Olympic torch relay


Mr Mistoffelees

I thought the idea of a relay was that the baton, or in this case the torch, should be passed on from one runner to the next. I take it, from this BBC article,that around 8000 have been made to give each runner their own. What a ridiculous waste, especially as some are now selling them for a fat profit and not keeping them as a souvenir.

As I suspected, the £150,000 bid was a hoax, the bidder can't be contacted so the seller is checking how many of the 200 or so other bidders are real.

"The site will not recover in the lifetime of the youngest person now alive"

Do you have any evidence to support that statement, or is it simply your opinion?

Scotland's Hampden Football Stadium will welcome teams from about 7 different Continents (late July)... I hope they (the teams) have 'brushed up' on their Glaswegien English. A few major roads (into / out of) the city centre of Glasgow will be choc-a-bloc for a while. Major construction work is still in progress on a big development area adjacent to Hampden Park.Everyone on the many buses passing by, can see the whole thing taking shape...just two months to go!
