Did Bisping light the torch?

I missed the opening ceremonies last night. Did England's very own, Michael "The Count" Bisping light the torch?

Leading up to it, there was this secrecy behind it. Who better to do it than England's native son? Isn't he like one of the most popular athletes in the country....Bisping says so himself.

I have an idea ask David beckham if he's ever heard of the count............ Phone Post

David Beckham delivered the torch, gave it to Steven Redgrave. Redgrave then gave it to a team of aspiring athletes that will be the future of the UK's Olympics. The team of young athletes then lit the copper petals on fire that every country carried. Phone Post

Kind of off topic....I don't know much about soccer, but wasn't Beckham a collasal failure when he signed that huge contract to play pro soccer in the US? I seriously thought he was more popular for his modeling stuff than his actual athletic skills. A lot of people outside the native country may not hear of some of these guys. Who's Steven Redgrave? If you ask 10 random people, I guarantee 90% would have no idea. I don't mean that disrespectful...but a lot of great Olympic athletes, especially from years ago, are not household names in today's age.<br /><br />Anyway, I would have paid to see Bisping light the torch and then give the interview afterwards.

i see what u did there
