    Thanks for the info, Whitelightning!

    I wouldn't say I'm overly excited for it but I'll find out what's going on. Not sure I'll get to see much of it though, now that I'm living in Poland.

    Yeah it was pretty neat when they were here in Vancouver but it did screw up traffic for a while lol.

    Looking forward to it as always, though i prefer it when its on a very different time zone as then i get to watch more of it live.
    I do like the fact there are over 20 new HD channels broadcasting now.

    Girlfriend won a VIP package at work where they fly her down to London on Monday, then a tour round the village off to an event to watch, then champagne event, then another event.
    She works for British Gas, so its likely swimming events but still very jealous.

    I don't know many people who are interested in it to be honest.

    I don't think I even turn the TV on during Olympic time. Whereas a mate is so unbelievably into it it's bordering on a mental condition.

    Already covered his media room with stuff.

    The only thing that is good, is Women's Volleyball. And even then it's only good if it's Beach Volleyball, and being in London there go's that.

    Sport sport and more sport thank god. Sports the only thing on TV that's not absolute ****e these days. Fact is, the more sport that's on TV, the less room their is for crappy soaps and reality TV bollocks. I'm going to the GB vs Senegal match tomorrow night at Old Trafford. BRING IT ON!!!!

    With nothing on TV that is interesting this actually is better than most of the crap that is on programs.

    Personally i like watching the Olympics maybe because you dont get to see them every year or so but every 4 years.

    Plenty of sport - good
    Chaos in London - bad

    I'm definitely avoiding London over the next couple of weeks. It's mental on a good day, with events all around the city it'll turn into a joke.

    i wont look olympics at all. it feels like cccp with idiotic tight sponsor rules.
    military doesnt fit to olympics also.
