n November 1982, after three years and 33 lively and highly regarded issues, Inside Sports magazine was put to sleep. The abrupt ending dealt a harder blow to one individual than to any other: John A. Walsh, the magazine’s founding editor and the man who had personally persuaded legendary Washington Post Chairman Katharine Graham to launch it. Now, despite all... For the next few months, then years, he knocked around among positions that friends in media found for him, frequently changing jobs. In the years leading up to his stewardship of Inside Sports, Walsh had worked with more than 30 media companies — including Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Washington Post and CBS Sports — for periods ranging from six months to five years.

As the bell chimed the teams raced off to capture their winnings images. Steve and Chantelle hoped to be inspired by iron work in Melbourne's CBD district, Brad and Dale went back to nature in a garden, the twins took on industrial chic with a light bulbs in a floating, metal basket and Kyal and Kara headed to their... As they snap pictures of the bush, waves and cracks in the ground, the blonde babe says: 'I want something from the natural environment. Throwing their mercy at the graphic designers feet the teams all raced to create a sale-able graphic image, ever-hopeful Steve said: 'Can you just make something that will make us win.
