    Yeah, that's a big bummer about the empty seats, especially since there are a lot of people who want to go. Reminds me of Athens.

    And that should have been a very good reason to allow people to have those seats that wanted to see the competitions. Those empty seats just made it look like people weren't interested in those games/competitions that were watching on TV. That's how it looked to me. It really did look bad.

    “With the technology we now have that didn’t exist at the time it can be shared with everyone in the park with screens,” Heatherwick said. “We felt that sharing it with the screens reinforces the intimacy.”

    Before arriving for the opening ceremony, the flame had traveled across the U.K. in a 70-day torch relay covering 8,000 miles. Organizers said that public exposure — 15 million Britons have seen it — was more important than showing it off in a park.
    from the article--first of all, seen from a screen is like not being there, and what about the non 15 million Britons who are now in London for the games? They didn't even get to see the torch relay!

    Phelps was flummoxed in his interview right after the race. Apparently he was 15 years old the last time he missed an Olympic podium?? If that is true that is amazing. No wonder he was stunned. I want to say his other races against Ryan are Ryan's to lose but I don't think Phelps will not be going quietly. In their other races (provided they get through the heats) I hope they have close lane assignments.

    I thought it was going to sit aloft that voidy swirly red thing outside the stadium I was just wondering what the point of that was if not to house the flame.
