If the Olympics have as much benefit for East London as they did for Barcelona leading up to/after the 1992 games, I think it'll be well worth it.

The Barcelona games were probably the best organized of them all.

Great, just what London needs - more tourists.

Even though its always good to see the French defeated at something (the English patriot in me wells up with emotion), I for one am not all that happy.

Still... the surprise was kinda cool.

London is a great tour city. There are all sorts of cool things to do. I love it. Damn, I need to win the Georgia lottery.

I know. I will be rooting for a devaluation of the pound.

Otherwise, these will be the most expensive Olympic games... ever.

But congratulations!!!

Yeah saddle me with debts and triple the value of my house!!

True there are cons but the pros outweigh them by far.. We have plenty of obnoxious tourists visiting us all the time and manage to deal with them. Plus as well as george Bush and all the Americans we have loads of great tourists!! It's going to be great!!!!!

excuuuuuuuuuuuse me, but many, many Americans are wonderful tourists (yes, yes, many aren't), and in fact, i'd even venture to say that the worst tourists are British -- at least that's what i kept hearing from the Dutch and people from Cyprus.

and let me know the next time your national football team can get through a tournament without your fans starting an international incident.

Sleep in the game?

I guess I used a very generic word and I apologize if I offended anyone who is a fan of other national teams.

As you may have understood, I was just wanting to voice my lack of appreciation for the English soccer team. No pun intended.
