Olympics Six Degrees of Separation...

Oh look, it's broadly a place to talk about special occasions, party tips and to swap present ideas but let's be perfectly honest, this forum is here because I want to get excited about CHRIIIIIISTMAS from about June onwards.

Olympics Six Degrees of Separation...

Mine: 1 - Cousin's DH, with whom I've shared a flat twice (once mine, in Cape Town, once his, in Twickenham), is carrying the Olympic Torch from Bolton to Liverpool. :)

Thought my childhood BFF might make it; she was on the long list for representing SA in the Eventing, but nobody in SA made the cut. (They don't have enough 3* events in SA yet.)

Beat this:
our road was used for filming a BBC ident for the cycling. Our house and car both feature. It was all about amateur / leisure cycling and then being overtaken by a professional, all in the pouring rain of several hose pipes.

Look out on a tv set near you.

A friend of a friend's child is carrying the torch a stretch near us.

My neighbour-bar-one is a world class hockey referee and will be reffing the games.

How's that?!

I wonder if DP knows him - he has been capped for Scotland at hockey, and used to help coach the Scotland Under-21s! The top-class hockey world can't be that big, surely!

My nephew is carrying the torch on the local leg here, and the partner of a friend is performing in the opening ceremony.

My brother is volunteering (I think as an official, ok I admit I glazed a bit!) for the fencing!
