Tall chicks freak me out.

Um, I didn't catch any of the opening ceremony.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

Now the Caro match is finished, am I allowed to show a little celebration for a great 21-18 win against Sweden in Women's Handball ... Target must be 3rd in group and then avoid Russia in the QF ..

Re: 2012 London Olympics

You want to see what happens if two girls that clearly have disdain for each other are being forced to play dubs?

What the Lisicki/Kerber - Watson/Robson score...

They don't look so tall on television.

No opening ceremony? I sat through hours of it just to see Radwanska and Sharapova carry the flags of Poland and Russia. And they both looked so beautiful! Makes you proud to be a tennis fan!

Is the Danish handball so diminished these days that that's all you can really hope for?

You are kidding me. Cowell go those muppets from One Direction booked for the closing ceremony? ... Christ, I guess Tweedy and Tulisa and the entire Towie cast is on alt stand-by ..

Well, the men just won the Euro, so they should be playing for medals, but on the women's side, I don't see the Danish girls winning against neither Russia nor Norway .. Actually, today's win against Sweden was quite unexpected. In a pre Olympic warm-up tournament just a few weeks ago, Sweden outclassed Denmark by 9 goals.

Maybe I am confused. It may not be the "proper" closing ceremonies I am referring to. I am talking about this:

Today road race was good and sweet with revenge , so I'm looking forward to the second one and the track events.

Other than that, Badminton will be fearce, the rowing looks set for some good racing, white water events are always fun, and the team dressage is always a rewarding watch if you can dive quickly and deeply into the complexity of the event.

I'll probibly skip most of the athletics apart from the 800, 1500, pentathlon, decathlon, and maybe the pole vault.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

Sold out to the public :



and it's not just snippets of larger pictures with a large crowd. There were other pictures in the papers showing large areas empty.

Obviously we cannot judge from Caroline's match yesterday, as everyone knows, people will pay good money NOT to watch Caroline, but the rest of the venues aren't with her involved.

Looks like the ticket scandal at the London Olympics will rival that of World Cup 2010 ...

Just brilliant. They never learn ... and yes, I know it's the same at every large sporting event with thousand and thousand of tickets given to pundits, commentators and naturally all the VIP and sponsor tickets .. still, it's sad.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

Today's schedule.
http://2012.itftennis.com/olympics/s...-schedule.aspx

Most interesting match: Aga - Goerges (12:00 at CC)
2nd most interesting match: Venus - Errani (2nd match on Court 1). Where's Venus at with her illness, is she a contender or will it be a Wimbledon repeat?

And you're supposedly the pervert in chief.

It was pretty good. I thought the one for the Vancouver games was better though.

I saw a commercial a few minutes ago for the upcoming movie Paranorman that was Olympic themed. There was this character from the movie doing a routine on the pommel horse with an actual Nbc gymnastics commentator commenting. I thought it was pretty funny.

Re: 2012 London Olympics

Watched some Olympic highlights yesterday waiting for some coverage of the German dubs match and they showed some beach volleyball... and they were wearing long-sleeve clothes! That surely does violate the spirit of the sport somehow, dosen't it?
