Olympics 2012 Opening Ceremony

This past Friday kicked off the 2012 Summer Olympics. The Olympics is the event of all events and this year's kickoff in London did not disappoint!

With an elaborate town scene set to depict the early beginning of Great Britain, townspeople rolled up the grassy fields as nearly 1,000 drummers entered the stadium, representing the arrival of the Industrial Revolution, while towers and smoke stacks rose from the ground. We were taken through the adventures of James Bond watching as Daniel Craig and the good Queen "herself" parachuted down for their grand entrance, through the ages of pop in the 60's, 70's, and 80's, ending as the torch was lit from horns representative of all the participating countries.

I'm not sure if anyone, even Disney, has produced as amazing a fireworks show as the one that set London on fire to conclude the Opening Ceremony!

What was your favorite part of the Opening Ceremony? (Yes, we realize David Beckham's speedboat run is probably pretty high up there!)
