Happy Annviersary Boss!

Today is the 20th anniversary of one of Mike Bossy's greatest feats -- his 50th
goal in 50 games.

How big a story was it? So big that Sports Illustrated dedicated a significant

Bossy, by the way, did not make the cover of SI that week. Rod Martin did.
Martin had 3 interceptions in a football game that was played the day after
50-in-50: Super Bowl XV.
