Don’t have a TV. Commonwealth Games ceremony sounds as if it was a real ripsnorter, a triumph of Scottishness:
Is there anyone actually in the stands?
# This is the opening ceremony that everyone was afraid that the Olympics would have.
# Come back Pitbull…all is forgiven!
# Rod’s wearing hair by Gloria Hunniford, skin by World Of Leather and blazer by Bacofoil.
# Why oh why are we being subjected to people telling us all about scotland when they dont live here e.g john barrowman – hasnt lived here for 20 years, billy connelly – has lived in america for 30 years, rod stewart….isnt scottish at all.
# As each team comes in, the announcer shouts “Come on in”, which is a Scottish saying, we’re told. “Come on in, Maldives.”
# At least the athletes have arrived to fill the space up a bit! Is it over yet?
Well, you know, the Beeb version is a bit different.…
