    Thanks for the heads up. I totally forgot this was on until your thread reminded me. Love the BBC opening credits. :)

    Indian national anthem sounds like it has been played on a gramophone.

    :lol: I've been to India on two occasions and both times you couldn't move in the markets for old gramophones from the days of the Raj. I bought two. :shuffle:

    All this endless talk over the state of the facilities. Honestly Huw Edwards seemed kind of surprised they actually had electricity. :rolleyes:

    English made an effort with their outfits.

    Oh well, the athletes so far all looked happy enough to be there (even if the audience looks terribly bored).

    Huge welcome for Pakistan! I guess the Indians only boo Canadians. Maybe they don't like standing ovations? ;)

    I wondered if it was more they didn't like the lack of standing ovations they gave the organizing committee a week or so ago :D

    I thought they got quite a loud welcome? I didn't hear any booing or maybe I am just losing it? :confused:
