Tutti quanti, almeno una volta nella propria vita, hanno sentito pronunciare la frase "Clamoroso al Cibali". La celebre dichiarazione del radiocronista Sandro Ciotti venne esclamata la prima volta nel giugno del 1969, per celebrare l'incredibile vittoria del Catania sull'inter.
30 anni dopo, più precisamente il 25 aprile 1999, al Cibali andò in scena un'altra giornata storica.
I rosazzurri affrontano il Messina nel derby siciliano, sempre ricco di emozioni e mai banale: stiamo parlando della prima in classifica contro la seconda della classe del campionato di Serie C2, non c'è domani.
La cornice di pubblico è degna della migliore finale della coppa dei campioni, ma il match non si sblocca.
La sfida sembra volersi concludere con la classica parità a reti bianche ma Roberto Manca, attaccante subentrato a Passiatore a 5' dalla fine, non è assolutamente dello stesso parere.
Siamo nei minuti di recupero, quelli che cambiano la direzione di una stagione intera.
Sulla sinistra, dopo una serie di finte ubriacanti, l'esterno Alessandro Cicchetti mette un traversone al bacio su cui si avventa, come un falco, proprio Roberto Manca che, di testa, gonfia la rete. 1-0, esplode la gioia immensa del Cibali, l'intera Catania in festa a esultare per il traguardo della promozione in Serie C1.
Roberto Manca, l'eroe dal mantello rosazzurro che ha salvato una città intera, regalandogli il meritatissimo passaggio in C1.
Anche in questo caso l'espressione "Clamoroso al Cibali" sarebbe calzata a pennello.

#OTD , the #StarTrek#TNG episode that took Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby) from us, "Skin of Evil." 😢 The black slime that Riker was coated in was made from a mixture of Metamucil and printer's ink--and Jonathan Frakes did the scene himself where he got sucked into it.

#OTD April 25, 1908, famed CBS broadcaster Edward R. Murrow was born in Greensboro. You can see his war correspondent jacket, Peabody medal, and more at the #GsoHistory Museum. More on why Murrow matters courtesy of @ncculture⠀
"On April 25, 1908, famed CBS broadcaster Edward R. Murrow was born in Greensboro. Though their ties to the area were strong, the Murrow family moved to Washington state while Edward was still young. There Murrow enrolled at Washington State College, where he had the opportunity to go to Washington, D.C., as president of the National Student Federation. In 1935, Murrow became “director of talks” for CBS Radio. With tensions mounting in Europe, he was dispatched to Europe two years later. Hitler’s annexation of Austria in 1938 began Murrow’s rise to fame. His broadcasts during the Battle of Britain, beginning each evening with “This is London,” are legendary. In 1951, Murrow began the series See It Now. His signature on that series was his sign-off: “Good night and good luck.” Perhaps the most noted episode of the program came in March 1954 when Murrow took on Senator Joseph R. McCarthy. The program is credited with significantly contributing to McCarthy’s downfall."

🎉 Happy birthday to our namesake Captain Lyman Allyn (1797-1874)! Lyman Allyn was born in Montville, CT in 1797. At the age of 21 he moved to New London where he found whaling work under Captain Daniel Deshon. He soon became a captain himself, and was so successful that by 1834 he was running a fleet of whaling ships and even purchased the home of his former employer Daniel Deshon (the Deshon-Allyn House remains on our grounds to this day). Lyman Allyn had six children, the youngest of whom, Harriet, gave the money to create this museum in his honor.

#OTD in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope was deployed from the Space Shuttle Discovery. After years of planning and delays, Discovery lifted the Hubble Space Telescope into an orbit 350 miles above Earth.
In this image provided by @NASA in 2005, the #Hubble Space Telescope captures the Boomerang #Nebula . This reflecting cloud of dust and gas has two nearly symmetric lobes (or cones) of matter that are being ejected from a central star. Over the last 1,500 years, nearly one and a half times the mass of our sun has been lost by the central star of the Boomerang Nebula in an ejection process known as a bipolar outflow. The nebula’s name is derived from its symmetric structure as seen from ground-based telescopes. Hubble’s sharp view is able to resolve patterns and ripples in the nebula very close to the central star that are not visible from the ground. #APPhoto via @nasahubble

