For the final installment of “Podcast From a Pub,” Olympics writer Tripp Mickle grabbed one of his former colleagues on the hockey beat, Greg Wyshynski, the man behind Yahoo’s “Puck Daddy” blog.

The two met at Miller’s, a busy corner pub near St. Pancras and the speedy Javelin train that ferries people to and from Olympic Park. It’s Wyshynski’s first Olympics and he’s been to almost every venue at the London Games. The pair talked about their experiences at the Olympic Park, venues, athlete parties and impressions of London 2012. Among the discussion:

“The beer comes to you. They have men walking around with giant suitcases of beer. … Frankly, I don’t know why they weren’t in the Parade of Nations.”

“Fencing … it was like ‘Tron.’ Every time they hit somebody, it glowed a different color.”

“The coverage leading up to the Games was so negative. … All that stuff has gone by the wayside now that Great Britain is winning a gold medal every three minutes.”
