Being honest? I probably wouldn't pay anything to go. In fact, even if someone was to offer me a free ticket I'd say 'no thanks'. I believe in being proud of my country and wanting team GB to do well but there's a limit to how much I can care about the olympics because I just don't enjoy sport. I don't like playing it and it's very rare that I'll take any pleasure in watching it unless perhaps it's boxing or something that looks particularly amazing like gymnastics, ice skating and sometimes diving. Even with those sports I think I'd rather watch them in the comfort of my own home.

I 've just been on the official ticket website and there's still tickets available for the opening ceremony. There's two choices left £1600 each or the rather strangely priced £2012 each.
bear in mind what you're paying to see is a field with some animals that's meant to represent the British countryside and a concert, is it really worth £1600 to see that?
No, I'd rather spend the money on buying sports memorabilia (signed baseballs, basketballs, photos etc).
