Just wanted to give a nice big, "Hip, Hip, Hoorah!" to the UK [London] for putting on a spectacular Summer Olympics!

What was your favorite part?

I'd have to say I thought the torch-lighting at the opening ceremonies was great! We wondered & wondered what those "things" were that were being carried along with each country's flag -- great, great, great!

I never usually watch much of the Olympics, but I found it really interesting this year. I liked the opening ceremony more than the closing ceremony - it was spectacular when they lit the cauldron! I loved the symbolism of it too.

I wish we lived a bit closer so that we could have seen the Olympic park! We saw a football game in Manchester (Japan vs Egypt - it wasn't very exciting), but the rest we just saw on TV.

Roll on the Paralympics! :D

OMG, the equestrian Paralympics! THE most awesome sport ever! If you've never ridden English or Dressage, it's impossible to appreciate, but this is the ultimate in trust & communication between horse & rider!

Becky, glad you got to see some Olympics "football," even if not that exciting.

I'm looking forward to seeing some wheelchair rugby - from what I've seen it looks very fast paced and exciting! :)

I didn't watch any of the Olympics this year. Probably the first year where I didn't watch it.
