    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.

    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...

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

    I was heart broken, Anyone watch the rowing. Mens light weight 4. Shocker.
    One of the first heats had Aus and GB next to each other, a bit of context, GB got gold one month before with Aus coming second and then year before that Aus had the gold. The aussie boys had placed a few years a go, same crew. I believe they may of won or it was the one were they got 1.5 seconds infront (a big gap) and in the last 500 they lose by about .6ish.

    In the final the dan's gunned it out (former olympic champs) with Aus in 2nd.... They both blow up Gb comes up then south africa so its four battling it out.... last 100m South Africa pulls infront and wins the first time they had won rowing, followed by Gb and the dan's. So unexpected. I was hoping the aussie boys would win (1 went to my school/his team mate a rival school - so they both locals).

    Overall, I think for austalia, the olympics was in a bit of a flop. In Australia is still on the news how the swimmers are having tribunals on their performance (worst in awhile) and poor work ethic.

    I really enjoyed this event. I'm swimming lover. I'm a big fan of Michael Phelps. He again performs very well in this event. But I'm very dis-heart after listening about Ye Shiwen doping suspicions. However, yet Le never tested positive and she was vociferous in defending her astounding speed. But suspicions remained strong and swimming coaches.
