  • Yes but ive no one to play with, aside from that youd be wasted in 30 minutes image

  • Or we could play virtually image

  • Doh, im guessing that was your plan image

    Indeed Mr B. Considering the plan for the opening ceremony it could be better to be wasted after 30 minutes rather than sit through 2 hours of it!

    Only if you promise not to know the national anthem of Burundi.

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    Promise.

    I was thinking: A country's uniform is so bad that they look embarassed could be worse. Especially considering the Egyptian team's confession and the apparent 'outcry' from the US that their outfit is "too European"

    Oh, I was quite looking forward to it image

    I'm sure that with Danny Boyle it'll be an absolutely inspiring show but I after a few countries parading through - I tend to switch off a little.

    I hope the interesting stuff is before the endless parade of athletes, because that is really quite dull after the first couple.

    I can't see me sitting through all that, then up to midnight, without falling asleep.

    Maybe they'll do the athlete parade first? to keep the audience "tuned in"?

  • I've been told that the interesting stuff is on first - someone who's in the show has told a colleague that he's "on" at about ten past nine image

    Who'll light the flame. Steve Ovett is my guess.

  • I hate to amit it, but I'm getting a tinsy bit excited about the whole thing. Not yet hit the plonk either... 

  • PhilPubPhilPub ✭✭✭

    Uh-oh, JAMES BOND...

     

    Glugglugglugglug...

     

     

  • PhilPubPhilPub ✭✭✭

    American Samoa??  Never heard of it.

     

    Glugglugglugglug...

    I admit... I've lost so much.... Already.



    Benin?



    What Is happening with these outfits?!?
  • PhilPubPhilPub ✭✭✭

    Comoros??

    OK, half a Geography degree but I'm learning shit here.  Cambodia has the longest alphabet in the world. Who'd've thought?

     

  • Eritrea. Oops, think I switched off somewhere around A.

    Danny Boyle's stuff was definitely worth watching. Now I'm just finishing off my wine so I can head of and get some sleep before we get something other than the Bee Gees.

     

     

  • I switched off at the James Bond point, can't stand daniel craig and no time for the royal family. was bored shitless by the start, it did improve with the visual effects and music, then slid downhill at a rapid pace at the james bond bit. the channel 4 adverts were more entertianing and oggling Mark Foster on the million pound drop got my vote

  • American Samoa, part of the Islands of Samoa in the Pacific, North East of Australia.  After WWII US held on to it to keep the Japanese in order.  Very good rugby team, played at the World Cup in Wales a few years back.  Comoros, islands in the Indian Ocean, North of Sri Lanka, members of the Arab League.  Eretrea broke away from oppressive Ethiopian regime 10/15 years ago.  Was coastal strip of high altitude nation.  Very poor, but probably got more going for it than Ethiopia.  Runners will not be so good, not living at altitude.

    I enjoyed the ceremony, sorry.

  • Does that make me a troll?

  • I thought it was ll magnificent!! Muhammed Ali - respect!!

  • And the Arctic Monkeys were great!

  • and then they go and spoil it by rolling out Macca image

  • I thought Macca was great but he could have performed something else (not the Frog Chorus) - Live and Let Die?

    If the queen is going to look as miserable as that we should stop inviting her to things.
  • Anyone else have a hangover this morning?
