I feel sorry for the people that have to put up with it...The rocket stuff that is...

They can't even get people to do the security ..I wonder why..what a load of Bo...s..

Its quite sad realy...you have to laugh........

Yes it feels as though the summer has been cancelled.....

LMAO if they get the aiming wrong it will be rocket powered lycra-lemmings..

The track and field stuff says Real Olympics to me. Running, jumping, throwing stuff. Archery weight lifting, rowing and swimming. The good, old fashioned sports.

The only new sport worth watching is beach volleyball.

I think it would be better if it wasn't so nationalistic, the original olympics was about the individual.

They had two types of fighting, boxing and wresting, both conducted naked, and with no "below the belt" rules. Inflicting violence on your opponent's, erm, bits, was in fact, a recommended technique.
