I can't wait for the 2012 games. Going to try and take a week off during this just to watch the events.

edit: on the london2012.com site I thought they were going to be adding murderball to the games.

Wow talk about a trip down memory lane 2k8. Because of an apparent spammer I re-read this entire thread from over 3 years ago. Crazy I remember writing some of these posts. Seems like yesterday.

I ended up planning a 2 week vacation to stay at home, relax and watch the olympics this year.

Someday I hope Vatican City will have representatives in the olympics. I want to see the fucking pope in complete pope garb pole-vault like a boss.

I posted a thread about this in music but I will post the link here too where someone from The Olympics reached out to The Who to see if Keith Moon (1946-1978) could attend their Symphony of Rock event.

Bump.

Time to party like it's 2012. Wonder if Phelps is still doing bong hits?

US women's football is already 1-0 having crushed the French. Woo Hoo.

The most annoying thing about the Olympics (as a northerner) is the constant barrage of travel reminders. 'Plan your journey in advance! Olympic congestion! Delays in public transport'

No there isn't. I'm 200 miles away.

That and the British sporting attitude of 'Oh jolly good! Our man there, the one with nice hair, well, he's been practising this year so he ought to do rather well! He hasn't? Oh. Hey ho! Next time and all that. Best wishes to mummy!'

Nope, everybody takes the piss out of us like that, including us, which is why it's OK

Anyone watch the opening ceremony? I was a lot less embarrassed than I expected to be.

I tried to watch it. I had that Russell Brand quote about the Queen doing a fart, running through my head the whole time for some reason.

The regional costumes were mostly ridiculous, particularly the USA's. It looked like they were members of some boating-oriented prep school.

Were they making a conscious effort to make the spectacle as much like the Hunger Games movie adaptation as possible?

The silly regional costumes were pretty much on the nose.

I agree about the music thing being lame and I'll expand that to the whole "digital age" sketch thing being lame.

I'm tired of the Olympics being hosted by First World nations. Give that shit to Djibouti next time.

Yeah, that's the music thing I was talking abot. The "Jonnie loves Chachie and thanks the Fonze" thing

Both live acts were awful too. Arctic Monkeys had my grandparents decrying the current standard of music and Macca looked like a waxwork which was melting.

I started to discuss the swimming thing with Mr. Kitsa, how it seemed as if Michael Phelps had rested on his laurels a bit, and he responded with this big long thing that made me realize I didn't care about competitive swimming in general, Olympic competitive swimming in particular and especially not the Phelps-Clary-Lochte rivalry in particular.

So I guess he showed me.

I think the opening ceremonies were a tribute to pollution or something like that.
