Watching the opening ceremony and it was touching to see the Malaysian team wearing black armbands and waving their flag at half mast as a mark of respect to the MH17 victims.

Does any Australian know if we are getting any coverage?

I only watch channels 7 and 10 and haven't seen any promotion for the games so assume it is channel 9 that is covering them - but colleagues at work say they watch 9 and have seen no promotion there. One said that she doesn't think there is going to be any live coverage on TV at all.

Can any Aussie help?

We were discussing this issue over lunch today as no one had even realised that they had started this morning as no kids talking about them, no promotion etc on the TV, limited coverage of things on the news - other than the flag bearer and Sally Pearson and the 100 metres no one could say they had heard anything about the team or the event. We knew it was about now - as one of our students just missed selection (as he is only 17 and has made the Junior Worlds we weren't surprised he missed selection) and he is in Year 12 and had indicated that he may have trouble completing his HSC Trial Examinations which start on Monday if selected for either the Commonwealth Games or the Worlds.

Iluvbertie: Channel 10 and Channel One are covering the Games. Channel 10 has coverage starting at either 8.30 or 9.30 tonight and going all night, according to the Australian TV Guide search I just did. Channel One has it at other times.

So do I!! The Queen Mum's Bridal Bouquet was made up of Heather and White Roses (for The Rose of York and also one of my two very favourite flowers). Sadly to my knowledge there are no pictures of it or at least that I've ever seen. It must have been stunningly gorgeous.


We nearly hit the floor of our Living Room laughing over that. . Beyond priceless!!

Speaking of beyond priceless...Whoever it was that came up w/the idea of using the Scotty Terriers to "carry" the signs that identified each Nation and lead them into the Stadium was BRILLIANT!!! Those furry four legged sweeties just literally stole the show. I've been trying to find pictures of Canada's lil guy all evening and have come up w/nothing. I had a very sleepless night due to trying out some new earring wire wrapping patterns, really liking the one and then thanks to inspiration hitting me...The next thing I knew, it was almost 6am EST. After taking my AM Meds, I re set my alarm for 3 pm, but it didn't go off and by the time I woke up and got the coverage on the CBC on, the Parade of Nations was in the O's.

So if anyone could find a picture of Team Canada being led in w/their Terrier for us please and thank you, I'd really appreciate it. Both because I and my Parents would love to see it, but also because I read at one point his handler picked him up and was waving his paw at the crowd. That would be such a big time Awwww thing to see, but if it's out there, I haven't seen it.

And I mean I've looked. Nothing at Pinterest, nothing at Twitter and nothing over at the CBC...Unless I'm using the wrong search terms, but 2014 Commonwealth Games Glasgow Scottish Terriers Opening Ceremony should have brought *something* up you would think!! Thanks again in advance!!

Thanks for that - strange that they haven't promoted it during Masterchef, which I do watch every night.

What an incredible achievement for him at such an early age? What event does he participate in?
