    The Queen Mary is located in Anaheim???

    OK, staying home today, kicking back and watching sports, mostly football, but some of the 2007 World's Strongest Man, which caught my attention on the Cable Guide, as it stated it was from "Anaheim, CA". So I started to watch it after the International Bowl (same channel).

    So where is the first event? In front of the Queen Mary, with "dasher boards" advertising MetRx, and "Anaheim USA 2007". Never knew that Anaheim moved to the ocean....

    The second event, Huntington Beach and the Pier, with a nice shot of Ruby's Restaurant in the background.

    Finally they had a event in front of the Anaheim Convention Center, using the road that goes between the Hilton and the Marriott. And, as the Hilton was a sponsor, you got shots of the Convention Center or the Hilton (of course, no shots of the Marriott

    And the announcers are having a hard time, as they keep changing what they call the area... One comment was something like, Welcome to World's Strongest Man 2007 in Anaheim. We are at Long Beach, California....

    If you have nothing better to do, it is worth watching, just for a laugh...

    And a second comment, while the World Strongest Man is an international show, which ESPN has the rights to in the USA... You would have thought they would have used Disneyland/DCA in the background. It was filmed in September (and I am bummed I never found out about it, as I would have liked to seen an event or two), so they could have used the Timon lot during the week without interrupting the parks for filming....

    i was in long beach earlier, and i'm thinking that theres an obvious mistake because near the port, there is a street called Anaheim.

    They probably weren't keen on the potential for grevious bodily harm taped in front of an audience on DLR property.
