So. Very. British. I don't mean all the famous landmarks, or even that it was the Queen and James Bond. It is that peculiar brand of cheese found only in British entertainment that I love so very, very much. Straight faces the whole way, totally understated, totally ridiculous: "look, it'll be awesome, just go with" turned up to 11.

Any wonder that these are the people who make Doctor Who?

Bungles: FriarReb98: Just catching up on last night's thread, and I noticed that they apparently cut the Olympic Oath out of the NBC broadcast. The farking hell is that shiat?


Does that mean all US medals are technically not valid?


It's OK, they repeated the oath this morning in a private ceremony, out of an abundance of caution.

I had the opportunity to see the ceremony live (thank FSM, BBC 1, and the Internets) and the NBC presentation. I thought I was watching something completely different.

NBC clearly did a cut and paste with commercials and Phelps, et. al. We're going to stick with "Auntie Beeb" for the rest of the Games.

NBC: Nothing But Commercials.

"Welcome back. While we gone Di Arrunnzio scored 7 hits and took the lead 8 - 2 in this gold medal match. We'll be back after this message for Budwiser Clydesdale Piss."
"Welcome back. While you were gone Vallezzia came back and won the match 15 -14 in overtime. This has been Brent Slackjaw, and if you had been watching our sister network you could have seen the medal ceremony 45 minutes ago. And now back to whoever it is in our studio in New York with a list of events that have been tape delayed for our convenience."

NBC might be an American network, but they are making a dog's breakfast if not a total shambles of these Games. I am so glad we lined up that condo in Rio.

Elegy: Was anybody else shocked by the number of tasteless dictator comments by the NBC commentators? Come on people, now is not the time - you're making Americans look stupid again.

/Idi Amin, anyone?


There's a reason why those two aren't professional sport commentators. And now we know why. NBC should have chucked the more famous faces for real sport commentators who know when to shut up when things are happening and when to chat during the quiet parts.

Oh, and the opening ceremony was the cheesiest opening ceremony that I have ever seen for any country.

It was also the most fun.

I loved watching it and trying to make out all of the references because they were going fast and furious. It was less an Olympic opening ceremony and more like a West End musical. I was entertained.

See, Beijing had an opening ceremony. London had a show. And it was an awesome show.

From what I've read, she still has the ability to sack parliment and call a fresh election. But unless the election led to a big shake up, I expect the first act of the new parliment would be to depose her.


Would she order the royal consort to teabag the back benchers first as part of the sackiing ceremony?

As a long-time Bond fan and an admirer of the Queen, last night's event was utterly, utterly brilliant. I rather doubt Charles would have the gumption or humour to engage in such sport.

William and Harry would likely stage a stadium ambush themselves, however... William flying the chopper and Harry rappelling down to show center.

jumping from a helicopter and then having to quickly get changed and get to her seat is not easy.

Not to mention the months of prep wor.
