    we're suffering from channel overload here too though. I'm watching the football and I have to say, I think the young team is doing much better than the "proper" England team has been. OK, they're perhaps not the most experience but there's some heart and feeling going into the game.

    Meanwhile DW is watching swimming and at least two other events on the laptop as well as texting me to find out the results of other stuff :/

Fine but then are there any seats left in the thread ;( turns out there were LOADS!!!! So I've got a couple of hundred free seats to this thread if anyone wants one, it's looking a bit bare on the photos at the moment :/

    Anyway I may only be here for the champagne and the social side of things hic but I figure I've paid enough for it over the last seven years that I may as well stick around and get what I can!

    Also, I have to say that the Red Button coverage thing on the BBC is amazing! The fact you can see whatever sport is going on at any time! The remote control is getting a hammering I have to say.

    So excited about Becky Adlington - that was an AMAZING swim!!! Lots of jumping up and down here, shouting very loudly, and scaring all of the animals in the house

    absolutely brilliant use of technology. We have a go at the beeb, justifiably a lot of the time, but the way they've covered the games has been nothing short of amazing.

    I bet, and hope, that tons of young people have found themselves tuned into a sport they otherwise never would've thought about and perhaps been inspired by it.

    Very proud of team GB , we are but a tiny little Isle in the grand scheme of things but I think we have put a team out for pretty much every single event.
    Nothing , but nothing is more British than being the valiant underdog.

    Ooo one more thing ... Absolutely no advertising in any of the arenas yet, have you noticed that

    I haven't watched enough to be honest but as I look now after you've mentioned it yep that's certainly true on the football. Surprising but excellent!
