I thought it was technically brilliant, well performed and went off without any apparent hitch. Overall I thought the content was tacky and cheesy. Why should we have to try and blow our own trumpet in this way. It should be about sport and this minor distraction or sideshow was not for me; and I did watch it all. It also went out too late and lasted much too long. I shall be scouring the foreign press to see how it went down elsewhere. I wonder whether the hosts of the next Olympics 9brazil) feel they must try and 'better' this. Perhaps we will be regaled with one massive, long carnival.
