Thread Name: Morris at the Olympics!
Subject: RE: Morris at the Olympics!
Exactly! Skating nuns, Indian drummers, a human cannonball...and morris dancers! But then, this was a highly organised pop concert. How else did you expect them to be presented?
Frankly, I thought that the closing show wasn't a patch on the opening one, which left me speechless at times. (Though the film of John Lennon singing "Imagine" was very moving.) Like many others I approached the games with loads of trepidation, and, again like many others, I was won over by it all. Mind you, proudly seeing my daughter carrying the Olympic Flame through the streets of Cambridge did make a vast difference.
