Even an old cynic like me -
The Olympics have a special place in my heart. Some people don't have a favourite sporting event - some love the World Cup - and some love other things. For me the number one has always been the Olympics. Which is one reason why I took the modern Olympic Games from 1896 as my first ever specialist subject on Mastermind. It's funny how things work out, isn't it. When London first won these games I always planned to stay at my Mum's, and watch the torch relay as it nears the stadium in Stratford. Then Mum moved away to Worthing last year which put the kibosh on that idea, and then what do I find - it's only going right past my own house !
Not that this whole thing has a lot to do with quizzing, despite the tenuous Mastermind connection, but hey, it's my blog !
