More seriously, this Mexico-Senegal game is a blast to watch.

I honestly don't think too many people care. Plus the match clashes with the conclusion of the heptathalon featuring Princess Of Hearts & Tabloid Heroine, Our Brave Jess, People's Champion.

While everyone else in this Brazil - Honduras match is playing football, Neymar is going for the gold in diving.

Still ridiculously fun to watch him play.

This time delay sometimes pisses me off. Of course I am actually recording and watching things even later but still!

Olympics have taken over my life. I am okay with this.

A few years ago I watched Galen Rupp run a 10k at a big track meet down in Eugene. It was pretty cool to watch him win the first American medal in the 10k since 1964.

That match was so tense to watch. Good, though.

Also, a fellow from Afghanistan won a bronze medal in taekwondo, which strikes me as pretty great.

Didn't see much of the closing ceremony but what I did see, or hear to be more accurate, was good. Only caught the first hour, mind. But still, Ray Davies!! Did we find room for Jarvis Cocker? He was apparently part of the organising committee.

Anyway, the entire event has been a pleasure from beginning to end. I've heard no negativeopinions around the bar, and there's nowt more sullen and negative than a British drunk. (Belgian Biebers notwithstanding).

For over two weeks I wore a Union Jack wristband. And I write 'Northerner' as my nationality on my census form.

And now football ... kinda like going for McDonald's after eating healthy salads for two weeks.
