    The Cauldron

    New video I found online of the area around the cauldron. http://instagram.com/p/jgZfwqMPe7/
  2. Detroit?!! Medals from athletes would be missing from the village hours after they won them only to show up at a pawn shop hours later. Stop watches would be stolen and sold to the tourists for drug money. I live near Pittsburgh and the news around here is making a joke of the games even being in our city. We can't even afford public transportation right now as it stands.
  3. Your right about them turning black after burning for days. Here are my top places where you are most likely to find a petal after the London Olympics: 1. eBay 2. Moscow back alley 3. lost in customs on the flight back to its home country 4. on the tv show Pawn Stars
  4. I just read this online... "The Cauldron will be moved to take pride of place in the Olympic Stadium within the eyeline of competing athletes - echoes of its location at Wembley for the London 1948 Games. At the end of the Games, each team will take their petal home and the London 2012 Cauldron will cease to exist. Like a flower that only blooms for the during the competition, it's a temporary representation of the extraordinary transitory community that is the Olympic Games. " I can imagine some of these pieces ending up in a back alley like the cauldron from Moscow
  5. The giant baby was a bit scary. I am glad I watched the live feed from London. It was commercial free and uninterrupted. NBC is showing it now in the States and there is a commercial every five minutes. Plus the commentary is an embarrassing.
  6. The cauldron looked great at night. Gotosy... While were at it what ever became of Calgary's cauldron? I remember there was a thread on here back in the day about cauldrons after the Olympics but i cant seem to find it.
  7. What ever happened to the cauldron? I know they took it down two years ago but did they ever do anything with it?
  8. This is nothing new. Every few years someone else is complaining about the Bela and Marta. I believe this was already looked into by the the USOC at some point because Bela is no longer the National Coach and Marta is.

    Nice pictures! Did you happen to get any pictures of the Innsbruck Olympic Cauldrons?

    Your Favo(u)rite Olympic Tv Commercials

    My favorite is the 2008 Derek Redmond Visa commercial. I just about cried the first time I saw it. Some of my not so favorite would include the Vanessa Atler Reese's commercial (she never qualified for the games), and the Reebok Dan and Dave commercials from 1992. There was so much hype around these athletes and then they didn't qualify or win.
  11. Did the Olympics change Niagra Falls? I was planning on visiting there in a few months and am alarmed of the transition the country may have made.
  12. Funny. Or it is in a back alley like Moscow's cauldron.

    Download Ceremonies here!

    Does anyone know where to find Lake Placid's Opening Ceremonies? I can not seem to find one video online of the cauldron lighting....not even on youtube.
  14. That fluff piece seemed like he was reading the back of a book about Canada from a Barnes and Noble's bargain bin. Ha. I remember when I went to work the next day and people were telling me about Canadian's living only in the first 100 miles of their country ....just like Tom said. I shouldn't really dig into that clip that much though. For years John Madden was on Monday Night Football and said some of the craziest quotes like "Don't worry about the horse being blind. Just load the wagon" and got some of the best ratings on tv.

    After games merchandise discounts

    The ORDA store in Lake Placid has some discounted children's Vancouver shirts. I stopped at both of these stores a few days ago. About 75 percent off. If you go to the Team USA store on Main in Lake Placid they have hats, keychains, children's shirts, Ralph Lauren polo's, mens shirts, and vests for all 50 percent off. All of the vests are all xl and 2x.
