Default Olympics - Opening Ceremony

Gotta hand it to the Chinese - that was pretty cool. Lasted a bit too long, but cool nonetheless.

If only William Hung had sung "She Bangs" at the end and then lit a fart with the Olympic torch it could have been perfect.

It helped that I was enjoying the Pastors RIS during the ceremonies.

I was a little upset, my unemployed ass was up at 7 something this morning to watch it at 8:08...then I realized once my hangover was over that there was no way in hell we'd see it that early in the morning, you all were all going or getting, or where at work....

and I watched football instead tonight

It was incredible. I wasn't planning to watch it all but the drumming at the start blew me away and I ended up watching it all.

Did anyone else notice that when the last torch holder was finally hoisted into the air, it looked like the harness shifted on him? When I saw that I was fairly certain that something bad was going to happen.

It was a good opening ceremony. Did any one else notice how bored the President and Mrs looked? At one point the camera caught him looking at his watch. Nothing political against the Pres, I just thought it looked kind of bad that our country's leader looked so impatient to leave.
