Pictured: The fuckin’ Olympics

With Olympic fever gripping the nation, and news of the not-going-to-be-used sponsor’s tickets being “confiscated” and sold to members of the public who can actually be arsed to show up, I thought I’d have a go at buying some. I was also inspired by watching the 100m final, and the incredible atmosphere and jubilation of Usain Bolt’s lap of honour. Soo I looked into it, and made a purchase… I’m not going to the Olympic Stadium, though, but Wembley, to see these ladies:

Who are currently the Women’s World Cup holders, and who are going to SMASH the Yanks in the final! Can’t wait! I’m gonna have the whole day off and troll around the Olympic park, watching events on the big screens. Gonna go down the Japan Centre to get a Japanese flag and “kamikaze” headband too. It’d be nice to go to an event in the proper stadium, and see the flame, but I spent ‘a bit’ on the tickets for this match, and will have to save every penny. Especially if my holiday in Japan does convince me to go and work as a language monkey.

Mind you, Tokyo is a candidate city for the 2020 Olympics – and how could they not be held in Japan? Great sailing, loads of huge arenas (the Tokyo Big Sight deals with Comiket twice a year, and that has millions through the doors – the guys there know their stuff), massive investment in sport (Japan’s elementary schools have facilities baseball and small football teams in Britain would kill for) and, of course, the best public transport in the world. Want a “green games”? Driving in Tokyo is fucking insane – at the city centre events damn near 100% of the spectators will come on trains.

Of course, If I do move to Japan, it’ll have to be forever, and so I’d have to become a naturalised citizen. I could potentially manage that by 2020 – and would have a second Olympics “on my doorstep” in the space of 8 years! Make it happen, IOC! I wanna watch Japan’s women get golden football medals more than once!
