I am watching ATM, recorded from this afternoon. Loved whole illuminated drum thing at the start, all done without a computer! Amazing.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

Yes it was, brilliant, also very colourful. However will we be able to beat that in 2012?

those who know me well are going to be surprised at this...but i HAVE been watching some of the olympics
i find  i like watching the rowing heats ( theyve ahd me on the edge of my seat) and  the beach volley boy ( not why you boys watch it though lol ) and the one like karate ( not sure what its called though)  i have surprised myself and i dont watch any sport on tv...and havent for years and years.... the water rafting one( again not sure of the proper name) was exciting..
 my little niece was telling me yesterday that she heard someone had died while partisipating at the olympics !!!  is that true? i cant seem to find anything about it..... sad if it is....... more people seem to die as a result of sport.... and  usually very fit people as well
