It passes right past my house on Friday at approx 19:09!:bounce:

PS When I was in Rhodes in 2008 I got a chance to hold one of the torches while they were waiting for the handover as it passed through the old city.:beer:

I was like 8 years old when they had the L.A. Olympics and my parents took us to see the guy running with the torch. The announcer person was making a big deal about the flame being the same flame brought from Greece so it was kind of funny when the torch went out. They just relight it and continued on but you'd think if they were going to make a big deal about it then someone might have remembered to top up the fuel for it. ;)
