It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since John Lennon was murdered. 30 years.
And for football fans, especially Miami and New England fans, you probably remember exactly where you were when the news of Lennon’s death was announced. Watching Monday Night Football. The game was tied 13-13, with New England about to kick a field goal to win the game. That’s when Howard broke the news.
What you may not know or remember is that the field goal kicker was an Englishman. A soccer player. A true-blood Beatles fans. And he had no idea of what was happening off the field at that moment. The kick was blocked. The game went into overtime. The Dolphins scored on their first possession.
