I keep trying to tell you lot that I'M SHY but you never believe me! Anyway, at the end there was a fun trivia quiz where we'd all been asked to submit a question...about the Olympics! Most of the other questions were on which country won the most gold medals, etc., etc., but SOMEONE submitted the following: Who created the Opening Ceremony for the London Olympics? a) Boris Johnson b) James Bond c) Mr Bean d) Danny Boyle? Bonus Question: Whilst he was organising the Ceremony at the weekend, what was he doing during the week? a) Getting stuck on a zip wire b) Saving the world from evil c) Driving his Mini d) Filming the movie "Trance"? See me if you don't know the answ ...

London Olympics coverage drove BBC iPlayer requests to top 196 million The BBC iPlayer enjoyed a record month in August, thanks largely to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Over 196 million requests were made during August alone, with the highest number coming in the first week of that month, accumulating 51 million requests from 11.5 million users. With Olympic fever sweeping the nation, the BBC also celebrated the highest-ever proportion of live TV requests accounting for 32 per cent of the total number of iPlayer requests. This broke the Beeb’s previous record of 24 per cent set in July – Andy Murray’s Wimbledon final and the start of the London 2012 Games.

Oh No They Didn't! The Biggest Olympics Blunders The Olympic Games are always packed full of heartwarming and uplifting stories -- but just like everything in life -- where there are winners there has to be losers, and some do it in spectacular style! RadarOnline.com has scoured the games over the decades to find the biggest bloopers of the Olympics. 7. Even before Friday's Opening Ceremony had begun, organizers of the 2012 London Olympics had to issue a hasty apology to North Korea's women's soccer team after the South Korean flag was shown by mistake before their match against Colombia. The massive faux-pas was highly offensive to the Communist country, who consider their closest geographical neighbors to be puppets of the West and the relationship between the nations is notoriously strained. 6. In an effort to encourage developing countries, the 2000 Sydney games introduced a wild card drawer -- much to the embarrassment of Equatorial Guinea swimmer Eric Moussambani, who had to swim solo in a qualifyin ...

Okay, so all my friends are telling me via emails how terrific the Opening Ceremony was last week for the London Olympics. Really? I thought this was the worst and most boring opening ceremony ever! The Industrial Revolution? That's your theme for the greatest SPORTS exhibition on the planet! Really? The whole thing was one stupid and way too long event after an other. Even Paul McCartney couldn't save the day at the end. I am sure that the people there thought it was good but that's because they can only see bits and pieces of it as it goes by! At 58 years old I have seen a fair share of Olympic opening ceremonies and all I can say is that this one was just Stupid! Just my opinion but I am guessing I am not alone here.

I was appalled by NBC and their coverage of the Opening Ceremony for the London Olympics. Lauer, Costas, and Veira were highly unprofessional, offensive, tasteless and never knew when to shut up. It's one thing for NBC to not offer live streaming, but it's another when they cut a memorial to the victims of the 7/7 terrorist attack in London for a Seacrest interview and go on to criticize the IOC for not providing a tribute to the 40th anniversary of the Munich attack. Then to go on and joke about Idi Amin, Kim Jong Il and athletes from countries that aren't going to contend for medals was disgusting. Also, talking over live music and patronizing the viewers makes our media laughable compared to the BBC.
