  1. With 112 pages on this thread, and 3 weeks to go, I thought I'd create a poll just to get a snapshot of what Gamesbidders think when it comes to the location of the cauldron. Let's keep the discussion here in this thread, but the poll is in a separate thread: Cauldron Location Poll

  2. Just to add to that. When I was on Atlanta's OC cast, the opening crew (the 5 colored tribes) then became the track-tarp Uncovering crew. So while the magical moment of the Zeus temple sequence was happening, I/we couldn't really watch it live, even though we were on the same field because we were busily removing the covering on the track, to make it ready for those darn sons-of-a-gun athletes, working in the dark and then throwing it into the pit. I really hated that part of it...but no choice. That was the job designation. Do it or don't come back. And even if you're there, your sec

  3. Speaking from a British point-of-view, I am hoping and to some extent expecting something exciting, unexpected and innovative. These are values which we would like to present to the world .. we have so much heritage and history to draw from when composing a ceremony, yet we really need to show we're still relevant and embrace those sentiments I mentioned. Hence, I am hoping the end of this story is a "nice one UK" and not a disappointed yawn. I'm no patriot particularly, but I rather feel we'll do a pretty good job! At worst, it can't be as bad as the London bus with "modern" dance in the h

  4. Let's be clear. Time isn't "running short" for London. It's not as if they've been procrastinating and are left with their backup plan. They are implementing a plan developed years ago according to a carefully mapped timetable. They have exactly the time they need to realize their vision. Instead of lamenting all the things that are "sadly no longer possible" (as if that ship has sailed!) let's just wait and see what emerges.

  6. My table tennis tickets that I ordered on May 23 arrived this morning and they are the big souvenir type. The others that I ordered the following week arrived a week earlier but were the smaller more basic ones.

  7. Waltzing Mathilda as an upbeat power anthem? File under "Things you have to be Australian to understand". Anyway, reminds me of one of the better closing cermony moments of all time:

  8. Should be hitting very soon. I just made a check to see if it was uploaded already. But no. I'd say give it another week. The last batch of sportscasters for the Canadian Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium has yet to be announced and so is the fuller breakdown of the hours for each network involved and what sports. But CTV Olympics announced yesterday after the Canada Day weekend a slew mixing beloved features and segments with new ones ready to hit between now and during the Olympics on CTV, TSN, Rogers Sportsnet, and RDS like the Summer Olympics version of the Difference Makers (hosted by R

  10. My guess, Michael, is when the NBC family of networks unveils its Olympic TV and Internet schedules, which is the only major significant thing remaining after all of the anchors, reporters, play-by-play and analyst sportscasters were named to the NBC London 2012 broadcast team for us American Olympic fans to get excited and plan for (and also for Canadian Olympics who may be interested in watching some of the coverage up north on at least on NBC proper in addition to CTV Olympics). I expect the schedule will be released sometime within these two weeks. More likely later this week with the like
