Wide_World_of_sports

The world of sports debuted on April 29, 1961 on ABC television. It was first intended to be on the air for one summer but in the fall of 1961 its popularity increased and it stayed. This show was intended to talk about two or three sports for ninety minutes on Saturday sports. These sports would be different than the regular ones you would find on American TV in those days; the sports would include rugby, hurling, badminton, rodeo, logger competitions and many more strange sports. The wide world of sports also featured Evil Knievel. He was very popular back then. The introduction was famous in those days and this is how it goes:

“Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of sport… the thrill of victory… and the agony of defeat… the human drama of athletic competition… this is ABC's Wide World of Sports!”

When cable TV came around the wide world of sports almost became no more. People would be able to subscribe to channels from other countries and get those sports. Nowadays ABC uses the term wide world of sports to describe as an umbrella term for all their weekend sports programming.

Our Father

In most classes in the 1960's that were still taught by nuns, it was customary to recite the prayer "our father" at the beginning of the day. For those who do not know how it goes, it goes as follows:

Our Father, Who art in heaven,prayer.JPG
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.


There are multiple versions of the “our father” prayer, but the one above is probably the most common and the one they used. The versions depend on what church you are in. For instance the Eastern Orthodox church has a different version than the Roman Catholic church.

Styles of the 1960's

When you think of the 1960’s and fashion most people think of the hippie trend, but that wasn’t until the late 1960’s. At the beginning of the decade it was more of the bouffant look from the 1950’s. The bouffant look was clothes with dull designs and colors that looked better on older people. During the mid 1960’s, mini skirts became really mini, people started to experiment with brighter colors and men started to grow their hair out. During the mid-late 1960’s psychedelic colors became popular and people began to start wearing clothing from their ethnic groups. During the late 1960’s the hippie trend took off. Dresses were touching the ground, people were wearing multi-colored clothes and men were growing their hair the longest ever.
