    Too many things are seen in terms of their opportunity cost ' that could have been spent on x nurses or x kidney dialysis machines'. I don't want to have been part of a generation that left no legacy, no concord moments, no man on the moon moments'

    I hope that for a fortnight we smile and enjoy the spectacle and the colour the highs and the lows and we show the world that we are a great nation
    Yeah!!! We need to stop being cynical and get behind the olympics. Just smile and enjoy the experience instead of seeing the negative side of everything this country tries to do.

    And let's face it - we can't do worse than Delhi.

    heheh stop the clockkkkkk yeah good thinking. Let's hope the opening ceremony really isn't a couple of sparklers and a bottle of flat lemonade from Aldi.

    Joking aside though, I do hope the whole thing is spectacular. I do agree the country and heck, most of the world, could use a lift

    Have you seen the velodrome in Manchester? We went in January and loved it. They don't have seats at the very ends. We're going back in October to some championships
