John Barrowman mentioned hairy coos a few times in his intro song.

Is it just me that feels a wee bit older hearing that Liz McColgan's daughter is competing in these games?

Ah, its fine you miserable buggers! Although there is an over-reliance on the use of the video screen.


Well, quite, what do people expect on a Commonwealth Games budget? Shipyards rising out of the Parkheid pitch? James Bond? David Beckham? (seriously, if Beckham makes an appearance I shall do something I'll regret).

It's inevitable that Beckham will appear at some point, it's a sporting occasion with plenty of cameras around.

I noticed a Tongan waving a Celtic shirt about and seemingly getting agitated because he wasn't getting the reaction he expected. How to judge your audience.

Scotland's outfits look ok en masse.

I could be tempted myself.

 

I hope salmond  and his crew steer clear of what looks like being  very fraternal games

 

and now Rod feckin Stuart is going to ruin it all.

Rod Stewart's voice has actually deteriorated in the hour since he was last on stage.

The team parades were great, the rest lacked ambition, imagination and pretty much anything you could desire.

harmless, enjoyable, fun, but probably forgettable overall.

The dogs seem popular though.

It is a good cause, but it has been shoehorned in a bit.

His autotune has obviously failed.  Susan Boyle was given the wrong song and I think there was a timing issue that threw her completely.  They blew the chance of getting a bouncy bit with 500 Miles and The Proclaimers, instead they slowed it right down and killed it.

And the greatest song ever written

Freedom, Come All Ye

Sae come aa ye at hame wi freedom
Never heed whit the houdies croak for Doom
In yer hous aa the bairns o Aidam
Will fin breid, barley-bree an paintit room
Whan MacLean meets wi's friens in Springburn
Aa thae roses an geeans will turn tae blume
An a black laud frae yont Nyanga
Dings the fell gallows o the burghers doun.

Could have been written with a Commonwealth gathering in mind.
