      I really want to go!

      Have you seen the price of some of the tickets? The most expensive ones for the final day of the athletics are over 700!!! DH would like to watch the boxing (which I hate) but I want to see the athletics.

      If we do go I think we'll need a pair of binoculars as we'll be in the cheap seats at the top of the stadium. DS will be due to get his GCSE results in August of 2012 so I've just tried to work out if we can get to the Olympics for a day and WDW and be back in time for results.

      I really want to go, don't really care to what but I'd love to just be part of it. My dad works for one of the sponsors so he said I might be able to get tickets through him....no discounting but might be easier to get something

      I've been colour coding my preferences today, it is amazing how many clashed :(

      My biggest hope is a ticket to the final of the Mens Basketball, followed by a ticket to the Boxing finals on the 11th
      After that - my favourites would be athletics, swimming, cycling, tennis and football :)

      I'm going to also put in for some tickets for random events like Table Tennis and archery - mainly because it won't bother me who I am watching in those events

      Did anyone see that bargin 2,012 ticket for the opening ceremony. I was going to order some, but the limit on tickets is only 4 and I wouldn't know who to leave behind at that price

      It's just something I was doing for myself, I printed out all 30+ pages and used highlighters to work out what I want to see.
      Red for Must See
      Blue for Like to See
      Green for Only if not clashing with above

      I am a bit odd like that, I like to organise

      I've had a good look this afternoon and would really like to go to some of the swimming and gymnastics too. DH wants to see the cycling so hopefully we'll get to see something although we both want to see some of the athletics.

      Probably watch most of it on TV - the prices for the tickets are ridiculous!

      DH and I went to the Olympics when they were in Atlanta. We were there the night BEFORE the bombing. Acutally at the venue that was bombed.

      We saw USA vs. Italy baseball. Tickets were super-duper cheap. I know that when we went, ticket prices were based on popularity of the event. I.e., we wouldn't have dreamed of trying to go to a swimming, diving, etc. event. We just were happy to get to go and say we'd done it. The game was a shutout with USA winning. It was so fun just to get to be a part though :D.
