I keep asking myself did he do all this work for cancer because he really cares about the cause or did he feel he needed to do something good to offset his cheating ways as a sportsmen? Did Lance ever do anything that did not have some sort o
  2. its different but i would have thought a hairy cow might have been more kid friendly rather than a plant.

  7. can i just say how great it is to be able to sell unwanted tickets on twitter! i got face value for the tickets i didnt want ans swaped a water polo ticket for athletics last night and saw Aussie gold! something Rio should look at having a twitter account for ticket swap or face value sell and set up collection points. Think its a good way to get more people acces to tickets. Both people i sold my tickets to couldnt get anything at olympic park but now they can.

  9. hmmm not so sure thats right i have just sent 3 days in Paris and it was cool and wet each day. Out taxi driver told us this weather was more like November than July. I also had to wait 2 hours at the airport to drop my bags off never had to do that in London
  10. im sure i got a stack of spectator guides in Beijing from cosports when i picked up my tickets and they had boxs of them to give away. i guess its a sign of the times save money in printing and make people print themselves at home.
  11. most of the mining camps in Queensland are dongas guess thats where he got the term from. I also agree no good for a games village have stayed in better backpackers then some dongas i know of

  15. When i think or Regent St i think of the Xmas lights and think it makes it a bit special at night so would like to have seen something like that for the games. I do like the flags idea but like other have said maybe oxford St. Guess my thought might change when i see it up close in just over a month

  19. Not sure they are as we are a C and D and nothing as yet
  20. thing is i used a friend of a friends address in UK and they are coming out to Australia in early July so might have an issue if the tickets dont arrive before they leave. These were tickets we got in the 1st round so hope they are going in some sort of order. Tickets i got via Cosports i will pick up at will call window in London as almost A$50 for delivery was crazy
  21. be nice if people can let us know when you get your tickets in the mail. I have a tight window of someone being at the address and be nice to know if others are getting tickets sooner rather than later
  22. They look to have some good diving tickets just checked the 10m platform and could get tickets
  23. there is no way they can find the people that have morning tickets and kick them out. They just hope people will go after a few hours. I know they sold olympic park tickets for Sydney but not sure is the did a spacific time like London
  24. after an hour of requesting tickets i cant find anything that has come back available even random volleyball prelims. anyone else been lucky?
