@MJ Mod: TY so much for these great 2012 Olympics threads-That schedule is perfection-I really appreciate all the work you put into that-I can just choose the events I want to see and there is the schedule-that is really cool!

Looks like the opening ceremony is about to begin in about 45 minutes-I love that - all the flags and the torch-I wonder who is lighting that torch this year?

Go Team USA!!

Here is a picture from the opening ceremony:

No offense to the UK meant here but IMO that opening ceremony was not what most countries choose to depict for the Olympics-just saying-it was kind of dark and showed a political edge - what with the red coats and all-this is supposed to be about good sportsmanship-fair competition and NO political anything for 17 days for ALL countries-

These O-games are really exciting-so much behind the scenes drama though-as usual the media pump up the volume on the garbage-when will they learn-people want the happy postive angles in the news-not the sad negative stuff-

The VB and swimming events are rocking these last couple of days though WOW!!

Equestrian finals

Post by Admin on Wed Aug 08, 2012 12:41 pm

@CSLMJ: Have you been watching the equestrian events? I have been trying to catch them-watching the "jumping finals" this morning-The horses are so beautiful! Netherlands leading thus far-Kingdom of SA tied for 1st from time trials - now in 2nd - although Ireland and 5 others still to compete-I think Sweden is coming up! Wow Ireland just tied for 1st (Gold) Now France - lol--oops dropped two rails Sad

Have you seen the cool hurtles? The "Abbey Road" and "The Tower Bridge and I think the ship is "The Queen Mary" and "Buckingham Palace" and the "Knights" -so artistic!!
