I'm looking forward to being able to watch the sports that I want to for once- 24 dedicated channels from the BBC, not to mention wall to wall coverage on the website, so I can sit back and enjoy water polo, cycling and badminton for the first week without being bored to tears by the swimming (and the inevitable Phelps love-fest).
After that first week I disappear to the opposite side of the world, so I'll miss the majority of it. I can't say I am overly disappointed, and that from a real sport fan. There are too many boring sports mixed in with the exciting ones to keep me completely glued to the event as a whole.

So, who will be the last one to carry the flame? I really hope for Eddie The Eagle. No one deserves this more than him!
Yes, I know. Eddie doesn't have anything to do with summer games and he carried the flame on Vancouver already. But come one. He's MOST FAMOUS BRITISH SPORTSMAN OF ALL FUCKING TIME!
I know I'll watch some of it. By the way, there is some contest going on for a very valuable LEGO olympics minifigures that will only be selling in Great Britain during the olympics. They are near mint condition and will be given out at the end of august.
I'm serious, legos can go for tons of money. There is this one set that was 200 dollars two years ago that got cancelled and now sells for 700 dollars on ebay.
The olympics is just a bigger, more glorified, more expensive version of your typical school sports day.
Anyone who went to school in Britain knows that sports day was a waste of fucking time, and just an excuse/opportunity for the bottom 10% of each class to show off how great they were at lifting things and putting them down again.
You're watching morons exhaust themselves for the amusement of the middle and upper classes.
2/10 would not bang.

More like for the amusement of the lower classes. So, there's where YOU fit in. ;)

You honestly think any lower/working class families can afford to go and watch the olympics? Or get the time off work to watch it on TV?

Time off work? Man, we are talking about "lower classes" here. No "working time" for them.
The Olympics are and have always been completely overpriced, overcrowded and overblown in every way. But I could say that about sports in general. At the very least, I'm glad that NYC lost the bid for this year's summer Olympics--otherwise it would have been even more of a nightmare for me just to get around. I still have to feel sorry for most Londoners and other people who live nearby that don't care about any of this.
Fucking my cable package doesn't have the SPORTS package so I don't FUCKING get the GOD DAMN 2012 olympics!

I'm not yet sure if I should like this or not. They have some pretty cool stuff, all right. But it's so... meh.

This doesn't sound like the xenophobic England I know. Not one bit.
Yeah, that's what I thought. They displayed the "Women's suffrage", so why not display the political equalty of all ethnics as well?

I just started to watch the opening cerimonies...
and i have no idea.. whats going on here
call me toxie 0.~
To my fellow Americans: Enjoy waiting until 7:30 tonight to see the Opening on television.
You're a bunch of bastards, NBC.
it certainly is a large stadium compared to the size of the bird cage last year
and look... the queen looks pissed and bored... again...
i also see that the brits used the same idea as the previous games, to separate the people into groups via a people wall
i would have liked to see a few fans that blow air so that the of the different nations and places seem to stand at attention... like the british royal guard.. instead of simply just drooping like they do

Biggest issue I'm hearing of is the small Taxi-driver protests dotting the city.
Without means of raking in the dough from tourist transportation to the Olympics, they feel cheated by the city that seemed to promise them a great "cultural" opportunity. Other than that, it's been pretty good so far. Nothing truly outstanding, but good.
