He started wearing goggles after having trouble with his eyes getting accidentally hit or scratched by other players fighting for rebounds. He was 7'2" tall, so he was a bit more vulnerable to getting hit in the face by shorter players' stretching their hands up to reach for the ball.

I remember waiting for that month's Tiger Beat Magazine to come out and how excited I was the month the centerfold featured Khomeini! When I found out his dream date would involve prayer, oppression and the subjugation of women, I melted!

Bee Gees lead singer with brothers Robin and Maurice. Arguably, the biggest disco group ever. Saturday Night Fever ring a bell.

I can't believe Dick Clark only has 41%. He's so iconic in music that the New Year's Eve Time Square show is stilled called Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin Eve.

Not that I had trouble with Kate Hudson's mother, but the first thing I said to myself was she probably belongs to the 60s or the 80s. She wasn't nearly as visible in the 70s. Didn't realize that Laugh In lasted that far into the 70s and completely forgot about the Chevy Chase movies and Sugarland Express.
