Iron Maiden are the local boys - bass player and founder Steve Harris went to the same school as David Beckham for heaven's sake. We could have heard a snatch during the quick history of British music. One of their songs could have been among the many played as the national teams marched in - how much U2 does one really need?
And I longed for their mascot Eddie (pictured) to loom up across the stadium and bite the head off Shami Chakrabarti and the other politically correct appointees carrying the Olympic flag.
