As far as opening ceremonies go, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a sadder affair than yesterday’s farce outside of Buckingham Palace.
The greatest show on Earth kicks off, with Jennifer Lopez bringing the noise, the fans shaking the ground, and some pretty spectacular moments from the performers in the ceremony.
With all the bad (and some good) press the Olympics, it’s great to see videos like this one surfacing. Meet Rachel Onasanwo, who volunteered to help herd fans into the Olympic stadium on Friday. Her dry humour shows a fantasticly sarcastic, yet oddly sincere appreciation for the Games that you simply have to see.
I feel a little bit sorry for the organisers of London’s Olympic Ceremony. They’ve got to follow on the epic opening ceremony held in Beijing, with thousand of drummers beating along in unison. The British just can’t control their people like that.
