2012 London Olympics discussion

Let the Games begin!

For every two years (Summer Games and then the Winter Games), the world stops and comes together in the name of competition. As an athlete myself I will be glued to my TV. I'll be watching everything.

Future Opening Ceremony directors must be pissed about the 2008 Beijing Opening Ceremony, because the London Opening Ceremony has been just OK thus far compared to Beijing's.

Re: 2012 London Olympics discussion

yeah I was thinking that myself. Not quiet on par with China's opening ceremony. I'm a big Rowan Atkinson fan though, so that was cool he got a huge feature though

Indeed they do.

I heard a rumor that Lord Voldemort (the actor who played him) would show up and zap people. But I was disappointed when they made a balloon version of him instead.

And whoever created the mix for the Parade of Nation should get a medal. Music has been great and even the broadcasters are saying it's speeding up the parade instead of the usual snooze-fest.

Is it just me? Or did anyone think the Undertaker was coming out when the gong went off during the Olympic cauldron ceremony? Hahahahaha

Yeah that was a very fast entry for all the countries. Was it me or were all the women from Spain smoking hot? Jesus Christ...
