    I actually dislike the 2012 Olympics, money should be spend on saving the country, the logo is Simpsons paedophilia for goodness sake (and I preferred the goatse logo).

    Im excited about watching the GB football team (even without Beckham), but maybe more excited to watch the Brazil football team. Definitely worth a cheeky tenner, and who doesnt want to see the Mens 100m final?

    However, all of this is irrelevant as i live in London and i have to listen to Boris Johnsons voice at every damn train station, travel an extra 2 hours a day to work, and the night bus i always get home on a friday night after work when drunk is not running for 3 weeks.

    Therefore ... Olympics = Meh

    Not looking forward to hearing about it 24/7 but like watching a lot of it.

    I like how the poll allows you to vote for more than one option.

    I don't really care about it and I probably won't watch it.

    Apart from when Tom Daley is diving :sexface:

    Why? What's happening?
    I cant tell if that's sarcastic or not? haha - Im hoping to see Usain Bolt smash the world record for the 100m and maybe even the 200m events.

    Some people saying he could do the 100m in 9 secs and the 200 in 19!

    Well to me, and I assume many others, that's as exciting as when Michael Schumacher, Brian Lara and Tiger Woods were breaking records. It happens, cool... but... meh...

    Aw i love a good old record breaker. Makes it feel like you have seen something worth watching!

    Bolt's record as it is could be there for a while, but if he breaks it again it will probably be there another 10 years

    Well, Olympics - so far, so utter embarrassing failure that's more used up money and embarrassed the reputation and standing of the entire nation than... something good.

    If by the end of it the pinnacle is still Mr Bean, well...

    I feel quite unpatriotic... I haven't really watched any of the Olympics yet, not even the opening ceremony - although, I was abroad at that point, so I'll excuse myself

    To be honest I can't stand it, I don't like the Olympics when its in other countries so my opinion is going to change just because its in my own country.

    People keep saying you should be proud that its in our country. I am proud to be British but still the Olympics is boring to watch, rather make the most of my summer.
