"The 19th Commonwealth Games have been opened in a spectacular opening ceremony which might repair some of the damage to India's image after a calamitous buildup to the sporting festival."
The Lemming doesn't know that the buildup was "calamitous." Journalists, in the English-speaking world anyway, were predictably eager to pounce of the SNAFUs. Like that incredible collapsing bridge and doo-doo in the dorms.
So, the Commonwealth Games in India are being hosted perfectly? No, of course not.
Still, India managed to get the balloon to go up for the games - literally.
