I cannot wait for the tennis matches.
First and only time players will be wearing color at the All England Club. It's going to be a strange sight.
Good point mods please change "Olympics" to "generic sporting event" so I don't get prosecuted.Did you misspell the host city's name to avoid any sort of licensing fees?
Probably because everyone knows we haven't got as much money or people nor the need to put out a positive friendly image to cover up our human rights record.I have to say I can't name a single Team USA member besides Phelps, Lochte, Tyson Gay, Misty May Treanor, or those on the basketball team (sad DRose has to sit this one out)
Seems to be a lot less hype in the news about this Olympics compared to Beijing
I'm looking forward to Danny Boyle's opening ceremony show. He has said that it will feature cloud seeding (silver iodide = artificial rain)
Many Olympians, past and present, abide by what Summer Sanders, a swimmer who won two gold medals, a silver and a bronze in Barcelona, calls the second Olympic motto: "What happens in the village stays in the village." Yet if you ask enough active and retired athletes often enough to spill their secrets, the village gates will fly open. It quickly becomes clear that, summer or winter, the games go on long after the medal ceremony. "There's a lot of sex going on," says women's soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo, a gold medalist in 2008. How much sex? "I'd say it's 70 percent to 75 percent of Olympians," offers world-record-holding swimmer Ryan Lochte, who will be in London for his third Games. "Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do."
None of the 38 million Brits watching this **** on here?
Thought it was pretty good but foreigners probably won't get the Mr Bean reference.
