    Oh, well. Thanks, allezfred. I sort of realized it after I posted. That's alright. I'm still going to tape it.

    I'm looking at these pictures on TV, the view of the stadium, cutting to a view over London, and I just can't quite believe it's actually happening! SQUEEEE!!

    I've been a bit meh in the run-up, all the corporate crap, the scary laws, I've been feeling really disillusioned But in the past few days the spirit has hit, my love for the Olympics has returned, and I am ridiculously excited!

    Enough so I'm back to wishing I was in London to taste the atmosphere. I remember how amazing it was in Manchester for the Commonwealth Games, so this must be unbelievable! I'm just trying to remind myself of the many reasons it wouldn't be practical anyway, including my tendency to get panic attacks on crowded trains

    Mind you, as they show Weymouth in the evening sunshine now I'd probably rather be there Seaside!

    No, in this day and age of the Internet, it's just plain out and out stupid!! Would have thought NBC had learned it's lesson in Vancouver, but nope!!

    HAPPY OLYMPICS DAY EVERYONE!! IT'S HERE!!! IT'S HERE!!!

    Still choked up after watching the piece on Ryder Hedjadal's Dad and best friends heading off to Milan to surprise him at the end of the second to last stage of the Giro D'Italia. That really gave me both the chills and the tears flowing.

    Oh and what was HBC thinking w/our unis? They look like they're in the 70's, not 2012. When will the COC wake up and give that contract to someone who will outfit our athletes the way they deserve to be outfitted?

    Wasn't Amir Khan on the record as saying he was against women boxing?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Someone directed me to a live feed that's working. It's Brazilian and not the best quality, but it's WORKING! So excited.

    Did you see Ryder auctioned off a pink jersey to raise funds for one of the women cyclists on the Canadian team. Very cool of him.

    No I didn't. Awwww!! They were talking about his chances tomorrow and one thing they didn't mention is how perhaps that crash at the Tour de France might have been a Godsend, as he'll be rested. Every other rider will still be recovering from the last few weeks of the Tour. Surprised that didn't come up.

    British Olympians of days gone by are just swimming in the home games factor. Organisers invited all former medalists to opening ceremony. Nice touch! BBC are chatting to medalists that have never had a second look since their medal wins. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee for Olympians making $$$$$$$$ and getting airtime!

    I cant see the usual disclaimer on the BBC player that it's only available in the UK. I know they didnt geo block for the Diamond Jubilee - Maybe it isnt now? Sorry if I get anyone's hopes up and it is.
