It was totally beautiful. The best thing of it's kind I had ever seen.

And then they had their moment of silence for "those who couldn't be here tonight", and I exploded. Now my family is downstairs and I am upstairs alone, and they think that I'm a giant A-hole.

The '72 Munich olympics deserved a better moment of silence.

I'm steaming, and suffering. When will the world learn to NAME the things that went wrong?

I believe it starts here in a little over 20 minutes. Be off to the pub to watch it in a few moments.

I am watching the parade of athletes now ... I think that means I missed the opening ceremony? Or does it? Not sure if what I am seeing here in Canada is tape delayed or not.

I guess I can watch the replay this evening. Might not be able to focus on it though. Like I said, am watching in the pub.

Our own Danny Doyle put it all together? Nice!

It starts here in several hours. I saw the mayor of London on tv and he reminds me ofa ratinal and cuddly Gar Busey.

The show was on before the athletes, surprised it doesn't sound like it was shown live over that side of the pond

Wow. Lets celebrate the reason for global warming LOL. I love irony.


Aside from snarky comments, I was sort of underwhelmed.

Shouldn't they have shot the Bond stuff at night so there was at least some continuity?

Never mind. Genius.

I too, agree. Except for a couple of spots, I found most of it pretty dull.

The editing and commentary over here really blows. It really hurts to listen to these two twerps.

As for the Bond piece, Bond was seen jumping out near nightfall. Continuity was close enough. NBC edited out the landing in the stadium of Bond and the queen for some reason. No wonder why Microsoft dumped NBC two weeks ago. A real hack organization.
