THE GOLDEN YEAR
When Sports Illustrated began publication one year ago this week, it surveyed the world of sport it was entering and declared it to be in a new golden age. "Granted," wrote Gerald Holland at that time, "it cannot yet match—man for man, woman for woman—all the super-stars of the 1920s and before. Still, for world-wide interest and participation, for huge crowds and vast audiences, for smashed records and astonishing performances by outsiders and underdogs, this new golden age in scores of ways outstrips and outdazzles them all." Now, at the completion of the first year of publication, Holland takes a look back and a look around to see whether the thesis has stood the test of 12 months' time
