…Put On A Show
If you haven’t been following the wild speculation surrounding the opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympic Games, you’re in for quite a treat tomorrow.
With less than 24 hours to go until the games officially open, there have been leaks, wild guesses and “educated” speculation.
With a budget of $42 million and director Danny Boyle (the guy who did “Slumdog Millionaire”) at the helm, it’s hard not to be excited. And even harder not to speculate when there’s rumors of an army of Mary Poppins, Lord Voldemort (40 feet tall), a few dementors, an English meadow, cricket (presumably, being played in the English meadow), Peter Pan, Alice (of Wonderland) and James Bond parachuting into the Olympic Stadium. Of course, this will all be neatly tied up with a performance by Paul McCartney. You would be surprised by how little of that is made up.
In order to surpass expectations, the Queen herself would have to base jump into the stadium, while reciting Shakespeare and shooting a flaming arrow into the olympic cauldron (you heard it here first).
Of course, either way it’s sure to be a good show. Even if Voldemort is only 30 feet tall.
