Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

I'm rooting for the soccer teams to win gold.

Not because I even like soccer or because I think it will expand soccer fandom in the USA, but so we can brag to the rest of the world "Look, we don't even care about this sport beat all of you at YOUR game." That will just kill them inside, especially the British snobs.

The Russian judges are obviously up to their usual dirty work, trying to screw us again.

^ The USA men's soccer team did not qualify for the Olympics. The women, however, kick butt.

I watched the game from beginning to end. I'm quite certain that it was 4-2.

Opening ceremonies are great so far. Bond escorting the Queen was brilliant!

She didn't look happy at all. The only time I saw a slight smile on her face was when those kids were singing the UK's national anthem.

I wonder if any North Koreans will defect while in London.

Well I thought the ceremony was great. All I've been hearing is how Beijing was better. I didn't watch Beijing but I thought this one was very impressive and creative.

p.s. I guess Ralph Lauren won't be asked to create team USA's entrance clothes anymore after that "made in China" gaffe.

Romney did the same thing in Utah. I agree with you. I thought the ceremonies were also impressive. I was hating the fact I wasn't there to see it myself. I thought they did a great job representing their history and culture, even though I was shocked not to see/hear the Spice Girls...lol




Also, I'm sick and tired of hearing whiny ass Americans crying about how "lame" the opening ceremonies were. News flash assholes: The games were to honor the heritage and culture of the United Kingdom, not to appease egocentric Americans who somehow think the world should revolve around them. When we host the Olympics again in the United States, than they can cater to us. This night was more for the Brits than anybody else.
