just hearing and watching the footage of the MNF breaking that news just sent a shiver down my spine. Lennon was a great musician, and human being.

    I recall Cosell say he was shot first and then they came back on and said John Lennon was dead....
