||All the athletes have gathered into this wonderful new Space Olympic Stadium, Jane
That's right Jim, and I must say this has been the most beautiful, joyous and moving procession I've ever seen.
Me too, Jane - We now await the Olympic Torch, which was launched from Earth only 4 hours ago and can see it fast approaching on the Domed Olympic Oscillating Mega Screen.
I'm so excited.
Ooh look, Jane - The Timer has started counting down the seconds and spectators and athletes alike are counting down aloud in their respective languages.
Jim, let's join in, shall we? OK 6-5-4-3-2-1
||This seems a bit half-bvaked. I seem to remember a whole load of stuff on low g and zero g sports, which has disappeared (jutta archiving process??).
However, I was extremely alarmed to discover that that doyenne of halfbakery sports discussions, 3 team Hockey, has also gone. Dismay. Horror. Is there no filtering in the old idea deletion process?
||goff: Ideas shouldn't have been deleted for no reason. I guess either the creator wiped it, or the creator left and it was wiped automatically. Anyone know whose idea it was?
||goff, those were my ideas, which vanished with my recent exodus. Should I repost?
||This idea contains elements of Space Ball, only extrapolated out to a separate event.
||waugs., I had forgotten about your demise and subsequent resurrection. I think you should repost 3 Team Hockey, as it is the discussion that got me hooked on HB in the first place. But that's just me being sentimental.
