And now for the other Olympics, the Paralympics. The one that will not be widely televised. The one without live bands and beer-halls. The one where none of the sports are tied up with jingoistic nationalism. The one where the athletes are still amateurs and in it for the love of sport, have necessarily overcome adversities, and won't be getting any big endorement deals. Are those crickets I hear? Are you still convinced the Olympics are all about sport and the human spirit and that is what everyone was celebrating last night?
