And sorry to be rude, but I really dont want to see any foreign athletes involved in the flame lighting. So you can take your Billie Jean King and Muhammed Ali talk and shove them where the sun dont shine :)

:EVILLE:


Do the Welsh Rugby team have a legitimate shot??/ At least they win shit!

That will always be my favourite too - Fecking all sorts of AWESOME !

I feel exactly the same. We'll never get the Olympics again here in Britain again in most of our lifetimes. It should be someone from Britain that gets to do it, it's not like the opportunity will come up again.

I'd really like to see it be Steve Redgrave but I don't know if they'll go for him because it seems too obvious (which I suppose isn't the best reason for not choosing him but if they're going for an unexpected wow factor then I doubt he will be chosen).

I'll also :rolleyes: to infinity if it's some snotty schoolkid from a 'deprived' area or something.

Im kind of thinking it will be :fragile: as the whole bid campaign was centred around inspiring children to take up sport. Ugh.

No offense taken here. I look forward to the Opening Ceremonies every four years BECAUSE they are unique to the host nation. My dream is to see one live. I can't wait to see what the Brits have put together!

And lighting the caldron is an honor that should be left to an Olympian. Period. The end.

I don't think you are being rude at all - it should be a British person lighting the cauldron - it is the London games after all. And Ali has already had his moment lighting a cauldron!!

Opening ceremony role for Beckham (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/olympics/18977404)

I think him kicking a flaming football into the cauldron might top Barcelona. ;)

I really hope it's not Beckham lighting the flame - he's never been an Olympian, and although he did help out during the bid process, and I know that the Olympics aren't about amatuers any more, his footballing career seems to be the opposite of everything that Coubertin envisaged. We have so many other athletes with even stronger ties to the area than Beckham who would better embody the Olympic ideal than him.

Beckham is from the East End of London and he does look good in pants (http://www.thislittleladywenttolondon.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Becks1.jpg).
