British sports people lie back and smell the profits

With the Olympics, and the inevitable litany of British failures, approaching, Downtime felt it worth easing the pain with a pre-emptive celebration of our national character.

The good news comes from California where the British team have been crowned winners of the 2008 Championship Gaming Series.

The 10-member team share £252,000, which is £252,000 more than they would have won in any Olympic event. In times of recession, it is no good being really fast, or strong. It won’t pay the gas bills.

Do we really need the annoying adverts complete with audio?

Makes it hard to check Downtime 'discretely' in the office!
