Anniversary of John Lennon’s Assasination as Announced on Monday Night Football
Tonight we will have another football tailgate party at Jackson’s Sports Bar and Clubhouse lounge kicking off at 5:30.
It was 33 years ago yesterday, December 8th, 1980, that the world was shocked to hear of the death of Beatle John Lennon.
From Lennon’s Wikipedia page: At around 10:50 pm on 8 December 1980, as Lennon and Ono returned to their New York apartment in the Dakota, Mark David Chapman shot Lennon in the back four times at the entrance to the building. Lennon was taken to the emergency room of nearby Roosevelt Hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival at 11:07 pm. Earlier that evening, Lennon had autographed a copy of Double Fantasy for Chapman.
