A general view of play between China's Zhang Xi and Xue Chen and Russia's Anastasia Vasina and Anna Vozakova during the preliminary round of the Women's Beach Volleyball at Horse Guards Parade, central London.
Absolutely Amazing Grand Opening!!!! Made me really proud!! And I'm not even British!! I honestly enjoyed the "History", the "High Culture Level", the "Humour", the "Setup" the... the... the... ...
Absolutely Stunning Quality and Wise/Clever Production!!!! What can I say about the Royalty and the Celebrities and the Performers and the Crowds of Volunteers... all Peeeerfect!!!! The Queen... so bold to jump from the sky and so humble to accept to participate, Mr Bond... so good in his job and so protective, Mr Bean... always so "unimaginable", unpredictable and unbeatable, Mr Beckham... so "gentlemanish" (forgive my grammar) !! THANK YOU ALL so much! You made us laugh n' weep n' cheer n' shout n' scream... you made us feel all sorts of emotions and... made us PROUD!! (I wonder how I'd feel if I was English myself!). But I'm so proud I live in this country!
And I wonder why some people write so negative comments about all this. WHY? Is it because they are so uninformed they just don't know what they'd seen? Is it because they're so uneducated they do not know how to appreciate and judge right? Or is it because they're just "British Haters"? Maybe "Western Civilization Haters"? You know, those tribes hating all having to do with pogress and high level and culture and values and honour and pride etc etc.
C'mon Englishmen and British Ladies, get on the Web and post some honest comments!
For christ sake --- can some PA or anybody, PLEASE kindly ask queenie to bloody smile for once !!
i admit i did not expect anything as good as Beijing put on but this was spectacular in a different way. and very much British.
1.as others have said. please could the Queen at least LOOK as if she was enjoying it. i know it was a long ceremony and shes not so young now but a smile takes no real effort.(unless she wasn't feeling very well of course.)
2. an absence of disabled and paraplegic attendance and involvement and why didn't the para Olympians take part in the athletes parades? apart from the deaf children's choir who were very good, and the appearance of Mohammed Ali who, bless him, didn't appear to know what was happening or what to do., there was nothing else that alluded to or involved any other disabilities yet with their own Olympics coming up they should have been involved in the opening ceremony.
