Only if the Marathon goes through the East End.

It'd be more of an obsticle course that way, avoiding people nicking your trainers and dodging people doing drive-by's.

Otherwise it'll just be the same but colder.

no

It's amazing what you can do in a totalitarian state, especially when everyone's used to marching round in formation.

Atleast you will be able to see the runners in London.


I think it will be much better, we just have to be clever rather than spend loads of money, as a pose to the chinese with there infinite cash.

If we had Brian May playing God Save The Queen on top of the new stadium, that would be a hit. Things like that. We have alot of famous talented people, lets use them.

We could have that David Blaine on fire jumping from a plane with no parachute and landing in the torch (thus lighting it)


learn to speak english for starters.

also david blaine is american

this is not spam

I laugh, because you double posted. Therefore, SPAM!


Anyways... London should be fine. At least they won't be kicking people out of their country for opposing to things... and at least (hopefully) they won't replace their best singer with a more attractive one lip-syncing the good ones voice.

I think it'll be good. Not as much of spectacle as Beijing but with the amount of analytical writing about the last Olympics on the BBC site I think they've got a cunning plan coming together..
That was a rare post..

Well, seeing as I moved to England last year and people still mention my Americanese, I'm hoping it doesn't. This way, I can laugh at all the British people who discriminate against me.

Although, if they get Brian May to play the Bohemian Rhapsody solo at the beginning, I wouldn't mind watching it....

I see you're a Lee Evans fan...

I don't think London's Olympics will be anywhere near as spectacular as Beijing's because of several things; ridiculous amount of security with weaponry, leona lewis + david beckham (he doesn't even live here, wtf) and most of all, the smuf, egotistical belief that most british keep that England is the most glorious country in the world, and our way of life is the way of life.

With Beijing, there was culture.
With London, there'll be Leona Lewis and fish 'n chips.
#20
You do know that all the athletes who underperformed at Beijing were shot in the leg, right? Unless you plan on doing that as well, London, you're Olympics are gonna be a bit boring.


jk, but I'm not quite sure. The Beijing Olympics were quite good. They had a Chinese Death Star at the Opening Ceremony for f*ck's sake! And a guy who could actually wallk on all the pollution in the air.
#21
it will be good.
buts that only if the stadiums ect actully get built
because at the moment we cant even get anyone to build to pool.

Unless an olympics involves ice it sucks. so it'll suck no more and no less. it'll just suck totally like most of the summer olympics.
#25
No, and it's a waste of ****ing money. Apparently no one cares about the hundreds of other lottery projects that go without money so that we can watch folk do track & field.

this is why i like the winter olympics
it's all white people so it's well funded on its own.

So would i but it obviously gets less than the summer ones.

That would be after the Olympics

No it won't be better than Beijing. The problem won't be the events, I believe they will match the Beijing standard, but rather the bunch of annoying twats we have in this country that will no doubt go on a crime spree during the two weeks. Or maybe it will be the drunks that descend on the city at night.
Can't say I care too much but I think the people of London will ruin the games rather than the games being crap.

The ceremonies won't be anywhere near as grandiose but hopefully original.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Its gonna be terrible, terror attacks and what not. It would mean even more security than in Beijing 2008. Also if the GB team/individual loses the fans would turn into hooligans.

Also the stadium looks poo



Talking about no cover or what, England is known for rain and yet they have like no overhead cover.

Presentation/design wise? No.
Sporting wise? Yes.

Is that the 90,000 seater stadium that will become 20,000 after the games? Ridiculous.
Why didn't the FA just put a running track around Wembley?!

If we don't compete in the football the games will be ruined.
