Olympic censored torch Olympic censored ceremony

Don't get me wrong, I like the fact the Olympics are in London and I care not of cost. I even work in London so my travel is going to be a censored and I say bring it on! Any reason for some cheaky jars at lunchtime and less working hours are a good thing.

BUT...

Do I want to go and see a censored torch being carried down the road by some unknown fuckwit? NO and stop censored asking me to.

AND

friends asking what I am doing this evening regarding watching the opening cerminony on censored TV tonight. Watching TV on a Friday? I'd rather boil my own censored ! I don't give a censored that it cost 27 milion pounds, it will still be dull.

Anyone else as happy about this as me?

    Are you homosexual?

    This is what I fear the most... my local that never really turns on the TV having it blearing out all over the censored place. I hope it doesn't rain as I'm staying in the beer garden.

    It's got loads of men in tight lycra in it. I'm surprised you haven't heard of it, thought it'd be right up your street.

    Personally, I care not for the olympics by now, one way or the other - I do think it's an immense expense that the country could have done without, but they come about every few years, so what the hell.

    Anyway, I thoguht the torch relay was a nice sight to see when it came round here. Not only did they introduce "fire" to North Wales, but the folk that were running were mostly locals that had done something worthy of note.
    It was nice to see an entire village out to support "one of their own", and their gaining some recognition for their achievments, or good work.

    Last time people ran around London with flaming torches they were very naughty and tried to burn the place down.

    Figured I'd watch it, living in London and that for the past couple of yearseremony was impressive in terms of the scale of it and the stuff they did, still undecided as to whether I liked it or not though. The Queen bit and Rowan Atkinson was definitely the highlights for me.

    Now it's time for a quick rant though, I was going to watch the cycle road race today, and a bit of the tennis... the censored BBC why the censored do they need to keep moving things from one channel to another, or completely interrupting something for some moronic presenters to babble on about something completely trivial. What's worse is after this they don't even finish showing what they were and put something censored like archery on.

    Also they're going on about some chinese person getting the first gold in the womens 10m air rifle competition... how the censored is that an olympic sport!?! It's like them putting golf in the 2016 olympics, I know it takes a great deal of skill but it's not a censored olympic sport, come 2020 there'll be a plug wiring event :shock:

    Sorry rant over

    Watched most of the ceremony down the pub on the iPhone then iplayered it this morning for the bits I missed like the torch being lit as there was no way I was going to watch the procession of teams.

    Enjoyed it.

    no, you know me, i hate things and think everythng is gay and censored .

    However,

    I thought that was excellent, i really, really enjoyed it.

    It seemed to be a different take on an opening ceremony and i think it was well executed and very british. i can imagine the rest of the world will have missed some of the points but for the most part, i actually quite like that it was an opening ceremony which seemed deliberately put together for the world with a few deliberate bits just for us brits.

    I was expecting you to do the flag bit. You must be a censored soldier.

    Ahem, apart from the trooping of the colours, or whatever it's called eh?

    Anyway, I really enjoyed the ceremony - apart from the team procession, which is an important part of it, but a bit boring, really.
    Hole sweet zombie jesus, father of satan, those children's choirs at the start were good though. I mean, ridicilously, exceptionally fantastically good.

    I bet they were.....

    No good at the end though? You tired them out?
  • YeehaaMcgeeYeehaaMcgee Posts: 5,740
    They were finished long before I lost interest.

    As an englishman abroad I skimmed the opening ceremony - little bit OTT for my tastes.

    BUT - my canadian work mates who watched loved it and thought it was very impressive and a great show so from that point of view it was a win - our position on the global stage if you will.

    The few events I have seen so far have looked pretty good and the turn out for the road race was amazing. I know we have the capacity to put on a good show (maybe at a financial cost) and I am glad to be not disappointed!

    Enjoyed most of it. Got to B in the team procession at the end and then lost interest and fell asleep.

    Anyone else think it was a bit left-wing in places?

    The ceremony included non aryans, women, and possibly even a gay person.
