2012 London Olympics, Opening Ceremony: Open Thread

The opening ceremony for the 2012 London Olympic Games begins at 4pm today and runs through until 7pm ET.

Whether you’re watching it live, or watching it on tape-delay beginning at 7:30pm ET on NBC in the United States, feel free to post your remarks, questions and observations about the opening ceremony, the footballers representing their country, or David Beckham’s remarkable way that he’ll be helping with the lighting of the Olympic flame.

Today is a historic day for Brits and ex-pats. It’s the first time in my lifetime that the Olympic Games has been held in Great Britain. And the excitement and anticipation for today’s opening ceremony is unbelievable.

In a city where so many of our Premier League teams play, the capital of England will be captivated with the Olympic Games for the next several weeks.

SPOILER ALERT: If you don’t want to know what surprises are in store for tonight’s Olympic Games opening ceremony, you may want to come back later to add your commentary.
