Well less than 4 weeks until the start of the Rio 2016. Follow the link to the below, to the schedule of all the events and when you get to shout on Team GB. 

I love the Olympics and the Paralympics, so many events and so much talent on show across the world. 

I cannot believe it has been 4 years since London 2012, where did that time go?

So, as you will know I was on my holidays in Poland a couple of weeks ago.

Mrs D_P has gone off to the village Dentist for an hour, I'm chilling on the front porch of the in-laws with a Tyskie.

Mrs D_P arrives in a Compact hatchback being driven by a fit looking lass with mousey colour hair.

Lots of blabbering takes place, I'm introduced and lo and behold turns out to be a local lass who was in line to be Polands' Archery contestant in Rio. 

The team is announced next day and no fiteh. Uproar ensues and an investigation reveals that the Polish Coach had over-ridden the selectors and picked the number 5 (or 6) rated Bowgirl. It took about 10 minutes for Twitter to post pictures of the coach & #5 en flagrante.

One week later we get the news that an appeal had been lodged and the lass is off to Rio.

True Story. And bloody annoying because now I have to subscribe to the obscure sport channel that has the broadcast rights down here simply so the Mrs can watch 10 minutes of action at about 4am our time. Harumph

Hmm tricky one Bear.

Mrs D_P has a lot of fiteh or fun single or divorced mates. I kind have a monopoly at the moment on the whole intros thing. (Kinda had a Britto-Polska Dating Agency idea before you bloody screwed up the voting and all went racist.)

So mentioning that she has a FB page or is on Wiki would be a bad thing to do. Especially as everything on her FB page is all girly girly FB stuff and not your usual mumsnet porn....

What to do? Perhaps Sotonians could simply adopt her and go all Twitter in our support?

I'm going to get into the Olympic spirit by taking as many drugs as possible.

Every 4 years the press is full of disaster stories aboout it not being ready, then it is always great.

 

I did love this Tweet from the TSW's favourite Journo Matt Slater

Matt Slater@mjshrimper Aug 1 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Just waiting to get into my room at media village in Rio. Slight delay as they make the bed. As in actually make it.

And the follow up

 

Matt Slater@mjshrimper Aug 1

I asked for a bed. They brought two. Rio 2016 is going to be just fine. They're making me a sofa, too.

This thread must hold the forum record for the most copyright infringements! laughing

Unless Pap has quietly become a sponsorship or media partner, we can only talk about the big upcoming sporting event without breaking the publication rules of...the big upcoming sporting event, by not being too specific about location or date.

These are some of the words that cannot be used during the big upcoming sporting event, a personal sponsor using these words to wish an athlete luck, could get them disqualified.

But as long as we don't publish the official logo, or mock it, we'll be fine - and we will be fine, It'll be Pap and Bletch in prison.

This opening ceremony is something else though.

Bits of it like stuff you'd only consider possible in CGI or acomputer game.  Amazing.

Eww.  Not sure how I feel about them mixing real footage with CGI as they did for the plane flight.
