“Doug Wilson revisits a time when ABC’s Wide World of Sportswas must-see TV every weekend for millions of Americans. If some of these stories seem made up—trust me—they’re not. I was there for many of them and would walk away thinking, ‘You can’t make this stuff up.’” It was great fun to witness and just as much fun to read about.”

—Al Michaels, Emmy Award-winning NBC sportscaster, previously with ABC Sports for three decades
