So the time has come, after months of anticipation and excitement, it has finally arrived.

Whose going to be watching it? Anyone actually managed to get tickets to be at the actual event?

Have we got any haters? Personally I haven't really been that into it, I am sure once it is up and running I shall be loving it!

Thoughts?

I absolutely love the Olympic Games as an incredible spectacle of human endeavour and achievement, but I have to say everything that goes on around it such as the endless weeks of the torch relay and the opening ceremony tends to leave me quite disinterested.

I have to be honest the one at Beijing was something else - absolutely jaw dropping - but unless it's done on that scale they tend to be somewhat naff. I always wondered why spend all these millions on it when for a fraction for the cost you could book The Rolling Stones, The Who and Pink Floyd and put them on the same stage for the greatest concert of all time. I know what I'd rather go to see.

However this is our home games so I will be watching - but to be honest I'm really just waiting for the sport to start.

Not something I would perhaps usually be interested in, but I'm currently sat in the hotel room for the evening near Heathrow with nothing else much to do, so will have it on.

Will leave the forum open and anyone can join in discussion as it happens then :)

I'm not a fan of the traditional sports but I like to watch certain events. I would never have tuned in for the ceremony but I got stuck at work and got home just as this was starting...and now I can't switch off in case I miss something! :lol:

Massive thumbs up to the choreographer - what an amazing achievement on a massive scale! I bet their stress levels have been through the roof! :p

To be fair I was pretty pessimistic! But it's actually turned out quite well, I am well up for the games now!
