….And The Agony of Defeat.

It’s too bad Jim McKay is gone.  Actually, it’s too bad ABC’s Wide World of Sports is gone because I have a new opening sequence for them.

You may recall that during the show’s iconic open, McKay would narrate “The Thrill of Victory……and the Agony of Defeat!” all while a scene of ski jumper Vinko Bogataj is replayed falling off the edge of the jump.

If McKay and “Wide World” were still around today, I have a new failure to replace Bogataj and it comes (appropriately enough) from the world of skiing and (perhaps more appropriate) from the French, masters of fail.
