Well here we go lets hope it's as spectacular as the opening ceremony, plus we have Beckham, Lewis & Page on a bus :rolleyes: to look forward to.
 

Wookey

Muppet is not a slur
It's fucking brilliant.

Dynamite with a laserbeam
Guaranteed to blow your mind'

In a world racked with wars, hunger, inequality and pain, to be reminded that humans can create such incredible spectacle in the name of our commonality is very special indeed.:cool:

I suspect the show is more in the name of the Central Committee, and the performers are there becasue of various 'incentives', but go with it if you want.

I just hope to God Lodoners have more interesting things to do with one, or even two, year/s of their lives than to 'dedicate' themselves to making politicians look good.

One on one? You're crazy.
i'd like to see the politicians taking part more in the olympic games - brown v obama in the cycling pursuit - obama won't like it up him:eek:

I don't believe those kids are really playing the drums, there's some less pretty child doing it behind the scenes :mad:

I guess the BBC don't tell you when the London segment is due to appear in case you don't want to watch 3 entire hours of this guff, with some cliche driven, bland-me-to-death, Welsh newsdesk bore trying to blag his way through a voice over.

Dammit. When they started singing the second verse of the National Anthem, I thought they might sing the entire thing, and get to the 'crush the rebellious Scots' bit. :)

'Rebellious Scots to crush' isn't an official verse anymore Matt :(
