There are a few sods I wouldn't mind seeing laid to rest I must admit, but the completion of the green space in the middle of the Olympic bowl does not fill me with glee. Is it just me, or has that tiny patch of green simply emphasised how far away we fans will be from the pitch?
The stadium has been completed on time and on budget - remarkable given this is Britain and the Labour Party were in charge until very recently - but we have yet to see how the pitch will play when it is being used week in and week out for football, whilst also hosting javelin, shot put and hammer throwing events.
I'm not sure why Coe is overseeing the lifting up of a flap of the pitch in that picture. Is he saying, "And under here we are burying the heritage and soul of West Ham United Football Club" perhaps?
