Blog From The Log, Olympic D-day!

Welcome to The London 2012 Olympic games.

Welcome to The London 2012 Olympic games.

It’s D –day and tonight at exactly 20.12GMT the games will open in dear old Blighty. So we take a last look at the run up to the great event and ferret out some more stories for you delectation. Apparently athletes are on the run from a moth invasion as thousands descends on the Olympic site. They came at the dead of night attracted to the lights that can be seen from miles away and leaving enough grubs for a plague of biblical proportions. Perish the thought that British athletes will parade proudly in uniforms in our opening ceremony soliciting comment that they were somewhat moth-eaten. Look on the bright side, the guys might watch the beach volleyball girls without their outfits but for us gals look on the dark side, men's weightlifting naked! We may be lucky, the moths may be partial to those awful excuses of merchandise masquerading as mascots.
Team GB was welcomed into the Olympic village by a group dancers speaking in tongues (gibberish) and hooting, whilst ringing bicycle bells and blowing whistles. Poems were read in French and performers wearing pom-poms on their heads, jumped around and span in circles to the tune of ‘I want to ride my bicycle’. Athletes looked on in uncomfortable bemusement and laughed nervously, no doubt wishing a great big hole would appear and swallow them up or Scotty would simply ‘Beam Them Up’!
As the football started a few days early North Korea fell foul after bungling organisers screened the South's flag ahead of Olympic women's football match resulting in a walk out by the team for nearly an hour. Leader Kim Jong-un promised retaliation unless we call in the ‘Flying Squad’ to find the culprit. That was a Korea ending mistake for someone.
Now the good stuff. Big Ben chimed non-stop for three minutes to help ring in the London 2012 Olympics at 8.12am today. Special permission had to be gained for the bell at the Palace of Westminster to be allowed to toll out of its regular sequence. So at 20.12GMT lets us all enjoy the start of the greatest ‘Sports Show’ on earth and good luck to all. 

And today also sees that start of the Blogville Olympics 2012.
