Had a dodgy start with the sheep and top hats but that was absolutely fucking amazing. Dunno what it was like compared tot he Chinese one since I don't normally bother watching thousands of people walk round in a circle.
Also looking forward to the paltry track and field coverage (finals only), and instead getting multi-hour specatacles of equestrian, archery, ball-and-hoop gymnastics, and synchronized swimming. Because those are the events that symbolize the Olympic Ideal.
Bonus points if we're treated to highlights of Sir Roger Bannister or Seb Coe's great mile races, or the theme from Chariots of Fire at random intervals, or a Crookedest Teeth on a Hot Bird segment. Would hit (mouth closed)!
