Not Paralympic related but did anyone else read about the javelin accident at the weekend in Germany. It happened in Dusseldorf, a 74 year old Offical was killed when he was speared threw the throat. He had bent down to measure a throw before the javelin had landed. The 16 year old who threw the javelin is receiving psychiatric counselling. My first thought was what's a 74 year old doing stood in the firing line of javelins ! Worth a look on the BBC sports site.

only just rediscovered this tune. it should have been the olympic theme.

the lyrics are just norwegian names of olympic events until the end...

"en OL-ring
en lekegrind
en utopi
på virkelig

en posisjon
en prosesjon
en visjon

harmoni
en måneds tid"

which translates, roughly, as

"an olympic ring
a playpen
a utopia
for real

a position
a procession
a vision

harmony
a month's time"

I forgot about the opening ceremony was it good?

I'll watch some, but for a spectator its all a bit confusing.

Just tried to watch it on my PC and got the following:

They are feeding one channel and can't do it right, say what you like about the BBC but their coverage was faultless.

Gave up watching the opening ceremony last night because of commerical breaks. Does everything happening in the stadium sit there and wait whilst commercials are on? No. THEN STOP SHOWING THEM. Fuckers.

That's me not watching it then. I'm likely to throw stuff at the monitor if an advert comes on during an event.

The commercials part pay for the rights though.

Obviously I'd rather BBC was showing it..
