  1. Unless he has been ruled out by himself or LOCOG, Jimmy Page will likely be there at one point, but I wouldn't be surprised if many of the acts mentioned earlier were performing either at a ceremony or during the Games. It might sound a bit lame, but I think that this could be the rock and roll Olympics. Susan Boyle somewhere too? If the Olympics were in London in the last two years, she would have been a shoe in for some kind of anthem at a ceremony, but her novelty might have long since gone by 2012.

  3. 20 Million applications from 1.5 million people has just been reported on BBC Radio 5 Live. 50% of events will go to a ballot. I applied for the ceremonies because if you don't ask you don't get and a bit more realistically the BMX finals and the modern Pentathlon day ticket. I'm unemployed and can't afford those, but if I didn't apply I would be very upset with myself. Hopefully I will have a job by the time the second and third ballots come around and will be able to snag some more.
  4. Well, you see one opening ceremony you've seen them all. Nothing to make it really stand out from any other that I've seen and London won't have too much to worry about to match it. But it was still and awesome show like they all are.
  5. I love them! My first impression is that these are best mascots ever.
  6. The IOC has a website?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Thanks for telling me. I'll have to check it out.
  7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMLJ8-0MKOs Second Best - The Olympic Dream Yes, I know it's not a ceremony, but it goes well with this site.
  8. Isn't the "TRANSRAPID" the one that crashed yesterday?
  9. That's because after the Olympics it's very likely going to become a city centre Gulag.
  10. I'm looking forward to Yankee Stadium getting built. That's going make Wembley look as though it was designed in the Stone Age, and Wembley is shaping up to be quite something in itself.
  11. My Grandad went to see the seminal England V Hungary match back in 1953. Not only did he tell me that Frenric Puskas was the greatest player on the greatest team to have ever played the game, but he also told me that Wembley was falling to bits even then.
  12. I think they've put such a distant date so people don't get upset if they set an October date and miss that. It's like Scotty on Star Trek. He'd say a job would take four weeks when it could be done in two and everyone would be mazed when it was fixed so fast.
  13. PPPPPPPPP That's nothing. London used to have a Nuclear reactor on the site where the Olympic Park is being built.
  14. OH MY GOD! The illustrated pictures were impressive, but it just looks fantastic now it's almost finished. The Challenge Cup Final next season is going to be something very, very special.
  15. So is it going to be something like Wrigleyville in Chicaco?
  16. I can garuntee that if the blocks next to the Stadium are flats, the people who move into them will complain about the noise. Idiots.
  17. I was just looking forward to going to the New Wembley, that's all. (Plus, Twickenham is :devil: Union :devil: )
  18. It's a Cookie Cutter Stadium. I can't stand Cookie Cutter Stadiums. I wish they bought in an American company to design it because there might be a bit of charicter to the architecture. Still, i'm just pissed because the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final and Rolling Stones concerts have both been moved to Twickenham. I'm going to both events and was so excited to be going to Wembley. Twickenham..... Meh Wembley.... Yeah Oh well :verysad:
  19. You want Neil Young, Neil Young, and more Neil Young. Besides him, re unite the three surviving members of The Band (Even though Levon Helm is from Arkansas, needs a voice box device like the guy on South Park to speak and hasn't seen Robbie Robertson in years.) Drag Joni Mitchell out of retirement to "Sing up for Amsterdam." Introduce Rush to an unsuspecting world. The White Stripes are just the width of a river away from saying aboot instead of about, so get them up there too. Speaking of Rush. Get the 'Trailer Park Boys' to perform a couple of skits. (With Conky of course.) They're Canada at it's best.
  20. Rumor has it that one of the teams going to London for this NFL game would be the New York Giants. Some say this because of the "extra" home game they got last season v. the Saints. Whoever the teams are, they will be playing this game the week before their bye week. Which means that they go to England, play a game, then have a week to recover from the trip. And you really need a week to recover from two first class charter flights and the best hotel (and everything else) in London, don't you? :laughlong: I wish I could get a week off work to recover whenever I get back from holiday.
  21. As long as it's ready for when Harlequins play in the 'Powergen Challenge Cup' Final in August, I don't care.
  22. Great news! (For me at least.) The NFL are going to have a regular season game at Wembley either this or next October.
  23. I hope it's ready for the Powergen Challenge Cup final. And the Rolling Stones concerts. And a potential regular season NFL game.
