    I'll be using the Tube, so it'll hopefully not take that long.

    I may, however, die of heat exhaustion/lack of oxygen and have my wallet/phone/organs nicked.

    I have just discovered Australian Women's track star Michelle Jenneke, and her lovely warm up routine.

    I'll have to be subtle about how eager I appear to watch this event around the missus.

    Funny as that'd be, it's not true.

    My wife catches me watching any women's sports for even a minute and she figures it all out.

    The girl behind her seems to be hypnotized.

    One day into the games and the first diplomatic incident has happened during the womens footy at Hampden last night.

    Whoops.

    The chap who took the picture is the brother of a mate of mine and he's found it very odd to wake up today and find himself being mentioned in the top story on breakfast news.

    The second major incident is Joe Allen of Swansea City with 8 Welsh caps to his name being classed as English in the official Team GB programme.

    Mitt Romney does his best for Anglo-American relations and the first shock of the games has happened this afternoon when Japan beat Spain at Hampden in the mens footy.

    I didn't have any problems myself, but I was on the Northern line and before midday.

    I believe she uses the Central Line and this was after lunch.

    Also, there's been a brief set of clips of the rehearsals of Danny Boyle's opening ceremony released.

    It's a bit Carry On.

    Though Underworld are doing the soundtrack for when the nations march out. That should be fun.
