I wasn't able to watch the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games live. I did however view the, "highlights," later. Was I the only person who cringed at the efforts to promote, "Scottishness?" Tunnock Teacakes cavorting across the stage! Nessie! Scottie Dogs! A melee of self conscious individuals attired in kilts, (several of them looking anything but fit), passing a baton/torch thingy amongst themselves as they jogged! Giant slabs of shortcake! Gretna Green! It wasn't slick it was very embarrassing. Hopefully the sport will help people forget what prefaced the competition.
