Has anyone noticed the coincidence of the protagonists' Christian names of Chelseagate? John Terry and Wayne Bridge are at loggerheads, we're told, over their promiscuous past. I don't know the facts of the case - I don't suppose many do. But today the BBC reported Wayne's refusal to join the England football team with John in it. 'This team ain't big enough for the two of us.'
On another more cheerful sporting note, I've enjoyed some of the Olympic events, particularly the Ski Cross events - a mixture of skiing, racing and dodgems over jumps - and by contrast the Ice Dancing Final of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir - a breath-taking mixture of ballet and skating. That was incredibly expressive and passionate and skilful dancing to Mahler. Beautiful.
