My Opening Ceremony

Picture 1

Although I got the chance to see many events of the Olympics Games overseas, I didn't managed to watch the Opening Ceremony until this past weekend. And my, oh my, the $300 million dollar production exceeds any blockbuster film and the visuals were stimulating and emotional. My favorite part? Watching Li Ning run around the outer ring of the Bird's Nest to light the final torch to start off the games. I swear, I had tears in my eyes watching him do the acrobatics. Also, while most people are bored with the parade of nations, I usually watch the entire thing (all 3 hours of it) only to catch names of countries I've never heard of and to hear Bob Costas' tidbit trivia about random countries.
