Fifty years ago this Saturday night-October 31.  It was a magical moment for the LSU Tigers and All American Billy Cannon.  And what a ride, from the top to the bottom, he has had over all these years.  You will be surprised to read that I played a minor role in the Billy Cannon counterfeit case.  Learn where the first $100 bill was discovered and why I was confronted by U.S. Treasury agents.  Have folks forgiven Ole’ Billy?  There won’t be any doubt Saturday night in Tiger Stadium when the crowd roars on and on when he will be introduced. Below is a replay of the famous night 50 years ago.  Read my new column on the highs and lows of Cannon by Clicking Here.
