British Diving Team vs LMFAO

Behind the scenes at Wimbledon

Here come the Olympics! As I’ve talked about before (focussing mainly on the HIDEOUS uniform) I will be doing my bit and volunteering at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Based at Wimbledon in the press team, my duties are a little vague but if my training session this week was anything to go by, I should get up close and personal with lots of tennis, which I am over the moon about.

Now and Next – A Summer of sport

With the Olympics and Paralympics fast approaching in the diamond jubilee year, the GB bandwagon is going strong. High street retailer Next have got involved with the creation of some scarves for supporters, on sale in stores with all profits being donated to the British Olympic Association.

The scarf for the paralympics is below, and the blog challenge is to style it.

What I really wanted to do was put it on my cat Dylan so that he could wear it as a cape, but unfortunately Dylan is both against being manhandled and clearly not very patriotic… seriously, imagine the scarf on this cat, epic! (picture courtesy of ‘my cat wears clothes’)

With Dylan letting the side down I was forced to photograph how I would actually wear the scarf…

To read all about it head over to the wonderful Romeo Says So blog.

WHY ON EARTH AM I EXPECTED TO WEAR THIS MONSTOSITY OF A UNIFORM AS A VOLUNTEER? I’m beginning to take this personally…
