    How did you rate the Games?

    I throughly enjoyed them, besides from the crowds, I felt they were entertaining and the Greeks did a great job in getting all the stadia done on time.

    Bring on Beijing!

    I didn't see a lot (away working, tended to catch the highlights in the pub at night between guinnesses) but I thoroughly enjoyed it all

    <quack> You mean the Beach Volleyball, don't you?

    all of it

    <quack> You very nearly could

    what?

    <quack> See all of it

    Cheeky.

    <quack> You know what was missing, though?

    Lawn Darts?

    <quack> Nope

    No? What then?

    <quack> LAWN DARTS

    I just said that

    <quack> It needed more emphasis

    Yeah they were good, but not great. Sydney was easier to get into. I suppose a part of that was because the games were in Australia, but I still reckon the Sydney games were more fun and just generally better

    I voted for 'thoroughly enjoyed them', although I probably did prefer Sydney, mainly because the time difference was much less significant so I was able to watch all the swimming and athletics finals live, while they were all at 4am here for the Athens games.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Not one to get on a high horse and rant, because I am not a serious Athletics fan..

    However, I will not take a major event seriously when it is marred so badly by unfair practise, scandal, cheating, poor sportsmanship, poor judging etc.

    My games were summed up by the courageous Brazilian guy who was assaulted during the climax, the marathon... I admire him beyond belief for not losing his cool, making a fuss etc. But unfortunatly his outstanding attitude was not what summed up my olympic experience....

    I enjoyed them, but they can't be the best ever cause hardly anyone turned up to the events . Drug cheats and poor judgeing were also drawbacks.
