What's going on in here? Is nobody watching the London 2012 Paralympics? If the London 2012 Olympics thread was anything to go by...Then my guess is that you ARE all busy watching the games!
Well, if you've not been watching it, it's already started, and the opening ceremony was fantastic, just like the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony. This time the famous faces featured were Stephen Hawking and Ian McKellen! And what a brilliant job they both did too! What they were both saying to everyone was really thought-provoking. I felt inspired, so, I guess that's one way of inspiring a generation, as per their motto / tagline!
Not to brag, but Team GB are currently 2nd in the medal rankings with 63 medals!...That's only 49 medals behind China who are leading the rankings with a haul of 112 medals so far!
For those of you watching in the UK, what are your thoughts on Channel 4 having advertisement breaks? There's been some discussions on that all over the web. One good point that somebody made was that Channel 4 don't get income from the public via the TV license, unlike the BBC. But, still, it feels a bit cheap to me really.
So, who's been watching and what events have been your favourite so far? Been inspired by any of the athletes stories yet? I'm not embarrassed to say that I've shed more than a few tears watching the Paralympics.
All that aside, forgive me, but...
GO TEAM GB!
