Hans Remembers- Saturday February 7, 1970- 50 years ago.
- Milhous Nixon’s Vice-President Spiro Agnew was his attack dog. He ended up resigning not because of any involvement in Watergate- but from issues back in Maryland when he was their governor. Agnew didn’t come across well in the media- and I remember what happened 50 years ago today well- at the Bob Hope Desert Classic- professional golfer Doug Sanders was struck on the head with a golf ball by a golf ball hit by Agnew. Sanders was unfortunate enough to be grouped with Agnew- along with Bob Hope and U.S. Senator George Murphy. Sanders was sent to the hospital for treatment after being hit. A year later Spiro hit three spectators while golfing.
