Tabloid has noted that the free-wheeling bandwagon of complimentary tickets to Olympic events didn't extend to the Paralympics. Shame on you vendors, distributors and other miscellaneous corporates (who still actually believe a journalist's favours can be bought with trinkets and trips) for so blatantly ignoring the second largest sporting event in the world this year.
Not one of the big name companies that invited everyone bar Christopher Skase (but including Peter Reith, Mal Colston and Sam Newman) to the Olympics has backed up with packages for the Paras.
With many events selling out with the same fervour as those held to celebrate the achievements of able-bodied athletes, a whole community of freeloaders are left without tickets to any events. No wheelchair rugby (an awesome game) tickets, no wheelchair basketball (how do these guys and gals do it?) tickets and no athletics tickets (ever seen a blind man run? Inspirational).
Meanwhile, Tabloid has noted that many of our good colleagues over at ARN missed invitations to Olympic events where its competitors did not. The good team at ARN tell us all can be rectified with a series of invitations to the Melbourne Cup which is just around the corner.
