just saw the olympic opening and while it was okay, the only thing of note was the flame...macartney was rubbish, elton john would have been better, what effin relevence did "hey jude" have?
well done Phelps Hysterical
phelpsy did it so it seems.

got to admire the badminton played who played to lose Big Grin

is it cheating to play tactically, runners do it, cyclists do it, why can't the badminton players do it?
I guess nobody here's a fan of the olympics Big Grin... what does that say about the demographic of pig pen trollers?

As for the badminton players, yeah, saw the video. It was pretty abysmal. They weren't even volleying really, they just serve then let the shuttlecock fall to the ground. There's a limit to how baldfaced you can be.
at least i get to watch the football now it's over Smile
Wow, I thought I hated the Olympics (I always have before!) but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I thought the opening ceremony was genuine and surprisingly 'real' in the sense of representing British culture. I'm not even vaguely patriotic, often the opposite in fact, but I was touched by it. And I hate watching sports, like football/rugby/whatever, but athletics I find quite enjoyable to watch, especially stuff like diving and gymnastics : D ending ceremony was a bit crap but had some good parts.
as far as Olympics go i agree that it was a great games.
it will be even better if they carry through the promise of giving the landscaped areas to the people for recreation. some lucky Londoners
Football's back... hooray, the football's back Big Grin
Hysterical

I knew it. Is there anyone abroad who doesn't support Man U!
loads, football isn't big in the Philippines. in the uk i lived about 2 miles away from the ground, if that.
MIAMI ALL DAY! (basketball only of course)
