What are you looking forward to?

comment on the article

I am looking forward to the Tennis tournament, as it will have Nadal and Federer challenging for the gold.
Also the football matches should be good, especially if Messi can make the cut.
I am also looking forward to wresling, with a keen eye on Ben Askren of the USA. He's in my opinion the potential biggest thing in the sport since Alexander Karelin.. if he wins anyway!
What about you?

As you can see there is a wide range of sport people are looking forward to. Let's hope we get to see plenty of sport and as little as possible of the analysis, prediction, and general whittering that has invaded televised sport.Failing that alternatives on our friendly red button that are not suddenly terminated prematurely as happened with the recent Wimbledon coverage.There are very few sports which I won't bother with and too many possible highlights to name. Please let us have hours of action and minutes of talking heads not the other way around.I have taken two weeks off work for this. Bring it on !

I don't consider any sport a sport, if you can put the word 'game of' before their name. In my opinion, there is sport and there are games. Just because some games involves exercise, doesn't make it sport. i.e. there is no difference between a 'game of' football and a 'a game of' Subbuteo, so football is therefore just a game in the true meaning of Olympic Sport.

Is it mushroom season already?

I like the dancing horses - I think it's called dressidge. That's really funny. I also enjoy the fencing. And, the four-hour long bit at the beginning where everyone walks into the stadium.

It's actually a football match if you want to split hairs. Game of football is what you play in the park with your mates.

I'm looking forward to the marathon.

Runners collapsing due to intense pollution, or maybe even a protest to make the last marathon look tame, a Tibetan monk, can of petrol and a match.

Apologies if the monk comment was off colour.


You'd think even though it's been 7 years I'd be less bitter about the fact 2008 should have been Toronto.



Serious note

Swimming is always the best part for me.
