Jesse James robs his first bank, Japan attacks Pearl Harbor, America heads to the moon one last time, instant replay is born, and Rod Blagojevich goes to prison, all on this day.
1963: Instant replay makes its debut during the television broadcast of the annual Army-Navy football game. The instant replay machine weighed 1,300 pounds and was used to broadcast only one replay, Rollie Stichweh's winning touchdown for Army. It was replayed at the original speed, with commentator Lindsey Nelson advising viewers "Ladies and gentlemen, Army did not score again!"
