Kobe Bryant came out today and said that the current US Mens Basketball squad could beat the original "Dream Team" from 92". I have to disagree. NO FUCKIN' WAY........Their is still not a team in the universe past, present or future, that could beat the 92 US Mens team. No way. They were unstoppable. Look at their stats.
Agreed. Even if you see that Bird was a shell of himself (the Gold medal game was his last ever, due to back pain) and that Magic wasn't 'magic' (due to his layoff), that team still was far deeper than this 2012 team. Not even close. Probably 4-1 in a 7-game series.
Teaser: And on it went for eight days as scores of Olympians, male and female, trickled into the shooter's house -- and that's what everyone called it, Shooters' House -- at all hours, stopping by an Oakley duffel bag overflowing with condoms procured from the village's helpful medical clinic. After a while, it dawned on Lakatos: "I'm running a friggin' brothel in the Olympic Village! I've never witnessed so much debauchery in my entire life." This is a VERY entertaining read. http://espn.go.com/olympics/summer/2012/story/_/id/8133052/athletes-spill-details-dirty-secrets-olympic-village-espn-magazine
I heard from a not too reliable source (the misses who tends to get things wrong that she heard) that according to the radio a certain Mr David Beckham will "have" a BIG part to play at the opening ceremony.Now I do hope that this media image driven tosser is NOT the one to light the Olympic Flame as it will be a serious kick in the bollox to true Olympic Athletes who would be more suitable.
I would like to see Sir Steve Redgrave light it. Quite fitting for Britain's greatest Olympian.I also hope it isn't Beckham but I fear it might be.
Having witnessed the rehearsal for the opening ceremony, prepare to be shocked and amazed.
Check out how many photos the Daily Fail have attached to this story about Voula Papachristou. Blatant pervery, haha:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2178836/London-2012-Olympics-Greek-athlete-Voula-Papachristou-banned-racist-joke-Twitter.html?ICO=most_read_module
I heard the same that it was amazing - not usually what i would watch but I will be now.Its just the thought of Beckham being given a mjor role that annoys me - he has nothing to do with the Olympics.
London 2012: First two world records broken at GamesLondon 2012 has seen its first world records broken as the South Korean archery team set two landmarks at Lord's. Im Dong-hyun, who is legally blind in one eye, set an individual record in Friday's ranking round. In the team event, Dong-hyun, Kim Bubmin and Oh Jin-hyek set a new landmark. South Korea's archery team is regarded as the best in the world and has won 15 gold medals since 1984. Dong-hyun, who won team golds at the past two Games, broke his own 72-arrow mark of 696 by three points. Then, alongside Kim Bubmin and Oh Jin-hyek, he helped score a 216-arrow total of 2,087, passing the world record by 18 points. Lord's played host to the men's individual ranking round on Friday morning and will hold the men's team gold medal match on Saturday. South Korea's men are reigning world champions and have taken four of the six Olympic titles since the sport was added to the Games in 1988. Dozens of spectators were denied entry to the event, the first London-based action of the Olympics, as it was held behind closed doors. Lord's venue manager Vanessa Bellamy said: "This has always been a non-ticketed event but it seems some people believed they could come down on the day."
It should be Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards lighting it.They could set up a ski jump, set him alight using the torch and have him flying through the air, arms and legs flailing about and landing with a thud into the cauldron.
Fingers crossed for Cav!Who's going to light the cauldron? Steve Redgrave? Roger Bannister? I think it will be more original than that - maybe a bunch of schoolkids. Looking forward to it nonetheless! Judging by the opinions of those who saw the rehearsal it sounds like Danny Boyle has done a great job.
