Our three member strong Indian Contingent at Delaney's (The other Desis in there who did not have pride to cheer were either non-Indians or maybe non-Indians I'm guessing) cheered as the 56 member Indian Contingent marched forward. We also cheered for some of the countries including Bangladesh, Srilanka, Nepal and of course my new home country - Hong Kong/China along with some countries I'd not even heard off and some super-small contingents of 4-5 participants which will probably end up beating India in the medals tally.
Other Side Notes: Joe Banana's in Wan Chai the worst place to go to. How can they not have the Olympics Opening Ceremony showing. The worst part was they were trying to mislead the guests by showing some events from probably a similar event in the past which led us to believe we were at the right place - so what even if it was such a small screen TV. But then, at 8:08:08 on 8/8, we realized that this was just a trick, quickly wrapped up our drinks and sprinted across the Delaney's across the street. Never again - Joe B.
