    I knew it would be London. Good work peoples and enjoy the huge crowds and inability to get anything done for about 6 months coz everything about 'the olympics' takes up all the resources.! yay.. Go the olympics!

    I knew it would have to be in London or Paris. I was hoping for Paris myself. Madrid and Moscow didn't have much of a chance I think. And IMO New York would not be a good place to hold the olympics. But I'm happy with London. I'm thinking I might want to go to the games in 2012 now that I know where they'll be, but who knows if I'll still feel like it 7 years from now.

    I'm shocked. I think like most people in England I assumed Paris would get it.

    Congrats to all of our British friends here (and everwhere else), it's about time!:hail: :hail:

    IMHO a much better choice from all the rest of the competing cities. Can't wait for the Olympic Football final game!!! :)

    I'm extremely happy. The football will be great. Old Trafford, New Wembley, New Arsenal, New Liverpool, Newcastle, Millenium Stadium....all massive footballing venues.
    I live in Brighton, a mere 50 miles away, so it is going to probably affect me a lot if in seven years I am still here.

    My daughter is quite appealed by the idea! She is now more resolved than ever to qualify for the German Swim Team by then (har-har). She'll be 19 at the time, and it is always good to have a goal (unless you go by PlasticSpanner's wife's Office Rules that also say: "Aim Low, Achieve Goal, Avoid Disappointment" ;) ) I would then accompany her, I think. (Well, ok, her chances are 1:10.000.000, but well... you have to start somewhere, right?)
