** Vinko was competing in a ski jump event in 1970 when he spectacularly wiped out. Amazing enough, he suffered only minor cuts. The show would, every so often, switch out "The Thrill Of Victory" to represent any current winning athlete or team. But they kept Vinko's wipeout for nearly their entire history to represent "The Agony of Defeat" (they changed it in the mid-Nineties to a Indy race car smash-up).

** Being a Yugoslavian, he never knew that he had achieved [[MemeticMutation infamy]] in the United States until 1981 when the show held an anniversary party and invited him. He got an ''autograph request from MuhammadAli''.

*** In a bit of irony, Vinko suffered a minor car accident while on his way to be interviewed by ABC's Terry Gannon.

* FollowTheLeader -- NBC and CBS both had their own versions of Wide World, as well as several international versions. ESPN, in it's early days, was basically "Wide World: The Network".
