Looking forward to it. I'm especially looking forward to the lighting of the Olympic Cauldron. Remember the Barcelona games, and the archer? Cathy Freeman in Sydney standing on the water? Ali, lighting the cauldron in Atlanta

So, after seeing the lighting of Olympic Cauldron tonight, what did you think.

For some reason, it wasn't one of the better ones for me. As the torch bearer reached the top of the stairs to light Olympic Cauldron, it really looked like he was lighting a giant cigar.

Having the Olympic Cauldron then swing back to the upright position was nice, but for me the impressive mechanics didn't really help give it the same feel as other lightings.
