I'm already euphoric about these games. I have a physical therapy for my lower back for over a month now, and I'm making jokes with another patient (has a injured knee) that we are actually getting ready for the Olympic games. My therapy ends on Friday, so, the timing is perfect. :D

I have to say the opening ceremony wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.  I actually quite enjoyed it.

Most sad and  memorable moment:

Mohammad Ali holding onto the Olympic flag - respect to the man.

I enjoyed the ceremony, it was quite creative and spectacular.

The Muhammad Ali moment gave me goose bumps, the man is a legend and it's great that he made the effort to be on the stadium for the opening ceremony.

The ceremony was ok, I wasn't impressed. The music part of it was fantastic starting with Muse - Map of the Problematique and ending it with Hey Jude - that was mind-blowing. 
I think that everything was a bit too slow and too sad for such an event. 
Regarding Muhammad Ali, I have mixed feelings. He's an absolutely fantastic sportsman, but he is very sick and he didn't need this, so he deserves a huge respect for showing up.

Oh yes, I completely forgot, I really liked the scene with the Queen and Daniel Craig, that was really good and funny.  :)

It was amazing! I like London show more than it was in Beijing. But tastes differ.

OMG that was great! LOL Probably the best part. Someone said the US uniforms made them look like flight attendants. LOL

As I said before, I really quite enjoyed it...some bits more than other bits but overall, I wasn't disappointed.  It really was Britain through the years. 

So my favourite (and perhaps some sad bits thrown in too) were:

The coming together of the 5 rings
Mr Bean and the Chariots of Fire music and his film
The James Bond bit
The Olympic flag bit - Mohammad Ali (bless his heart)
The music (heavenly singing and drums) when the 7 nominated "future" olympians ran round the stadium with the torch,
The lighting of the olympic flame  - a touch of genius in my opinion.
