OMG are british people ugly, lol.

And only 1 athlete from hong kong? She must be ronery....I mean lonely.  Cheesy



Did anyone notice the Georgians? They were all rightfully sullen, but when one of the athletes went to wave the trainer shouted something at him and he immediately put his hand down.

Holy crap did the US get a warm reception. I was expecting a sea of boo's like last time. I think the US got the second most thunderous entry shy of Canada.

Apart from the neato screen gadgetry on the floor, I am not impressed by the opening ceremonies.

Over reliant on projectors. Ive seen the same stuff done in much smaller venues.


And......tap dancing?

Like I said on anther forum, the folks who organized the show should have gotten Toyota to build them the ice girders. You know those would have kept going. Cheesy

You can't really say this is the same as the China ceremony. That was a sight to behold.
