3 Things I Remember About: 1972

This is the 8th part in a series.

mcgovern(1) I remember the Nixon/McGovern presidential election, primarily because my sister and the older kids I knew all had McGovern stickers and campaign buttons.

(2) The 1972 Summer Olympics were the first olympics that I really paid attention to, as a result of both the bad (the murder of some of the Israeli team members) and the good (Mark Spitz’s 7 gold medals).

(3) I went to see The Godfather with my sister and some boyfriend of hers at the beach. I thought the horse head in bed was cool, but the naked girl (my first time to see one in a movie) was cooler.
