It all happened in 1995.
OJ Simpson was found innocent, the Oklahoma City bombing devastated the country, and the DVD was announced.
What local Adams County buffs may remember to be just as significant, however, was the last time that Bellmont defeated Homestead on the gridiron.
On a rainy, slippery field at Worthman Stadium, the Bellmont Braves pulled out an unlikely upset of the juggernaut Homestead Spartans in overtime, 14-13, a feat that had not occurred in 17 years of football.
Tonight the Braves welcome Homestead to Worthman Stadium with a kick-off of around 7 p.m. The webcast of tonight's game will begin with a pre-game show around 6:40 p.m.

An old point of contention between the Adams County Commissioners and the Adams County Council reared its head during discussions between the two entities prior to the start of scheduled budget hearings on Tuesday morning.
When is too much really too much?
That question arose at Tuesday night's city council meeting, spurred by Councilman Matt Dyer, who addressed a photo floating around the council chambers.
The photo showed an enormous pile of trash piled along the sidewalk at a home on Walnut St. for last week's heavy trash pickup.
City Operations Manager Jeremy Gilbert said it cost the city $94 to get rid of the trash at the transfer station.
The United Way of Adams County will hold its annual Community Market Day from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. on Tuesday at locations in Decatur and Berne. Five percent of the sales from Community Markets during that time will be donated to the United Way. Call the agency at 728-2056 to volunteer.
NEW HAVEN — The Squaws put up a sweep against the fiesty New Haven Bulldogs on the road Thursday night winning 25-15, 25-13, 15-15.
The conference win felt more like a tune-up game for tomorrow's tournament in Ohio where they will face Henry Clay and Gilmore Academy in their pool. Based on the outcome of pool B, Bellmont could face Adams Central for a second time this season.
