I've never heard the story of how ABC and Howard Cosell found out about the death of John Lennon.  This story is truly amazing. I've also never actually seen the clip of the announcement made on Monday Night Football. ESPN did a great job of telling the story of that fateful night - December 8th, 1980.

If the same story happened today, the world would hear about it on Facebook before anywhere else. Where were you and what were you doing when you heard the news?
