From Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football.
....And Texxon is there. (oh no wait, that was Buckwheat)
Why do I have a feeling that Yoko hired the person to have John killed????
Were you watching Monday Night Football or heard it from other sources?
I remember I was shocked at the time that he was gunned down the way he was, but it didn’t leave any lasting impression because I don’t have a clue where I was or how I heard about it.
Now, if you want to know where I was when I found out Elvis died I can give you a detailed account. :)
Somebody has a tagline to that effect: Lennon took all six bullets, Yoko not hurt...
Wish I remembered who it was...
Damn, John Lennon has been murdered?
“What kind of country is this where John Lennon takes six bullets in the chest, and Yoko is standing right next to him and not one single f’ing bullet? Explain that to me.” - Dennis Leary
Thats what I say.
I was 11 years old and lived too far out in the boonies. We didn’t watch TV that much because we were too busy tending to the cattle. Besides, any mention of JLennon or some such pop-culture hippy thing as this got a swift “off” on the TV set.
“We don’t have time to listen to music. You should be eating, sleeping or working.” says my father.
BTW, here's a link to what I guess you could call a 12/08 Truther site (Yes, it was a conspiracy by Nixon, Reagan, and Stephen King, but you knew that all along, didn't you?): http://www.lennonmurdertruth.com .
I was only about 7 years old at the time, but I remember the night the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan show. They had barely started singing when my dad got up and turned the TV off and announced that his family wasn't going to watch that crap. I think I remember it so well because my dad said crap in front of the kids and got scolded by my mom which was an unprecedented occurrence.
When the Beatles first were famous, John was my favorite. But by the time he fell for Yoko, he’d become a pompous jerk. And his solo music sucked. Now we’re condemned to hear “Imagine” and his loathsome Christmas song forever.
I also heard about it from Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football.
Up doing homework, listening to an AM NYC radio station, oddly enough.
I lived down south, but it was one of those stations that you could pick up late at night when the other stations went off the air.
It was a sad night.
An old friend, who has since passed, called me and told me. I believe I was watching a football game on TV. I thought she had to have heard it wrong.
monday night football?
