I must be missing some genes.. I have absolutely no interest in sports. Not even football/soccer and it is often a social disability. Does geek's have their own olympics?

NO!!! I'm talking about "Chariots of Fire" (But Black Adder was good also -- did you see the "Christmas Carol Special"?

When I was a kid we had a black and white TV and only 2 or 3 channels ... if you had told us what the future held... we wouldn't have believed you!

This is why I'm so gratefull for the BBC in the UK. Not only do they not have adverts but they are broadcasting 24 additional channels just for the olympics. The only problem is, you have to decide what to watch live and what to watch on 'catchup'

You mean Black Adder? Of course - I've got also my very own collection of BA :) My wife was so surprised when I showed her Dr House being not so wise as a Prince in Black Adder.

And you totally forget about Rowan Atkinson "playing" the Chariots of Fire :) I daresay, his best play since Black Adder :] Generally the opening ceremony was something huge - even though in Poland I watched it till 3am...

I remember seeing them -- and I remember thinking that it made sense at the time -- but I don't recall what they symbolized...
