Olympic Irritations

So we now know the Olympics is almost upon us – why? Well the torch relay has started, a 70 day journey around the country, giving people a chance to see it pass by. A fantastic event – especially for those lucky enough to carry it. Sad thing is we’re only on Day 2 and I for one am totally disillusioned with the whole thing.

The relay is named ‘our moment to shine’, but just why have some people been chosen? Take Dan Lobb from ITV’s Daybreak, a failed proffesional tennis player, now a TV presenter ( a bad one!)  I’ve nothing against the guy, but just why is he having a chance, apparently quite a few people have got ‘media’ places – why. Nominations were meant to be for people who have gone that extra mile, overcome massive hurdles – real people. Then there’s the issue of overseas people getting a go. Where I live, two of the people carrying the torch are Norwegian – still living in Norway – why are they getting a chance??? Don’t tell me we ran out of British nominees!! Now some muppet who is due to carry the flame on Monday is selling it on Ebay – £100,500.00 at the minute – with an hour to go. I have asked if the money’s going to charity – but no reply yet!

On the plus side there are some genuine people who deserve their chance, so I’ll focus on them and pray that the one carrying the torch past the end of my road is a real one……………..

A bit annoyed

In a better mood tomorrow

Bring it on
