We were fascinated with pet rocks, mood rings and playing Pong. Something a little higher on the excitement scale, "Jaws" became the first Summer blockbuster movie, "Saturday Night Live" debuted on our TVs and Mohamed Ali fought Joe Frazier, for the third time, in a heavyweight title bout dubbed the "Thrilla in Manilla".
