Yep. Last night went a long way towards cancelling out the toe-curling awfulness of the handover show, the god-awful logo and mascots, the crass ticketing system, the vile Coca Cola roadshow and the general mean spiritedness of LOCOGs branding police. Quite looking forward to the actual games now

Agreed. The show was well thought out, clever and spectacular without being flash or gawdy.

Not sure what Her Madge thought of the Arctic Monkeys? I thought that they smashed it, Coldplay or Adele would've been way too safe.

We had day one of the torch relay and you're right, the Coke thing was too much.
