Watching it right now. Wondering how the 2012 ceremony is going to compare. My prediction is beefeaters riding around in a routemaster and the Queen giving a speech. Ideally It'd be more flamboyant but we left didn't start working on anything until the night before and it's all we could get on such short notice.

The olympics are an absolute disgrace.

X billion $ for a 16 day event, that leaves the local tax payers in debt for many years afterwards.

I reckon 1 in 3 podium finishers will be on drugs. Mainly HGH - the drug testers have little chance of catching these cheats because of the difficulty in detecting it HGH 'might go undetected' in Beijing 2008 Beijing Olympic Games - News - Yahoo!7 Sport

So basically, HGH is the most effective anabolic steroid. Yet the IOC are admitting that they have little chance of catching those that have used & abused it!

I can't believe that that GB boxing kid Frankie Gavin, red hot favourite for Gold, failed to make the 60kg weight .

Yup, watching

Not big on the Olympics otherwise, but opening ceremonies can be fun.
