World Cup Opening Ceremony was a Joke

I haven't had much sleep the last couple of days, and probably won't for the next 4 weeks as the world cup plays out.
I am not watching all the games, like one of my friends is who took 4 weeks of work to watch and bought a hard drive recorder as well!
I woke the two eldest Miranda and Jadeen up to watch the opening ceremony which was on at 12 am the other night.
I watched in amazement as the most bizarre ceremony I have ever seen unfolded.
Can't understand what hip hop and head spinning dancers had to do with either Germany or soccer. Could understand the Lederhosen clad drummers, but the rest was just "strange". What was with the women with the funny head gear and huge dresses that they hoisted up on wires?
At least the soccer has been great!
