2012 summer Olympics London closing ceremony

The closing ceremony went over stunningly, everything was well executed, the performers did very well, and sadly, the torch was extinguished. This concluded the summer Olympic games , and will probably be the last in our lifetime to be held in England. Everything was stunning. At times like this, we can all see what the world would have been like if we had world peace, everyone coming together, no bias, racism, or violence. Just friendly competition. Everyone had a chance, some did better than others, but in the end, this was a pleasure for every country. Former enemies came aboard as friendly competitors. It's just such a stunning thing to see. We hope everyone enjoyed these Olympics, we know we did. And good luck to those whom will return in another couple of years ;) The final flame burns out -courtesy of foxsports

Nick Delpopolo expelled for eating pot brownies and smoking a bong

Nick Delpopolo was expelled from the Olympic summer games after traces of  marijuana where found in his stool and urine. Delpopo claimed that he was given "bong brownies" prior to the game and therefore it was not his fault. He was expelled from the games and sent home to smoke more bongs and whatnot. Unfortunately, Delpopolo was the USA's best Judo fighter, and he could have brought us home some golds. Nevertheless, we should look at this incident as a joke by his fellow wrestlers, like in the locker rooms, but with higher consequences. Rules are rules, no matter how harmless marijuana is , Delpopolo broke intentional rules, and we are pretty sure he was smoking bongs in his locker room, but hey, now he wont have to get his hands dirty , wrestling foreign men. This picture really shows how out of his mind he is.

Olympics 2012 opening ceremony goes over stunningly

The opening ceremony, currently occurring in London, has gone along VERY smoothly. The firework extravaganzas, the trapeze acts, surprise appearances by stunning people of power, including the beloved queen, the crowned prince and his wife, and much more. We personally loved the jet pack extravaganza and the aerobic stunts with the purple fireworks. We are very happy to witness this first hand, live. Feel free to tune in at 8:00 eastern time, 6:00 western to view the spectacle. And happy opening ceremony to all! The beautiful lights of the opening ceremony

The Opening Ceremony For The London 2012 Summer Olympics

The opening ceremony will be held on July 27, 2012. We are currently unaware of whom will be holstering the torch to it's final destination, but we have reason to belove it may be the chairman of UN from South Korea. We are very excited, and honored, to be covering the entire thing this year, you can stay tuned to our section of coverage as the games progress. As far as whom we want to see leave with the most golds this year? We hold a couple of countries dearly to our hearts ;). But we do wish luck to all athletes of all nations. Cheers, The Order Of The Iron Phoenix Team
