    The assassination of John Lennon, on Monday, December 8th, 1980, was first announced to the world by Howard Cosell while broadcasting "NFL Monday Night Football" (1970) {New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins (#11.14)}. According to Frank Gifford, Lennon met Ronald Reagan when both were guests on a Monday Night Football game on Monday, December 8th, 1975. This game link is "NFL Monday Night Football" (1970) {Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders (#6.12)}. Coincidentally, 5 years (261 weeks) differ among John Lennon's visit and death, Monday, December 8th, 1975 & Monday, December 8th, 1980. After appearing on the show, Lennon gave Gifford and Howard Cosell each a complete collection of Beatles' albums, which he autographed.
