…Take A Seat
If you watched the Olympics this weekend, you may have noticed something odd about many of the events. No one was watching.
Even at popular events such as swimming and gymnastics, there was a noticable lack of fans in the stands.
It’s not due to a lack of enthusiasm. On Saturday, over 1 million spectators lined the course of the mens 155-mile bike race.
Needless to say, the hundreds of thousands who failed to obtain tickets through the complicated lottery system are a bit peeved (and rightly so).
With more than 7 million tickets sold, it’s hard to imagine that any seats would be empty.
The finger of blame has been pointed everywhere from event organizers to advertisers. Yet, no one seems to know who the mysterious “no show” ticket holders are.
To temporarily solve the problem, seats were given to British troops (security) and school children (non-threats to security).
However, the mystery ticket holders remain at large. If they’re looking for someone to take those tickets off your hands, I can think of a few.
