Inspired by yesterday's back to the future and the 26 (twenty six) year anniversary of Southampton smashing Liverpool 4-1 at the Dell,
I am going to pick one news item and one sports/Saints related item from this date back in time. Would be good if others chipped in.
I find it very interesting at times, when I think blimey really, this was X years ago!!
In a dramatic televised address to the American public, President John F. Kennedy announces that the Soviet Union has placed nuclear weapons in Cuba and, in response, the United States will establish a blockade around the island to prevent any other offensive weapons from entering Castro’s state. Kennedy also warned the Soviets that any nuclear attack from Cuba would be construed as an act of war, and that the United States would retaliate in kind.
Saints made history by becoming the first post war club to field three brothers, Ray joined Rod and Danny Wallace. We lost at home to Sheffield Wednesday 1-2.
