Imagine – John Lennon

Posted by rexdixon on December 9, 2006

If you are old enough, everyone remembers where they were when they heard the news about about John Lennon getting murdered in front of his home. I was a typical teenage kid watching Monday Night Football when Howard Cosell broke from his football script to let the world in on the news.

Do I remember who was playing? Technically Speaking, I could lie about that part and look it up, honestly, no.

    I’ll never forget that announcement by Howard Cosell either.

    To set the record straight, Howard Cosell DID NOT say “Look at that little monkey run” when he was referring to Redskins wide receiver Alvin Garrett. Cosell made this remark 11 years earlier in 1972 in reference to a play by Kansas City Chiefs Mike Adamle. It was 1983 on Monday Night Football when Cosell made his comment about Alvin Garrett which was “That little monkey gets loose doesn’t he.”

    I am still looking for a sound byte or video clip of Howard Cosell saying “Look at that little monkey run.” I hear that it might be contained in a Preseason 1972 K.C. Chiefs @ Giants 07/29/72 “Hall of Fame” Game. Can anyone locate the actual clip?
