3 Things I Remember About: 1973

It’s time to start up my 3 Things series again.

Here’s the list so far.  I started with the year 1965, because that’s the first year I can remember 3 things about.


Other than finally becoming a teenager, here are 3 things I remember about 1973.

billiejeanking1) I remember watching Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in a televised tennis match held at the Astrodome, where I had been a few years earlier.  Little did I know that I would one day call Houston home.

2) I made Eagle Scout on November 26 of that year.  I got a little press coverage since I was only 13 years and one month old.  Say what you will about the Boy Scouts, but I learned a lot of stuff from scouting that I still apply on a regular basis.

3) I remember watching Secretariat win the Triple Crown, and wondering what a secretariat was.  His Belmont win is simply the most dominating performance I have ever seen, in any sport.  By far.

Thanks to Mike and and Jeff for commenting on my last post.  And thanks to Richard for pointing me to David, from whom I borrowed this great idea.
