If you want to know what the Aussies were complaining about, the Jamaicans posted videos.

This shows how unfinished their living conditions are. The video shows constructions supplies left in the bathroom with plastic still on the floor, and I guess some rooms only have cheap beds and a few beanbag chairs in them.

This is why our delegation sends a fix-it crew ahead, but I'll bet they had their work cut out for them.

I think the US and Canada have sent entire construction teams. It sounded like it when they unveiled Canada House on the news.

The official Marathon distance of 26.22 miles isn't the actual distance from Marathon to Athens. That was around 24.85 miles or 40 kilometres in European money.

The official distance used in Marathons is the distance used in the 1908 Olympics, where competitors were waved off by the Royal family from Windsor castle to the entrance and a lap of the Olympic stadium in White City.

Just a bit of useless trivia.

Looks like Pele will not be at the opening ceremonies!

The report (BBC) said he is ill. I hope this not serious as there has been too many celebrity deaths this year.

I normally watch the opening ceremony just to see all the participants. Sometimes get a weird up welling of emotions as it is a heavy moment in the athletes' life. All that hard work, time spent, special diets, days away from home and friends to stand there and represent your country.

And that is why I wish Pele would be able to attend!

Bit of random trivia ... if any of you are watching men's swimming and catch site of a Canuck flipping the bird before the race, that's this dude.

Apparently, he and his dad came up with it when he was 8 as a pre-race confidence booster. There have been times when he's had to write formal apologies as he's accidentally directly flipped off entire TV audiences while flipping off his dad who then flips him off from the stands right back.

And why is it all Dr. SUESS?

Like the Whos in Horton Hears The Who.

(or is that alldaylong's playlist?)


All kidding aside this is strange. What is up with Qbert motif and Suess?
