The Year Was 1972…
In 1972, Richard Nixon was President of the United States, Last Tango in Paris was hot at the box office, and Grease made its first Broadway appearance. In 1972, you could feed a family of four at McDonald’s for under $4.00…if you could find a McDonald’s.
And in 1972, in the little town of Comanche, Texas, Nancy Ormsby was voted Basketball Sweetheart at Comanche High School while Rhonda Lubke was named Football Sweetheart and DAR Girl.
