The Olympics start tonight (well, technically, about 15 minutes from now). I’m something of an Olympic nut – I may not be overly interested in sports on a regular basis, but every 2 years, you can’t tear me away from coverage of the Olympics. That said, while the events are entralling, the opening ceremony has always left something to be desired. So, courtesy of the BBC, here now, as a public service, is “How to enjoy the opening ceremony“.

As in 2002, I’ll be naming an official “Random Thoughts Olympic Babe”. But I’m still working on that.
