    What? She is not good looking in the slightest.
    She's no model but she's better looking than anyone will ever give her credit for.

    Interesting to see other peoples comments.

    I went with a group of friends - was a very good experience. The start was a bit cheesy, but it is Scotland - the international audience expect kilts etc, we are Scots and it is part of our culture like it or not. We do wear kilts on special occasions and to footy and rugby matches etc so it is a strong part of our identity, same for pipes, drinking irn bru, whisky etc. The in-jokes were amusing - the traffic cone on Wellington is just so iconic. After that got less cheesy and was all in all very enjoyable, though clapping got tiring.

    It is the Scottish Commonwealth Games as unlike in the olympics Scotland/England/NI/Wales are all seperate so it is about our identity, which is Scottish 1st British 2nd for most, even if you don't want independence. Was tempting to boo England

    It was awesome in the stadium to watch pinpricks of light appear all around the stadium as people held up their phones having texted UNICEF - if you were there it did feel amazing for that moment.
