Guru expressed his disgust for the procession of the torch, or “stupid torch” as he wittily wrote in Guru hates the Olympics, in his latest hard-hitting blog. Guru also wrote, in the self-same blog, of his respect and admiration for the great Michael Johnson, a man who’s furnished many athletics fans with treasured Olympics memories.
Well, it seems the Olympic Committee was reading and was so angered by such an eminent public figure as Guru expressing his disdain for the torch that they’ve decided to destroy all of Guru’s Olympics memories by having Michael Johnson dress up in white pyjamas and run around Stonehenge carrying the stupid torch. Guru refuses to let this revolting spectacle destroy his memories of Michael Johnson and his gold-spiked brilliance, and has chosen to believe that while the great man trotted around the big stones with the big torch there was a team of snipers lining the Wiltshire countryside with their sights set on him.
Even if this were not the case, Guru is heartened to see that the world’s greatest ever 400m runner seems to be suppressing, with considerable difficulty, his amusement at becoming part of what looks for all the world like a cheap Michael Jackson video. Watch from 0.44 to see his noble efforts to hide a smirk.
