"The Raven" is first published, baseball and football induct their first hall of fame classes, the Gulf War fighting takes to the ground, and President George W. Bush coins the phrase "Axis of Evil," all on this day.
2002: Former NFL player Dick "Night Train" Lane, best known as a defensive back for the Los Angeles Rams, Chicago Cardinals and Detroit Lions, dies of a heart attack at the age of 74 in Austin, Texas. As an undrafted rookie with the Rams in 1952, Lane set the record for most interceptions in an NFL season with 14, a record that has stood for more than 60 years. He was named the best cornerback of the first 50 years of professional football in 1969 and was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1974.
