    Anybody watching the games yet?

    The opening ceremony was quite spectacular, but getting to be much of the same with everybody who has Olympic/Winter/Commonwealth games are trying to out do each other with as many fireworks as possible!!

    Two Gold medals in the swimming already, I heard on the radio this morn!

    Cmon the Scots!!!

    One of the events I will certainly be looking out for is the Mixed Doubles Badminton. Anyone see this at the Olympics a year or so ago... wow... awesome stuff from the British pairing. Must look for that again...

    Yay for NZ I say. Any medal that the Australians don't get is a fantastic medal! And yes, a fantastic start from Scotland. I think there were a few surprised and hurt Australian swimmers! :D

    Woo England through to Rugby sevens final. Any one know what time the final is? Live coverage through BBC website.

    Bit of a dilema for the aussies, who do they support when NZ play England? Great that there's a sell out 55,000.

    Well if they're like us, they support their own side and whoever is playing against NZ :p (if it was Australia vs England, we'd be supporting England!)
