You reckon the logo is bad, check out the mascots!!



As one commentator amusingly put it, "the consequence of a drunken one night stand between a teletubby and the Michelin Man."

Extraordinary!

I'm attracted to those mascots. Is the blue one supposed to be the female? She's hot.

Ticket prices have been announced:

Quote:
Today we are announcing the ticket prices for the London 2012 Olympic Games and as a Front row subscriber we are thrilled to be able to tell you first.

We want our venues to be filled with enthusiastic sports fans so we have designed a pricing strategy to include a wide range of prices.

We are also delighted to reveal that there will now be up to 8.8 million tickets available for the Olympic Games, an increase of 800,000 from the previous figure, and 75 per cent of these tickets will go on sale from March 2011 through a public application process.

Here are some key features of our pricing strategy to help you plan your Games experience and be ready when applications open in March 2011:

A wide range of ticket prices including:

- 90% of tickets at or below £100
- Two-thirds of tickets at or below £50
- 2.5 million tickets at or below £20

Full-price tickets starting at £20 for every Olympic sport.

A special ‘pay your age’ offer. Young people who are aged 16 and under (at 27 July 2012) will pay their age for a ticket. Seniors aged 60 and over (at 27 July 2012) will pay £16. These ‘pay your age’ ticket prices and senior ticket prices will be available at one-third of the 640-plus sports events.

Opening Ceremony tickets start from £20.12.

The price of a ticket for a wheelchair space includes a companion seat located next to it.
Please note: all ticket prices are in UK pounds sterling (£) and apply to tickets that will be purchased at London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games ticket information. Tickets are only available for sale via this website to residents of the UK or a designated European country.

Residents outside the UK should purchase tickets from their local National Olympic Committee (NOC) or their Authorised Ticket Reseller (ATR). In time, prices will be listed on the NOC/ATR websites in the local currency and will be subject to a London 2012 approved international sales channel service charge.

View all Olympic Games ticket prices

We will announce Paralympic Games ticket prices separately in 2011.

The draft daily Olympic Games competition schedule has also been released. View the draft competition schedule

Over the coming months, we will be telling you all about how you can buy tickets and when they go on sale.

To make sure your family and friends don’t miss out on this exciting information, encourage them to sign up and register their interest in London 2012 ticketing. Send them an invitation now

I believe the U.S. ticketing will be through CoSport.

swear...is Achmad-in-a-jar bored or obsessed or what??

Iran is planning to boycott the 2012 London olympics because........

*drum roll*

THIS:






This is the official logo of the games and Achmad-in-a-jar is complaining that it looks too much like the word ZION which is another word for the holyland (i.e., Israel) and they're threatening to boycott the games unless the IOC change it.

I want whatever that boy is smoking......

Actually I think he's more concerned about his country getting its ass kicked!

What do you think?

Keep alienating the young folks in your country, asshole.

Ultimately, long-term, it's probably is a good thing for Iran. The youth will have the power someday there, and it's ridiculous things like this that gives me hope for Iran being a better neighbor in the future.

But for the immediate future...

London Olympics tickets go on sale 500 days before opening

Quote:
LONDON -- Tickets for the 2012 London Olympics went on sale Tuesday, and the first glitch in the system arose a few hours later.

Fans with Visa cards which expire before the end of August were not able to process their orders. Visa is an Olympic sponsor and is the only card that can be used to purchase tickets.

"It is an issue with Visa rather than the website or our systems," London 2012 said.

Tuesday marks the 500-day countdown to the opening ceremony for the London Games on July 27, 2012.

London organizing chairman Sebastian Coe has been urging fans not to rush to make their online applications for the 6.6 million tickets on sale, however. The deadline is April 26, and fans get no advantage by applying before that date.

Tickets for many sports start at 20 pounds ($32), while the top seats for the men's 100-meter final will go for 750 pounds ($1,200).

More than 2.5 million people have already registered interest in buying tickets.
