Ah, The Daily Sport, that tabloid tell-all tattler with the most bizarre stories on the planet and the cheek to blatantly show the knickers of wannabe starlets is no more. RIP Sport! Did I cry, damn skippy I did as when working in the UK it amounted to about 40-52% of my income. Its demise was the main reason I stayed in Ireland for as long as I did, losing the will to live and contemplating thoughts of homicide, with longing looks cast at wheely bins as a means to dispose of the bodies should the need arise. It of course was the Easter holidays, which accounted for the quietness of the over all tour.
So, I turned my UK phone back on and as I was listening to the voice mail, I heard a glorious thing! The Sport, is apparently back. Well, not completely back, but in a resurrected form as such, it will only be available on Sunday, stay on the stands till Tues, and the ads will cost 45 Pound for what is in essence a whole weeks advertising. Not bad, considering it used to be 30 pound a day! The distribution is limited as well to only the UK, not NI yet!
Now I like everyone out there knows that there is a certain seedy element to the Sport, but it was necessary in certain markets, where access to the internet wasn’t an option-the trail it leaves. The Sport has the advantage of being easily disposable, available around the country, cheap, and once you were done, no one need know.
So, I am looking forward to have this second avenue of advertising, because as another escort has said, it would be silly to place all your advertising eggs in one basket. Just as the Sport almost disappeared, so can the internet advertising we all take for granted go the same way.
The Sunday Sport returns May 8 to newsstands. I have charged my phone, and am eagerly awaiting the first : ‘I have seen your ad in the paper, can I have some details?”
