no idea if this will work
saw the olympic torch this morning. good stuff. nice to see it in REDCAR AND CLEVELAND.
it didn't work.
m aybe i shouldve called it the running olympic torch thread
thats a joke see
and then i got stuck in traffic behind the olympic torch when i was coming home from work in HINDLEY. it travelled 10 miles in 10 hours or so. i was pretty psyched both ways.
my friend once did a rap about HINDLEY GREEN in a school assembly. H-I-N-D-L-E, WHY HINDLEY GREEN IS THE PLACE TO BE.
my dad lived above the hairdressers next door to the top spot for a few years when i was young, top spot is called *summat to ate* now. ha.
i was gonna buy a house in HINDLEY before i lost my job. was a three bed semi for 48 grand. so cheap.
it was in JOE'S CITY the other day. he started a thread about it.
my dad's friend claims that he went out to see it in a place where they thought nobody would and it went past on a public bus. I do not believe this
you know what definitely did happen - getting hi-fives off policemen on motorbikes. My mam did.
loads of people turn up to watch the rich dude who isn't even an athlete!
with Alan Robson & Denise Welch catching him at the bottom.
so on the lined road, I ran along it a bit with my chips aloft shouting chiiiiiipppps! one couple smiled. (I only did it a little bit, I didnt make an exhibition of myself)
Someone gave me a little thing to wave......which I did, its not quite a flag, instead its 4 streamers of material on a stick
