You can kill me now

    I've just spent the evening in the awesome Olympic Stadium at the end of the best Olympic Games I can remember in the best city in the world and seen Mo Farah, a true British hero, win his 2nd Gold of these Olympics, and Usain Bolt, the world's greatest athlete and the bloke you'd most want to party with, win his 3rd, all to the screams and applause of the loudest crowd I've ever known.

    So yeah, it won't ever get much better than that, you might as well kill me off now.

    How would you like to die - should it involve men running and people cheering?

    GO MO!






    And one of the best moments for me, I got the Jubilee line back from Stratford, and had a chat with this lovely young lady on the tube:


    That's Melissa Ingram from the New Zealand womens' swimming team - she was being 'mum' to the rest of the team as they were on their way to a night out near London Bridge. The other swimmers were being quite loud, but Melissa was very apologetic (I told her not to worry and just go out and have a good time) - she was chatty and polite and friendly and just completely fantastic, a real credit to the Olympic spirit and to her country. GO TEAM NZ

    I've never spoke to so many random people (sober) - I think I took it upon myself to take loads of peoples photo's for them so they could capture the moment together or in their full group. Still on a high about it!

    Bungle73 I was there, now I'm here

    I was there too! It was great! The crowd went wild for Mo and Bolt!

    I took some pictures too, but not as good as yours; I only had my iPhone with me: http://www.flickr.com/photos/62090585@N04/sets/72157631024504052/

    I didn't get home until after 12:30am, as Southeastern decided not to run any direct trains from Stratford International to home in the late evening. :mad:

    I did a fair bit of that too, it really was a great friendly atmosphere. One of the stewards was a bit concerned about people standing in the aisle to take pictures, but it was all good natured and didn't cause any problems, and in the end (just after Jamaica had come home for Gold in the 4 x 100) he turned to me and said 'Do ya know what mate? Fuck it, you have a good evening' and just let everyone get on with it.

    Bit of both, I was sat in the 2nd (top) tier but quite low down so a pretty good view, and had a 300mm zoom lens.

    I'm not doing it. We're moving house and we've got more than enough rubbish to shift without having to deal with your festering corpse.

    Yeah shitloads, I took about 900 all in yesterday (and another 150 at the marathon today, along with about 300 at Eton Dorney). I'll sort out some good ones and post them up later if you like.

    Minnie_the_Minx someinenhhanding menbag and me ah bollox

    Yes please. Definitely :cool:

    I don't just want the athletes though, I want the spectators and everything (although not all 900+150+300) :D

And then you know for a while you’ll miss the fact that you’re not ‘cause it’s almost scarier when you are, because at least when you’re not you’ve got something to cling to and then when you’ve gotten over that, then you’re gonna be fine."

    London's felt alive the last 2 weeks and that's rubbed off on me. Coming back from Wembley on Thurs night was just great, everybody talking on the tube - complete strangers - a different town.

    It's probably going to be later this week before I can do the killing. My hacksaw is nice and blunt now, so should be fun. I'll probably start with the potty mouth, it needs amateur surgery :)
