100 Days To Go To the Olympics...

The great irony of course, is that if all those who have said they will disappear for the Olympic fortnight actually did so, it would spare the rest of us the chaos they so fear. But inevitably, they won’t. So when it does all go wrong, blame the moaners.

It's frustrating not getting tickets for what you want to see. As a footie fan I'm used to not getting tickets to watch my team play. Sure I get frustrated. But doesn't mean I think football should be not played! Yes, they could have allocated Olympics tickets better - given more to different people rather than a straight ballot but I guess the real problem was that they were oversubscribed by a factor of 10:1! Although more tickets on sale in a week or two I think. 1.5m football ones but 1m other ones too apparently. If you didn't get any in the first rounds - have another go!

And if you're not successful don't stay in watching telly - come down to Trafalgar Square with me!
