In 1963 John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The Beatles released ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand.’ Studebaker ended car production. Alcatraz closed. The Great Train Robbery took place. And the Edmonton Eskimos, coached by Eagle Keys, lost nine consecutive games.

In 1971 Jim Morrison was found dead in a bath tub in Paris. Charles Manson received the death penalty. Walt Disney World opened in Florida. The U.S. table tennis team visited Communist China. And the Edmonton Eskimos started the season with a 1-10 record.
