An expectant London prepared yesterday to launch the greatest sporting show on earth with excitement reaching fever pitch hours ahead of the Olympic Games opening ceremony (4 a.m. Phil. time).
After seven years of intensive planning, the Games will officially begin in a once rundown area of east London where 80,000 spectators will watch a spectacular show devised by "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle.
Queen Elizabeth II will declare the Games officially open in the Olympic Stadium after a ceremony which Boyle has promised will showcase Britain's history as well as the nation's quirky sense of humor.
