Don't get according to what alphabet they're marching in though, not the one I learned.

Take it seriously, but play it lightly kind of thing, eh.
Probably. The 2002 commonwealth games ceremony was OK.

The 1991 world student games, anyone remember that? in sheffield, where the woman with the torch entered the stadium, dropped it, the flame went out, and she had to continue anyway, and pretend to light the thingy mi jig.....

What a disaster - symbolic of the WSG's legacy for Sheffield, a big compounding debt that exists 17 years later!

Of course. Young, fit athletes . As Jack Dee said, the olympic village must be one big none stop orgy, what with all those young fit athletes (with unusually high levels of hormones).

the ceremony was amazing, possibly the best opening ceremony since the first Olympics ever held!

The photo's you're posting BSD are incredible! I'm hunched at my desk squinting at screens when I should be in China ogling hot Chink Chicks in Skimpy Olympy outfits! Show us yer birds nest!
