Olympics Opening Ceremony

Recommended Posts

I can't work this olympic thing out - I have no intention of watching any of it myself, most people I speak to are (at best) ambivalent or just totally uninterested.

Yet the tickets have all sold out :blink:

It's like I'm living in some sort of parallel UK.......

What he said.

The few people I know who are expressing an interest are doing that for their children as they feel they ought to be involving them in some way.

Maybe they will just have a screening of "The Battle of Britain".

A story of how The Few, against all odds, gave a damn and bought a ticket in the face of a nasty regime of jackbooted Olympic Committee members who did their best to invade our Capital with Olympic lanes and German Hire cars.

Probably a sense of something "historic" that must be commemorated.

I guess it all depends on how you look at it.

Not being a TV watcher or newspaper reader, I'm hoping for a relatively Olympics free time between 27 July-12 Aug 2012.

Counting on Al Qaeda to provide the fireworks?

well you need to listen to the subliminals in the london new years firework extravaganza from this last new years..

Maybe someone with a bit of time and inclination could do a spot of editing more to HPC/conspiracy theorist/TFH liking.

just to show them that we aren't overly keen on their playlist...so made up another one,

Watched live they can be quite entertaining.

The opening ceremony for the 1991 World Student Games in Sheffield was surprisingly enjoyable.

I wouldn't have watched it on TV though.

Your council tax is still paying for that, isn't it?

I recollect singing in a concert commissioned by the games as part of their ceremonies. But the rest of it passed me by: it never even occurred to me to find out whereabouts any other events were being held.

Just seen Redgrave on the telly.

He looked so so old there. I suppose he must think the bit medals were worth it but it's all obviously taken a lot out of him.
