I Missed This Show
31 October 2003 | by (Ottawa) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this sports show with great keenness. It is hosted by the one of the pioneers of sportscasting, Jim McKay. Although McKay is often recognized as Olympics commentator, this is perhaps his finest work for ABC Sports.

I remember McKay's words, "Travelling the world to bring you a variety of sports, the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat - this is ABC's Wide World Sports". It gives you fascinated peek into all kinds of athletes and sports events and it was well done.
