What did you expect? David Beckham riding around again ala James Bond and the Queen dropping out of a helicopter? C'mon now.
I didn't mind seeing David Beckham I thought the whole helicopter was rather amusing.. overall, I liked the opening ceremony.. all except for the whole technology/social networking part of it. That was cheesy as hell.
Other than that, it's this closing ceremony I find awfully boring. I'm waiting for the Spice Girls to perform for the most part lol
You forgot to mention much more bootylicious as well.
