well, why not Bradley Wiggins exactly? there's a lot of talk of either Liam or Noel doing Wonderwall for the ending, and Nicky Wire is all of a sudden expressing his regret at the Manic Street Preachers turning the gig down now that he has clocked how much exposure (and subsequent sales) are on offer.
i think it would be banging if Mr Wiggins (no doubt soon to be Sir Wiggins or perhaps they will cut to the chase and it will be Lord Wiggins) rode onto the stage for the closing ceremony, right, on a moped or scooter and belted out The Real Me off The Who's Quadrophenia album.
what might be even better is if he still rode in on a moped or scooter and did a number by the band that he looks like he's already a member of, the most excellent vibe masters that are Ocean Colour Scene.
Bradley Wiggins might be quite class at bikes and that, but come on, look at him and then look at that picture above. Bradley Wiggins has the best sideburns in the world since, depending on your tastes, either Roger Daltrey shaved his off or since when The King, Elvis Presley, went into hiding. he shouldn't be on a saddle, he should be on a stage kickin' it.
we are probably going to get Liam (Noel Gallagher is just too Noel Gallagher to do it), along with the likes of Mick Hucknall and Sir Elton John. ho hum, Bradley riding on and doing The Day We Caught The Train, Hundred Mile High City or even better my favourite Traveller's Tune would be much better.
in the mean time, nice one on winning all that stuff, Mr Wiggins, but you should really with your look and style consider packing it in and going in to music.
hopefully someone like that Seb Coe chap is reading this and they will make it happen!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
