Special OCHO deals on Training & Books to Celebrate Excel Being on ESPN!

Bill has been joking that one day "Excel could be a sport in the Olympics" for nearly two decades. He is so psyched to have Excel on ESPN. "This is the first step towards XLOOKUP being in the 2060 Summer Olympics!". All of these special prices are available August 4, 2022 through August 9, 2022.

The Excel All-Star battle will appear on ESPN8 THE OCHO (tune to ESPN2 on your cable system). There should be three showings (but the replays could be pre-empted by another sporting event that runs long):

  • Friday August 5, 2022 at 5 AM Eastern. (2 AM Pacific. 10 AM in London.)
  • Sunday August 7, 2022 at 9AM Eastern. (6 AM Pacific, Noon in London.)
  • Monday August 8 (8/8!), 2022 at 11:30 PM Eastern. (8:30 PM Pacific - Prime Time, Baby! And 4:30 AM Tuesday in London).

If you don’t have access to ESPN-2, the event should be live-streamed on ESPN Player website.

I sponsored the ESPN broadcast (check out my commercial here), and to celebrate, I’ve come up with six different promotions.
