"Olympic Spectacle"

John just forwarded me this article by Mark Steyn. Every sentence has me laughing. A sample:

In 21st-century London, traffic moves at fewer miles per hour than it did before the internal-combustion engine was invented without the added complication of fleets of Third World thug bureaucrats and the permanent floating crap game of transnationalist freeloaders being dumped on its medieval street plan.

How are you all coping, Habs?

I do have to say that I’m enjoying the Olympics from this side of the Atlantic and have only been getting about five hours of sleep per night. The Opening Ceremonies, although rather strange at times, had me quite choked up. The Queen, perhaps, went a little far allowing the skydiving scene. Rowan Atkinson was hilarious.

Anyway, back to the TV. I’ve just finished watching yesterday’s events. Now to start on today’s. It’s lucky John’s such a geek. We have the hard-drive capacity to record everything throughout the day and keep it as long as we like.

  1. The most impressive moment for me so far was in the women’s keirin cycling when, well before the end of the race, Victoria Pendleton produced a sudden surge of speed in the back straight to go from about 5th to 1st. She then held the lead to the end. I’m not a fan of cycling but that move of hers was so classy.
