#OnThisDay in 2003 , @manchesterunited ( 4 ) @realmadrid ( 3 )
در چنین روزی در سال 2003 ، #رئال_مادرید در دیدار برگشت لیگ قهرمانان مقابل #منچستریونایتد 4 بر 3 شکست خورد اما با توجه به برد 3 بر 1 بازی رفت در مجموع 6 بر 5 به دور بعد صعود کرد ، در این دیدار رونالدو موفق به هتریک شد.
#OnThisDay: April 23rd 2003: #ManchesterUnited and #RealMadrid contested the 2nd Leg of their UEFA #ChampionsLeague Quarter Final at #OldTrafford during the 2002/03 season!
The defending European Champions came to Manchester carrying a commanding 3-1 lead from the 1st Leg. #SirAlexFerguson's side would need to win by 2 clear goals in order to keep alive their dream of playing in the May 28th final which was to be held at Old Trafford. Furthermore, #United were undefeated in Europe at home since a shock October 2001 defeat against Deportivo La Coruna, and were unbeaten in the Premiership during 2003.
It would take just 12 minutes for the visitors to mark their authority on the contest with their latest #Galactico: #Ronaldo opening the scoring. The competitions top scorer: Ruud #VanNistelrooy would level proceedings just before half time. Just 5 minutes following the restart; Ronaldo would restore Vicente #DelBosque's sides lead; kicking off a frantic 9 minute spell of the game. #MUFC would quickly respond, and got the score back to 2-2 through an Ivan #Helguera own goal. With the hour mark approaching, Ronaldo would score a famous hat-trick before withdrawn to rapturous applause from the home and away fans alike.
David #Beckham would steal the show in the remaining 20 minutes of the game, however the England captain's brace was in vain. To their credit, United would win 4-3 on the night, however it was #LosBlancos who prevailed 6-5 on aggregate to the semi-finals.

It’s Turner’s birthday and Shakespeare’s deathday (& maybe birthday) sooo here’s Shakespeare Cliff, Dover by Turner (c.1825). Popularly associated with the imagined cliff in King Lear where birds “wing the midway air”, dizzying and sublime.
London library posted this at 0247am “Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” Great Romantic poet #WilliamWordsworth and the country's longest serving Poet Laureate died #onthisday 1850 aged 80. April 23rd. https://t.co/pickuW5cb3
On this day, April 23, 1867, William E. Lincoln patented his zoetrope. By spinning a drum with viewing slits, successive static images inside the drum seem to move. The faster the drum is spun the smoother the animation appears. GIFs could be considered a form of modern zoetrope successor.
#OnThisDay in 1915, Waller and Shoal Creeks overflowed their banks causing floods in Austin that resulted in the deaths of twenty people and property losses reaching hundreds of thousands of dollars. "Houses by the dozen" were demolished or swept downstream. Newspaper accounts recorded that 1,000 residents were made homeless by the floodwaters that rose during the night. Entire families were marooned by the storm when the houses that sheltered them were ripped from their foundations and swept downstream. One family survived their precarious ride when their house, floating down Shoal Creek, hit a large tree. They were able to crawl out of the house and into the high branches, from which they were rescued. Most were not so lucky. A six-block stretch of Lamar Blvd. from 6th to 12th Street known as the Ruiz Street Flats was especially hard hit, with ten dead. All nine houses on Wood Street, a short street just north of West Sixth and West of Shoal Creek, were destroyed. Gladys McCarty Shearer, a 7-year-old resident of Wood Street, remembered that night in a reminiscence she wrote and sent to the Austin History Center 74 years later. Her family struggled to escape to higher ground: "Current so swift it was necessary to fight for every inch to keep from being knocked down. Added to this was the debris being washed down against us - all sorts of furniture, logs, animals, plus everything else of every kind and size, but mostly large. We could see these coming by the angry, fantastic flashes of lightning on an otherwise very dark night… " Residents came to the rescue by opening their houses to the homeless, providing food, clothing and furniture.

#OnThisDay in 1915, the Battle of Gravenstafel was ending in World War I. It was the first engagement of the Second Battle of Ypres in which German forces were fighting for control of the Flemish town in western Belgium after the First Battle of Ypres had ended in a stalemate the previous fall. It was also the first mass use of poison gas on the Western Front by Germany, and the first time a former colonial force (the First Canadian Division) defeated a European power (the German Empire) on European soil.
