Celebrating the 2012 London Olympic Games
The Olympics have indeed brought chaos to London: Traffic has ground to a halt, terrorist plots loom large and the rich have fled the city for sunnier shores. Now, however, on the eve of the opening of the Games, I do believe we should embrace the spirit of the occasion with gusto.
My only interaction with the event to date has been to observe countless BMWs and officials whizzing around but I am told that tomorrow there will be a spectacular happening at the opening ceremony. Directed by Danny Boyle, there will supposedly be a staged stunt involving Daniel Craig and a stand-in for The Queen.
My friends Rex Leyland and Leo Mason are amongst those taking an active role in the proceedings. Leyland has volunteered as a marshal and Mason is one of the official photographers. Both will undoubtedly experience a truly historic experience.
We at The Steeple Times wish all involved great success. May the Games begin.
