[LEFT]The events I want to watch are volleyball, boxing, taekwondo, fencing, table tennis, & judo. I’ll probably watch some other events too. I wish they had Karate…not sure why that isn’t an Olympic sport by now.[/LEFT]

[LEFT]So….China not only raised the bar for epic opening ceremonies, they decimated it. I don’t think it can be topped. Everything else will be lackluster by comparison. Oh well.[/LEFT]

I see what you did there.

Hopefully that false start rule change won’t fuck things up he did get DQ’d during the championships last year.

Haha, nice. If USA loses in basketball, there will probably be riots in the streets.

Did any of you guys (or other players) actually make the trip the London for this?

If so, let me know if you need info about any of the arcades/tournaments/sessions and stuff going on while you’re here :slight_smile:

#16

LMFAO

They showed the South Korean flag instead of the North Korean flag at the Olympics (Soccer), and of course BEST KOREA decided to not play.


#17

props to whichever athlete smashes Michelle Jenneke


#18

Can’t wait to see what kinds of uniforms the womens’ volleyball teams wear. :lovin:


#19

Didn’t they say they might have to wear more because of the weather I hope it stays sunny if not :(.

I’m interested in the archery them Koreans.

Watching the Opening Ceremony on NowhereTV on Roku.

WOW - I’m not impressed.

I don’t know if its because I can’t help compare it to the 2008 Bejing Ceremony but…I feel like it’s more of a tourism video/commercial of England/U.K.
Hope everyone enjoys it later. Maybe I need to wait for the NBC stream of this later.
