Of course, we can't see anything live. In the pacific time zone they're tape delaying everything. Even though the OLYMPICS are TAKING PLACE in the PACIFIC TIME ZONE!

I ****ing hate NBC.

I don't like KD Lang's grating stand on certain issues, but I sure had to respect her rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. She really crushed that song. Well done.

Sadly, I was too tired to even make it through the "B's" during the Parade of Nations. Can't wait to see the skeleton and the bobsledding, though!

They didn't parade in alphabetical order. it started off:-

Belgium
Ukraine
Luxembourg
Laos
Spain
Honduras
Italy
Thailand

The remaining nations then all mixed themselves around the stadium so they could start off a game of scrabble.

I agree. That was awesome.

Some of the opening ceremonies just seemed to go on too long. Maybe I'm just getting old and crabby but it seemed like some of the segments were endless. The effects were amazing, though, and it's always good to see all of the athletes parade in. I'm glad I stayed up late (for me!) to watch it all.

I have to admit though that the Pitt/UWV game was in three overtimes, so I kept switching back and forth for a while.

At the end end of the ceremony they had these 3 giant torches in a big sculpture. They looked like giant joints. I bet the snowboarders got excited seeing that!

There were supposed to be four of them. They had a hydraulic problem.

Did you notice the four erect penises under the giant vagina at the beginning? First we run a lit joint across the country and finish it off with an incredibly suggestive phallic ceremony at the end. Welcome to Canada.
