1975 Memories: 40 Years Ago Brings Back Memories Plus A Warriors World Championship
1975: I was 13.
The Warriors first NBA Championship (I don't want to jinx but I smell another one coming) I recall a lot of things happening. President Ford is the target of two assassination attempts; San Francisco and Sacramento, Sarah Jane Moore and Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme come into the nation's lexicon.
Disco rules the world. Van McCoy's "Do The Hustle" is #1 and Barry White's "My Everything" is played on almost every jukebox. "When Will I See You Again" serenades the radio waves. KC and the Sunshine Band do a little dance, make a little love and get down tonight.
Jaws, the first long-line movie from Steven Spielberg debuts and scares the hell out of people.
The "Win" button is born (Whip Inflation Now).
Patty Hearst is found on Morse Street in San Francisco in September; so too, Bill and Emily Harris from the SLA. The Giants are awful and the A's fail to win their 4th consecutive World Series. The Pittsburgh Steelers win their first Super Bowl.
