    Thus far I like them. Even more so I like the new feature offered on my AT&T U-Verse; multiple channels on one screen, etc. rather impressive...

    One day to go...

    I wish someone would have create an app or a ticker for Windows XP & 7. People use to create those all the time for the World Cup, etc.

    Surely someone else, besides me is looking forward to the opening ceremony of the Olympics, no?

    Hey London - Imma let you finish, but China had the best Olympic opening ceremony ever!


    This one was -- weird to say the least. Wasn't expecting He Who Must Not Be Named!

    Mike Oldfield? :confused:

    I think that the ending more than made up for the beginning.

    The Brits did a decent job in their opening ceremony, but I agree that it paled in comparison to the Beijing opening ceremony. I don't think any country can top what China did in 2008.

    Yes, agreed absolutely.

    Only thing I really liked was Mr. Bean in Chariots of Fire, my Chinese and Mongolian friends seemed to think that was the best part as well. Arctic Monkeys was terrible, but then I always hated britpop. Overall I thought it was a rather self indulgent showcase of Britain in the past.

    A good first basketball game between USA & Croatia, the women. They kept it close for awhile...

    It's good they reversed that decision, It didn't look like he had a false start.

    I'm no judge of any sort, but "judging" by what the sportscasters were saying and seeing it, I think they made the right decision by reversing it.

    I'm English, from Hackney. I'm not being bias, but the opening ceremony was very well done. I will say this, there were a lot of things shown, that to me, unless you're from the UK, you just simply wouldn't get.

    Anyway, in other news, it is a shame that Spain lost today; to me they played better, even more so in the second half. Mata was outstanding...

    Serena Williams just crushed everyone on her way to Olympic Gold. It's amazing how she is so much better than the top two seeds. It wasn't like Azarenka and Sharapova played poorly. Serena just played so much better.

    True! I like Serena, albeit I didn't appreciate the 'shouting' & 'laughing' towards Sharapova at the end of the match...

    Watched water polo and womens indoor volley ball yesterday to watch USA win both, I was worried for volley ball against Turkey, they were up 13 - 7 and US was not looking good, but then they made a come back and won all 3 rounds.

    Having only played water polo in gym class a few times years ago I was left confused for much of the game, where sometimes it was alright to dunk the person with the ball and other times they would get an exclusion, I just wasn't sure what was going on the whole time haha
