I Know Where I Was 50 Years Ago Today (How Often Does That Happen?)

January 12, 1969.  Super Bowl III.  The New York Jets defeat the Baltimore Colts 16-7.  50 years ago today.  My life peaked that year and has followed a gentle grade downhill since. But gentle, with some upturns here and there.

We watched the game on a 19″ color TV!!! at my Aunt Ida’s apartment on 5th Avenue. That was plenty fancy in 1969.

That year my football team won a championship, my Mets won too and then in 1970 the Knicks were champs.

I was one arrogant, entitled asshole of a 9 year old.
