Earguy: melewen: shotglasss: LadyBelgara: IMDWalrus: I really hope NBC doesn't cut The Who.

They mentioned The Who was coming back, so we can hope they didn't mention it just to taunt us.

Who?

The band on the stage

Yes, who?


The group playing on stage
 
2012-08-12 10:27:07 PM  
It's kind of obscure, but if the Who came back and sang 'Tea & Theater', it would be a fitting end.
 
2012-08-12 10:27:09 PM  
THIS is the National Anthem of Brazil!?!?

Good for you, pumpkin!

rio is going to be so much fun.

It's kind of a,axing that there were no terrorist attacks on these Olympics. A testament to all the work London and GB put into security.

It's also evidence that we are vastly over-scared of terrorism.

Ok, fast-forwarded through the change-over.

Brazilian national anthem sounds like it'd be fun to dance to!
 
2012-08-12 10:29:07 PM  
Just a heads up, the Who perform THREE songs. If you see fewer than that, NBC really farked you over.

London really pulled this off after so much concern about them blowing it. And they really did seem to appreciate it in the long run so hopefully this will have a lasting positive effect on London.

FriarReb98: BBH: Watching this makes me glad Chicago did not get 2016. How bad would that have been?

I can sum it up exactly how bad it would be for you:

Dan Aykroyd, Jim Belushi and John Goodman would've got up on stage with the surviving members of the Blues Brothers Band and done "Sweet Home Chicago."

At this point, I'm guessing they're waiting for Belushi to join his brother before attempting to bid.


I was going to say they'd have James Iha doing his version of Smashing Pumpkins songs, but this is probably right.

Personally I think Cheap Trick would've been cool. Hell yeah.

Lost Thought 00: A good song has never been sung by a choir.


I have a christmas album by the Morman Tab that begs to differ.

Well, considering the big story to start was how G4S screwed the pooch and were undermanned to start and as a result they had to call in military and extra police for security staffing...

Poland actually has an awesome national anthem. One of my favorite. Very 19th century nationalist.

We are going to see blood coming out of censors' ears for it.

They could have had no security and there'd have been no attacks.

Considering the London attacks after it was announced that they got the Olympics, I'm not so sure about that. At least in London and Major Euro cities.
 
2012-08-12 10:31:31 PM  
Also, they cut the speeches - which, I gotta say, I'm kinda OK with...

To be fair, that's exactly what Annie Lennox was going for.

star_topology: NO TAPE DELAYS in 2016


I wouldn't count on it. Having it in the same time zone means most competitions will be happening during the daytime. They will still push that stuff to prime time.
 
2012-08-12 10:32:02 PM  
In my opinion, the Queen is going to come out next carrying a turkey vulture by the neck, and she will then repeatedly punch it in the face and call it a "whinging twat". Then she will drop-kick it all the way up into the audience, at which point the corpses of Sid and Nancy Vicious will dig their way out of the ground and give her a caramel apple and eight DVD copies of the movie "Hope Floats".

Ohhhh... Black person with a broom in a prison jumpsuit tapdancing.
