    Cliches and truths (used and unused) by commentators (plagiarised from Guardian blogger):

    "This still mysterious country showing itself to the world".
    "Quite literally, a cast of thousands".
    "Founded by Pierre de Coubertin in 1896"
    "Much for London to live up to come 2012"
    "Gordon Brown will be here for the closing ceremony"
    "Security is very tight, yet friendly"
    "The Friendly Games"
    "The most important people here, the athletes"

    And here's what we won't be getting on commentator bingo.

    "My expense account is already up to ..."
    "The Games' carbon footprint is estimated at..."
    "These, of course, are the lucky athletes who have made it to the Chinese team. The unlucky ones are..."
    "As many as xx% are estimated to have used perforamnce enhancing drugs at some point in their careers".
    "... with a quiet humility..."
    "Unlike in London, the torch arrives without a phalanx of blue tracksuited goons".
    "It was Hitler in 1936 who initiated the torch relay".
    "And a big cheer greets the Iraqis"
