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.
1) 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.
