Two Londons

Did anyone find it odd to see the headline "BLIMEY! IT'S LONDON" on the sports page of today's Mercury News? The story's online version uses a different headline, perhaps changed out of sensitivity, but I saw the "blimey" headline early this morning while sitting in the back end of a bus. A guy in the front was reading the paper, and I immediately thought the headline was in bad taste--but then I remembered it was about the really high time London had yesterday, with the Olympics announcement. It's like two different Londons in parallel universes.
