....well not with my usual partner in crime, Nick "Muscles" but me best mucker who hooked us all up with some tickets for the boxing on Day 2 of the Olympics.

Well after a wicked opening ceremony and the Queen jumping out of a Helicopter, it was time to get involved ourselves.....Best mates wife was excited for the event....tagged early doors.....



Met up a bit earlier for a spot of dinner at Canary Wharf before jumping on the Jubilee line one stop to North Greenwich to try out a new attraction......



As we stepped out of the station, we could see where we were heading.....



Just had to stroll past the O2 to get to the cable cars.......



Entrance.......





£3.20 later.......legit to travel......



Drugs and trouble? No chance, not with Old Bill about......



View of the Thames and the Thames Barrier in the background.....



Looking back at the O2 and Canary Wharf.....



Cable car ride was pretty quick and before we knew it we were on our way to the arena. Been seeing more of these in the build up to the start of the games. Olympic Beemer.....



Rocking up the the ExCel and not a spreadsheet in site



For those of you that havent been to the ExCel before, its massive, it wasnt just Boxing being staged here......



Needed this bad boy to get myself in......



After some airport style checks we were in......



Just in case you didnt know what was going on in London......



Finally, some watch content......



Our boy, Josh Taylor was first up.....these boards reminded me of Daniel-San from Karate Kid.....



Took our seats and we were ready for the action.....(sorry, iphone and bright lights dont mix well )



During the fight......



Three rounds later.....we have a winner - Go on Son! Our lad wins....



The rest of the fights went by and for the US Ristis, a performance of note from your boy Errol Spence. He was a bit tasty to be fair and even got a USA, USA, USA, USA chant from the crowd.

We left a bit before the end but special mention to all the Olympic volunteers who were extremely helpful and friendly. Credit to the games. The event was well organised, slick and very enjoyable, Im sure this will be the same for the rest of the games. Makes you realise what a great place London is. Im sure you guys heading out for P-Day soon will get a taste for it......

Quick wrist shot to finish on the tube home.....



If you made it this far, as ever, thanks for looking. Have a great week everyone.
Cheers and Olympics.

There is just something special about the Olympics, hard to explain but I was in Atlanta for the 96 games and will never forget the experience.

I am going to Old Trafford tomorrow evening to watch women's football. USA vs PRK.

Not exactly a fixture or event I would have chosen but beggars can't be choosers.

I'll try and get a pic of my and my 372 tomorrow at the game!

Really good atmosphere despite the poor showing by GB.

Could not believe how they had been round the ground and taped over any non Olympic sponsors on the man utd pictures

Did see another chap in a panerai on the way in

The free buses were pretty handy too
