And then, of course, he ONLY BLOODY WON AGAIN!
I've been to more than a few major sporting events. I've always said that nothing could ever top a last minute England try at Twickenham against France/Wales/any team from South of the Equator. Well this did. And it felt different too: Sit in the stand at Twickers and everyone's a rugby fan, everyone knows what that special moment is meant to feel like. Last night, it felt like the crowd was experiencing it for the first time, which they probably were in many cases. Al commented that women just don't have the same tribal experience of sport as many men do and I suspect that's much why it felt so special.
So. Inevitably. I took some pictures. Because personal snaps of this event will be like gold-dust in the future, mark my words.
Let's hope the closing ceremony is somewhere in the region of almost as good as Danny Boyle's triumph of a kick-off. I am slightly worried about the Spice Girls. I've always been slightly worried about the Spice Girls.
