I hope that no-one misses this spectacle. I have just watched it - the competitor parade is now on - and it was magnificent.

The only problem is how do we match it in 2012!!!!

Bit late with this I`ve just seen smartpoly`s thread. I tick it.

We are screwed and I notice that one of our leading boxers is returning home without throwing a punch.../sigh

Can't you just imagine the poor sod who has to cobble together an Opening ceremony for London 2012? Right now he's sitting with his head in hs hands, moaning "Aw Sh*t!"

`... sitting with his head in hs hands ...`

Especially with the costs at our rates compared to those in China. Not to mention the numbers in the cast, the work ethic, the ease with which people can be evicted and kept out of the way as necessary - fireworks were good as well; I still remember the `River of Fire` at the millennium :-((

As for our boxer, GANDALF <|:-)>, isn`t that down to someone trying to put him in a lower weight to that he has been fighting at - not a sensible plan I would have thought.
