London Olympics opening ceremony

C'mon, admit it. That opening ceremony was extremely tacky. I had to turn the TV off, I was so embarrassed for the Brits.

It was like they gave a bunch of money -- though not that much -- to the local HS musical director and said, "Go!". It was sour and smelled like worn, sweaty clothes lying forgotten on a basement floor.

And where was the artistic perspective? The arena looked awful and confused, old and uninspired. It was as if artists played no role in crafting the visuals.

What did you think?

I so agree with you on the opening ceromonies.. Was expecting so much better. Not like they couldn't look back at past shows to get some ideas. Plus could the nbc mods shut up ever?
