    Re: London 2012 - Games of the XXX Olympiad - July 27-August 12, 2012

    I really enjoyed it. Was it the best? No, it had some flaws. Really liked the Satanic Mills portion with Kenneth Branagh walking around with a big stogie, the queen being escorted by 007, and Mr. Bean. The children's literature section was interesting. I thought the music thru the ages portion was a little dull. Interesting cauldron.

          Interesting Day 1 results. Sorry Mr. Phelps, no medal for you today.

          Good luck to Canada's Clara Hughes tomorrow in the women's road race. Bring home another medal girl! It would be a great follow-up to your bronze in Vancouver and a great wrap-up to a phenomenal Olympic career in both the winter and summer games.:bow:

                  the archery competitions have been incredibly unpredictable. The new format and the unpredictable winds at Lord's have been wreaking havoc on the archers. Lots and lots of upsets, and victories by 1 or 2 points, or even shoot-offs.

                      it's going to be good for most of the other teams, as well. I saw what happened on replays in both matches and it was really quite ludicrous. What's worse is that the South Koreans claimed they did it because the Chinese did it first, so that must make it OK.

                            Not a fan of Wenlock and Manderville personally, so I'm glad their appearance has been limited.

                              I wonder if I should watch the closing cermonies on NBC, or the Canadian channel, that I get, CTV. To any Canadians, should this US poster watch the CTV broadcast or NBC broadcast?

                                Currently watching the Canadian broadcast of the closing ceremony . I think it is much better than the opening.

                                  I got home from work at the start of the Rio segment. Have to watch the replay at 7:30 for the whole ceremony.

                                    A word of warning if you are recording the games, they MIGHT go overtime, since Canada's broadcast went over about 5 to 15 minutes.

                                      Congratulations London! Job well done!

                                      Really enjoyed this edition of the games! It was loaded with sport highlights that we'll likely not see for a very long time (i.e. Phelps and Bolt).

                                      Now bring on the Paralympics! And Sochi next!
