Providing the closing ceremonies pass without incident, these games must go down as one of the best held/organised everTongue

They brought work to thousands and hopefully will leave a legacy in that part of London that will be upheld for years to comeSmile

I find it hilarious that my facebook status feed is full of hundreds of people complaining about the talent chosen, and commenting on every aspect of the closing ceremony in a generally negative way. Does no one know where their remote control channel changer is?Tongue

The BBC camera people made a superb job of covering the closing ceremony!

Even if some of the "talent" was past its use-by date, the techies were world class.

The light show in the closing ceremony was amazing. The BBC commentators remained fairly quiet, which helped the enjoyment no end!.
It was great to see all the athletes having a great time.
Two big plus points, Boris didn't speakSmile and Macca didn't singSmileSmile

From the section I watched the best bit was showing John Lennon singing Imagine, brilliant and particularly the lyrics quite appropriate.

Oh, I had also forgotten that Prince Harry's official name was Prince Henry Of Wales.

I looked at those but a bit too rich for me. Still trying for the games though. Smile

Yes, that was one of the great moments. I thought the Annie Lennox sequence was very impressive too - she has a powerful voice and such theatrical flair to match!
There were quite a few other great moments like the Eric Idle "Always look on the bright side of Life" piece and Brian May with Jessie J.

Number 26 - I thought for a split second the fencer was using a light sabre!

I was really impressed that the Royal Family seemed to be at almost every event. They did really well getting that many tickets, must have had a lot of luck with the website.
