Ginger Sooty, GLOVE PUPPET OF DREAMS, will provide a daily round-up of events at the London 2012 Olympics that are, quite simply London 2012. Here is his update for Day 3.
Great to see Team GB win its first medals. Well done Girls! A Dutch rider won the cycling. I say fair play but demand a DRUG TEST. It was obvious the only way she could beat the plucky Brit was by downing a few pints of EPO before the start.
Generally the knees I’ve seen have been wonderful. Much better than previous Games.
The sailing started too. In the water. I listened to it on the Radio for a while. Doesn’t lend itself to radio does sailing.
MacDonald’s are offering their unused corporate seats to anyone who isn’t obese. That’s really kind of them!
Anyway there are a couple of sports I think you should look out for today.
1. Synchronised Sarcasm - A great chance for Ecuador to medal today. Their team of Martinez, Garcia and Pollyputthekettleoncahoutec told me yesterday that their only concern was the team from Lesotho, “Because like they are really, really good.”
I wonder if they were being sarcastic? They are cheeky pan piping chappies!
2. Five Metre Prone Ham Sandwich Making - A really open contest, possibly too close to call. The New Zealander, Rod Pelvis is the defending champion and his reverse butter spread backhand may give his great rival, Ireland’s Tony O’Chutney problems.
O’Chutney told me, “He may have the reverse butter spread backhand but I’ve perfected the split tin tap down and contingent slice. Bring it on!”
Enjoy The Games! Sooty.
