The music they used for the Parade of Nations was dismal. It's like they played 52-Pickup with a collection of ethnic music from around the world, edited it together, and put it on an endless loop. There was no imagination, the renditions were blah, and as much as I love bagpipe music, I got really tired of it after the fifth time it played. There was no attempt at all to match the music to the countries.
I would classify diving and rowing as sports. But it still flabbergasts me that people consider target shooting and table tennis legitimate Olympic sports. Why not add Tiddly-winks?
