2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow

[DOUBLEPOST=1406147970][/DOUBLEPOST]All of the countries are introduced by a little scottie dog wearing a coat with the countries name on it. How CUTE
Scotland in mustard and turquoise kilts.....our uniforms don't look too bad after all :)
Charles and Camilla are there........The Queen gave a short speech and opened the games.

Well in 20 years of following such events that was one of the worst opening ceremonies I've ever seen. Love how they spent thousands on a big screen to introduce all the teams and in the end a dog in a coat did the job much better!

Did you get all of the Unicef stuff during the athletes parade or did Ten use it to screen proper ads? As nice an idea as it was it felt forced and really out of place - it's supposed to be a sports ceremony, not a telethon. It could probably have been done much better.
