'Faith of the Heart' certainly got a very public showing at the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony the other day, with Russell Watson belting out the Enterprise theme accompanied by a choir. Although I was pleased they were singing the extended version of the song, I must say, the hand-actions of the backing singers looked rather absurd.
I didn't really intend to watch that much of the CG, but I got sucked into the diving last night. Some of those divers are truly breathtaking, although every time they jumped, it looked like they were going to hit the board - one poor guy did clip his toes on it.
Australia's off to a good start - second on the medal board, just behind the Canadians, but I'm sure we'll eclipse them soon.:)
