    So, anyone else watching?

    Have to say, I have absolutely loved these Olympics, they have been amazing. Team GB have more than delivered and then some.

    Right from the start, the opening ceremony, to each and every single medal we won, getting 3rd in the table overall, just absolutely brilliant.

    Can't believe it is all about to end - far too quickly for my liking.

    Will be watching and enjoying every last second of the closing ceremony.

    London 2012 - it's been a blast. :thumbsup:

    Agreed 100%

    This sort of thing isn't normally my thing. I can't believe how much I'm looking forward to the closing ceremony.

    rovex - I don't understand your point at all. Sorry.

    Edit: On reflection, I do actually. Perhaps the main closing ceremony could be after the paralympics.

    But, there's no harm in having a damn good celebration now.

    No that Prince Harry was introduced as Prince Henry. His name even came up on the screen as that.

    It wasn't a gaffe. His name actually is Henry, Harry is a nickname. IIRC his full title is Prince Henry Charles Albert David Windsor of Wales.

    So far this hasn't been that great. I don't like any of this music.

    In their defence they have cracked America and
    Other markets so are probably more known globally at this current time than the others

    Sorry but this is truly awful. The opening ceremony was fantastic but this is poor. If the Spice Girls are the highlight, then whoever is responsible for it, should give their fee back.

    Tedious so far.
    If the opening ceremony was a 10.
    The closing ceremony is a number 2.

    I think the paralympics should run at the same time, maybe have 3 weeks of Olympics for everyone.

    That opening segment was certainly nothing to write home about.