#OTD in 1058 Máel Coluim mac Donnchada was crowned King Malcolm III of Scotland. When he took to the throne the make up of the British Isles was very different - with Saxon kings still ruling what will one day become England and Wales. Malcolm was King of Scotland when William the Conqueror defeated King Harold’s Saxons at the famous Battle of Hastings in 1066, taking to the English throne as King William I.
Malcolm was of the House of Dunkeld which was the second great house to rule Scotland. His father was King Duncan I who was killed in battle fighting against the forces of future King Macbeth, but Malcolm III avenged his father’s death at the Battle of Lumphanan in 1057 by beating Macbeth’s forces (who himself was killed in action). Malcolm III earned himself the nickname of Canmore - deriving from the Gaelic “ceann mòr” meaning “great chief”. King Malcolm III would go on to reign for some 35 years, before being killed in battle - along with his son - by Norman forces in 1093 at the Battle of Alnwick in Northumberland.
Voices of Labor Today in Labor History – April 25th⠀
https://buff.ly/2UUuadv - ⠀
The New York Times declared the struggle for an eight-hour workday to be “un-American” and called public demonstrations for the shorter hours “labor disturbances brought about by foreigners.” Other publications declared that an eight-hour workday day would bring about “loafing and gambling, rioting, debauchery and drunkenness”. – 1886 IWW Marine Transport Workers began a West Coast… #Labor#OTD
#otd 49 years ago, April 25th 1969, the governor of South Carolina, Robert McNair, ordered over 1,000 National Guardsmen and SC state troopers to Charleston to break up the Charleston hospital workers strike. McNair also declared a state of emergency and instated a 9 to 5 curfew in the city. The strike was led by African American nurse aide from two city hospitals and began as a demand for better pay and fair working conditions. Unfair working conditions reached a breaking point when a white charge nurse denied an African American nurse aide access to a patient’s chart, in turn causes the African American nurse aide to refused to care for a patient unless allowed access to necessary medical information to carry out her tasks. The African American nurse aide was fired for insubordination.

#onthisdayinhistory Diane de Poitiers died aged 66. She was a French noblewoman and a prominent courtier at the courts of King Francis I of France and his son, Henry II. She became notorious as King Henry's chief mistress and in this role she wielded much influence and power at the French Court, which continued until Henry was mortally wounded in a tournament accident. It was during that tournament that his lance wore her favour (ribbon) rather than his wife's. #tudorfashion#maryqueenofscots#tudorcrown#reign#anneboleyn#catherinedemedici#henryviii#otd
Happy belated Birthday to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ♡
Yesterday, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 93rd birthday on Easter Sunday.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, future Queen Elizabeth II, was born at 02:40 (GMT) on April 21, 1926, during the reign of her paternal grandfather, King George V. Her father, the Duke of York (later King George VI), was the second son of the King. Her mother, the Duchess of York (later Queen Elizabeth), was the youngest daughter of Scottish aristocrat the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne. She was delivered by Caesarean section at her maternal grandfather's London house: 17 Bruton Street, Mayfair. She was baptised by the Anglican Archbishop of York, Cosmo Gordon Lang, in the private chapel of Buckingham Palace on May 29, and named Elizabeth after her mother, Alexandra after George V's mother, who had died six months earlier, and Mary after her paternal grandmother. Called "Lilibet" by her close family, based on what she called herself at first, she was cherished by her grandfather George V, and during his serious illness in 1929 her regular visits were credited in the popular press and by later biographers with raising his spirits and aiding his recovery.
Elizabeth's only sibling, Princess Margaret, was born in 1930. The two princesses were educated at home under the supervision of their mother and their governess, Marion Crawford. Lessons concentrated on history, language, literature and music. Crawford published a biography of Elizabeth and Margaret's childhood years entitled The Little Princesses in 1950, much to the dismay of the royal family. The book describes Elizabeth's love of horses and dogs, her orderliness, and her attitude of responsibility. Others echoed such observations: Winston Churchill described Elizabeth when she was two as "a character. She has an air of authority and reflectiveness astonishing in an infant." Her cousin Margaret Rhodes described her as "a jolly little girl, but fundamentally sensible and well-behaved". Continued in comments⬇️
