retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Keith Jackson, who pretty much personified college football while working as a sportscaster for ABC from the early 1950s to 2006, with his signature phrase, “Whoa, Nellie!”, passed away last Friday. He was 89.

The New York Times writes that in addition to college football, “Jackson worked at 10 Summer and Winter Olympics and on ‘ABC’s Wide World of Sports.’ He was the play-by-play man for the inaugural season of N.F.L. ‘Monday Night Football’ and was at the microphone for baseball, pro and college basketball, and auto racing.”

Whoa, Nellie, indeed. What a career.
