Once or twice a week I put together a linkfest with some of the best charting and technical analysis being done throughout the main stream and social media. We are literally….
“ Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of Charts… the thrill of victory… and the agony of defeat… the human drama of Capital Market Competition… This is Wide World of Charts! ”
This week marks the 50th anniversary of ABC’s Wide World of Sports. The precursor to ESPN. Believe it or not, the show was the first to air coverage of Wimbledon, The Indianapolis 500, NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, the Daytona 500, Little League World Series, Triple Crown, the US Open Championship, and many more sporting events that had not reached the living room. Announcers that were featured ranged from Howard Cosell and Al Michaels to Mickey Mantle and Reggie Jackson. They really were ahead of their time.
No matter how hard I try, I don’t think that I’ll ever be able to make the impact on the charting community that Wide World of Sports was able to make on sports fans. But at least I have something to strive for.
