“Americans did very little ski jumping until the television program Wide World of Sports began showing a promotional film snippet in which a ski jumper hurtles off the edge of the chute, completely out of control, with various important organs flying out of his body. Fitness buffs saw this and realized that any activity with such great potential for being fatal must be very good for you.”
