Post Commonwealth Games
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/commonwealth-games/43443336

Opening Ceremony at 10:30 this morning.

The BBC coverage of the action usually starts from midnight and there are highlights in 200 hours of delight.

I don't usually watch, but was forced to as it was on in the hospital I was visiting, all I can say is that was by far the worst opening I have ever seen, including toys r us.

The intro music where teams are 'presented' was like a warm up band at a rock concert, and ( except for John Farnham, which is always good ) it was down hill from there. I was able to leave after 4 hrs, I pity those who could not.

Where do they find the buffons who organise things like this.

It's a tremendous sporting event.

Many, many countries are involved and some autonomous islands and island states.

The Queen has given massive, unqualified support and it's a force for good.

And, all the participants just love it.

Your amazement that it still exists is a bit surprising, I love Team GB being split into its component parts and then watching Scotland and Wales getting good results.

Well done the BBC for their coverage - it's more happy and cheerful than most sporting events on the box.

My feelings for these games are a bit like my probable feelings towards sex in a few years time, nice idea but I'm just not interested, can't get up for it.......

As above, you could just watch casually.

I’d suggest you start watching the female sports, maybe watch something different from lawn bowls?
