^ That's Boris Johnson for you. I always think of him like the embarrasing drunken uncle at a wedding. :lol:

Aw I'm sad it's all at an end now. Watching the highlights of the past 2 weeks on the massive screen made me appreciate watching all the medals won, the records broken. Beijing really pulled out all the stops to make it a successful games, which it seems to have been. When they were speaking of the Olympics bringing people regardless of gender, nationality or ethnic origin together, I believed it. You know I wasn't even going to bother with the Olympics a month ago, now I can say I'm glad I took an interest in it as it's probably been the sporting highlight of the year (well ok, perhaps not quite as good as Man Utd win the double :P)

In perspective, London needn't even think about coming close to matching the spectacle that Beijing put on.

I was thinking of trying to make it to London 2012 too. Sounds like a meet in the making! But it also makes me feel bad that I couldn't go to the Beijing one instead. :lol:

Sad to see it's over though. This has been the most exciting sporting event for me since I don't really follow sports much. Now I'll probably never turn on the TV for something other than video games for the next few years XD

The only way London could do a better Olympics is if they gave up civil rights for the next 4 yrs.

Back in Texas >_<

^ We played a large part in an ongoing illegal war with Iraq, does that count?

Ugh, that ad. I don't mind sporting celebrities advertise stuff, but if it's that cheesy and that blatantly obvious they're in it just for the money, it annoys me quite a bit.

Did anyone download a torrent with the final montage? The one in USA's NBC broadcast during the credits (after Bob Costas spoke)? This one:



IT'S FREAKING BEAUTIFUL!
