20th ANNIVERSAY - THEISMANN'S LEG SNAPS

Wow, its been 20 years since "The Hit That No One Who Saw It Can Ever Forget". RFK Stadium, 1985 - Redskins' quarterback Joe Theismann got hit by NY Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor. For those of you who saw it on that night on Monday Night Football, you will remember - Theismann's lower leg bent the wrong way and bone came a-poppin-out, for all the viewers to see! Taylor said he knew immediately after hitting Theismann that it was bad. He even quickly ran to the Redskin' sideline to grab their medical people . It ended Theismann's career right then and there.

To this day, Theismann said he has not seen a replay. He said Taylor has told him he has not watched it either.

*The actual anniversary DAY was last friday.
