Forty-first Anniversary of Black Sunday

June 1, 2021, will mark the 41st anniversary of Black Sunday, when referee Toros Kibritjian and linesman Gordon Arrowsmith conspired to do whatever it would take to rob the Dips of their rightful victory over the Cosmos. Whatever it took amounted to disallowing two Diplomat goals on the shakiest of terms.

Paul Cannell, Bobby Stokes and Tommy O'Hara signatures from an autograph session in Bloomingdale's in White Flint Mall in Bethesda, MD, April, 1978. I went with 2 other friends. Stokesy and O'Hara were reserved and borderline shy. Cannell was in typical form, ogling the Honey Dips (cheerleaders) and playing about 30 minutes of penny soccer, a version of the game using coins, with us. It was one of the biggest thrills of my youth. To think Paul Cannell would take the time to be so friendly to a few 12 year olds!
