Lord Coe smiled

Lord Sebastian Coe, onetime formidable Olympic athlete and nowtime leader of the 2012 London Olympic Committee, just happens to work in the same building as a reader (and friend) of this website. Too good an opportunity to miss? Too right!

So, whilst Sebby and Steve were in the lift together last week, Steve dropped details of this particular Olympic bid into conversation. Pleasingly, instead of instructing his lawyers to "have a word", he actually smiled. I'm no lawyer, but clearly a smile is tacit recognition of a good idea, one that is implicitly supported by the organising committee of the 2012 games? Or am I reading too much into it?

My next rather ambitious bid is to see if Lord Coe would care to wear a 2012OC badge, as available from my online store. I'd be happy to reciprocate with a 2012London badge.

Happy Christmas Seb.

  • You have a riveting web log
    and undoubtedly must have
    atypical & quiescent potential
    for your intended readership.

    Happy New Year,
