1984: Howard Cosell retired from Monday Night Football




Like many of my generation, I grew up with Howard Cossell, Frank Guiford and Dan Meredith of ABC Monday Night Football.

It was the biggest game of the week and something that all of us looked forward to.  The ratings were huge as I recall.

On this day in 1984, Howard Cosell retired from the broadcast.

There were many great games and moments.

On December 8, 1980, New England and Miami were playing an important division game.

I don't recall exactly when but I fell asleep and missed the bulletin about John Lennon's shooting.   It was read on the air by Howard Cossel, who knew Lennon personally.    

Here is the link of that fateful moment:
