Lolympics: Day -1

By Sam Gibbs on at

Welcome to the first in a long line of interesting and amusing wrap-up posts from a day's worth of Olympic news. We'll have the good, the bad, and the downright ugly for you to smile, cringe or just plain titter at. The Olympics haven't even started yet, but already there's some laughable rubbish going on...such as that little flag skirmish last night. Ooops.

It's day -1 to the Olympics, so here's what's gone on ahead of the Olympic Opening Ceremony tomorrow. It can only get better from here, right?
