    Ahh cant beat BBC's huw Edwards commentating... bit depressing for the olympics :)

    According to a friend its not live in the USA which must be annoying. He may be only speaking about a certain area so who knows.

    I dont think your missing much though. The start was bring and was just trying to bring history into the olympics. The Rowan Atkinson and Daniel Craig bits have been the best so far. The rest, just ameteur, not up to beijing standard which for some reason Danny boyle was comparing it to :\

    It's not live in the US

    Tape delayed to be on for prime time TV. AKA complete bullshit. Fuck that noise.

    But I'm just going to get it over with now...


    USA! USA! USA!

    (we're going to win the Olympics! Like we always do!)

    Looking forward to watching us play basketball. Even if I hate LeBron.

    Not live? That's disgraceful.

    I heard on the BBC broadcast that the last country, Great Britain, will be arriving close to midnight. I also haven't seen any photos emailed by Torchbearers of what happened to their Torches after they left the Olympic Torch Relay. I sent some because the London 2012 Ceremonies Team asked me and other Torchbearers to do so for the Opening Ceremony.

    Sorry, being almost midnight my brains half asleep so I dont understand what you said :P, but if your asking what happened to peoples tourches, they got to keep it by either paying or got it for free if the company that nominated them is nice enough to pay for it...

    I'm saying that I was the 50th Torchbearer of the 31st day of the Torch Relay and I carried the Flame in Pickering. I was emailed by the London 2012 organisers on Tuesday 17th June and the message said
    We’re making a Torch Relay highlights film for the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony and we’d like to try and include your memories in it too, with a compilation of photos and videos taken by friends and family.

    If you took your Torch home with you, we want to see what happened after it left the Relay and the reaction it got from everyone who saw it.
    I still haven't seen any of the photos sent by Torchbearers. Also are you British? You're local time (5:50pm) made me think that you live in North America. If you are British I can help you change your timezone after the Opening Ceremony has finished :)

    Yes but I don't think the people parachuting were really Queen Elizabeth II and Daniel Craig because I think I saw the Queen appear by walking through a door in the Stadium but I still liked the video :)

    Just saw the end of the ceremony. So much awesome music has given the UK to the world.

    BTW, I must confess Sir Paul's face scares me. I mean, he's looking like a wax statue to me, and less facial hair than Justin Bieber (who at least has eyebrows...)

    Me verás volar por la ciudad de la furia...

    I love gymnastics and swimming. Looking forward to their events. Olympics bring many nations on one platform and there is a thrill and hype all around. I think this time again there would be a lot of fun and enjoyment.
