As many of you know, I attended two events at the London 2012 Olympics. This picture was taken at the Greenwich arena, during a break in the men’s bronze medal round for basketball.
It was a riveting game. The score, during the first two quarters, was never more than 6 points apart. During the last two quarters, it was never more than 4 and during the last 5 minutes of the last quarter, never more than 2 — so a total nail-biter, with the Russians winning.
Please read the comment below by my friend David Joyce. The organization of the Olympics is something I failed to mention here and that was an oversight on my part. The games were wonderfully organized and the army personnel looking out for us were unfailingly polite and helpful. I felt very safe and I did not have to wait in line for a thing. Well done London!
