5 3/4 Reasons I Can't Wait for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies

Only a few more hours until the London 2012 Olympics begins. It seems like only yesterday they announced the $800,000 logo that started making people have seizures. My how time flies.

But now that it’s flown here and straight into Platform 9 3/4, I have 5 3/4 reasons that I’m ridiculously excited about the 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremonies.

    Not outfits. Not uniforms. Costumes. Athletes will be in hot uniforms the rest of the weeks, but not tonight. No. Tonight is the Tony Awards Red Carpet portion of the competition. And we will be the judge of that. Get ready, Twitter.

    It's $2,500 for a ticket to Opening Ceremonies. Plus, no costume analysis on twitter while you eat your poorly executed Bangers & Mash. Infographic from Media Bistro right here.
