    I reckon 'The Games' was up there...but 'The Dream' was very funny. Would love to see a return for London.

    I couldn't believe it when I read about that. 26, fit as a fiddle has a heart attack and is gone. Wow.

    Purely speculation, but surely something has to be off? Whether it be drugs or there was a genetic health issue. Because how the **** do you die of a heart attack at 26 when you're an Olympic athlete?

    Stress would have to be a contributing factor you would think.

    RIP. Very sad I hope he is remembered in some way during the Games.

    Apparently the exercise required tears the heart and causes scarring.

    Probably was some genetic thing involved there, but the training may have heightened the chance of it happening.

    No way! The Games is pretty much the best Australian comedy series I've seen (yes I'm claiming Clarke as an Aussie...).

    Of course, my avatar doesn't make me biased in the slightest.

    Have Channel 9 started doing ads for it in Australia yet?

    A guy I know is in a band which has a song which has apparently has been chosen as the song for the Olympics on channel 9. Churchy, but a solid guy nontheless.

    Ahhhhh London.

    Your weather is ****; your streets are narrow and crowded; your transport system is a confusing hodge-podge of interconnecting rides on crushing buses and subways; and most of your inhabitants are gloomy and unsmiling as they go about their business.

    But it's the great city of the world. a cracking joint. What great time it would be to live or visit there. Love the joint.
