No -- I was in Sheffield -- maybe I saw the replay the next day when they were digging themselves out of the rubble

Lucky you :-) Or may be not if you were living in the South of England then! Michael Fish, what a legend!

I thought it was brilliant! Typically British, full of substance but in a light-hearted, jokey, and at times silly, kind of way :-) I loved the reference to Michael Fish's Hurricane Gaffe lol Now, how many people outside Britain got that? None probably, but the show was full of wee funny things like that... I loved every minute of it!

"Do geek's have their own olympics?" Of course -- but they are "invitation only" ... you are obviously not geeky enough :-)

Thanks for sorting this out -- I must admit that I have been wondering about this

Do you mean to say that Kenneth Branagh playing the role of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, as part of the opening ceremony of a sporting event, wasn't enough for at least a little bit of geek satisfaction?

It has been looked up. they represented doves, which had previously and traditionally released in opening ceremony. And the doves symbolised peace and harmony, I guess.

Max you meant this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJX8coNc2J8 :) And re the history of GB at the opening, I totally agree, it was really something.
