Guess The Year - Monokian Dentistry

Guess The Year


Can you guess the year?


Here’s the challenge…

First, we’ll show you six newspaper headlines from the same year.

Then, you guess what year they’re from.


No Googling!

  1. Affirmed won the triple crown
  2. The Bee Gees' Saturday Night Fever topped the Billboard album chart for 24 weeks.
  3. Sweden became first country to outlaw aerosol sprays
  4. Muhammad Ali beat Leon Spinks to secure the heavyweight boxing title for a third time.
  5. The Phillie Phanatic debuted as Phillies’ mascot.
  6. Harry Monokian opened a dental practice in South Jersey with the promise of delivering excellent dental care.

First some fun facts...

  • It would be 37 years before there was another triple crown winner (American Pharoah).
  • Saturday Night Fever continues to be the top selling soundtrack of all time.
  • The U.S. and other countries eventually followed Sweden’s lead; aerosol sprays are universally banned.
  • Ali is now recognized as the greatest heavyweight of all time.
  • The Phanatic – who continues to be the Phillies’ #1 fan – has become one of the premier mascots in professional sports.
  • Monokian Family and Cosmetic Dentistry continues to set the standard for excellent dental care in South Jersey
