While doing a bit of research I came across the events from the year 1970; boy oh boy!

I was 6 years old at the time.

It was the first time I walked into the boys schoolyard at Holy Name. (Christmas morning)

1-Kent State shootings

2-Vietnam – Nixon sends home thousands of tropps

3-Vince Lombardi died

4-Jimi Hendrick died

5-Janis Joplin died

6-Knicks win championship over Lakers (“Win it for Willis”)

7-Apollo 13 launched but they brought it back.

8-First NYC marathon

9-Monday Night Football – first game

10-Tom Dempsey kicks a 63-yard field goal with half a foot

11-Two college football teams (Wichita State and Marshall) have their planes crash.

12-AFL-NFL merge

13-Maurice Stokes dies

14-Paul left the Beatles


What a year…

Number one song was “Bridge over Troubled Water.”
