Ordinary Londoners - No 9 in a series

Shot with Olympus E510

Game on! Courtesy of London Open House I was among the first to go on a tour of the 2012 Olympics site. I also had the privilige of meeting Daley Thompson, Olympic gold athlete, all round good guy and an ordinary Londoner. He has associated himself with these games from the very beginning and has put his efforts into helping sport at the grass roots. This is a Londoner we can all be proud of.

I'd like to take this opportunity to say a few words to those who don't think these games are a good thing, First, consider whether your view makes you the sort of person who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. Then there is one simple fact: when the games are over and done with, you are really going to look very silly. Nothing personal, but I'm sorry, it's true.

Mr Geezer has been doing some stirling Open House coverage, my small contribution will be tomorrow.

The Ordinary Londoners Series: No 1, No 2, No 3, No 4 No 5 No 6 No 7.No 8.

Lucky to get a photo of him. Didn't realise he was a Londoner.

I'm fairly non-comittal about the Olympic Games but I'd definitely say that Manchester benefitted from staging the Commenwealth Games -- whether that same sense will carry over on this bigger arena remains to be seen of course.
