Default 08 Summer Olympics~

The opening ceremony is amazing thus far. I envy those torch carriers, athletes, and all who are attending. I cannot wait for the events to begin!

I'll add pictures tomorrow. Who else is hyped for the Olympics?!


EDIT!!


OMG! Torch lighting was amazing!

Oh my goodness, I don't know if there is one word to describe it all. It was amazing, breathtaking, and at times, very heartwarming (the nine year old earthquake survivor/hero prancing next to the 7'2" Chinese flag bearer, awww!) - all on our crappy TV. I can't imagine the experience sitting in the stadium in person!

I loved all of the performances and the technology involved in the "nest" is simply astounding.

Definitely an awesome way to start the Summer Olympics. All of the performances were executed with such great precision, it was almost scary. I mean, honestly, 2000+ performers all synchronized and forming rows upon rows of perfect circles? It was really unbelievable.

My only gripe was the lighting of the torch. Running across the "membrane" was kind of too over the top for me. I was expecting something more a long the lines of a dragon and fire, but I guess that would have been too predictable

I got freaked when the torch bearer was running the "membrane" because the wires would jerk his body suddenly making me think he was going to slip. :x

I was in complete awe at the beginning of the opening ceremony with the light up drums when they were counting down. ._.

It was completely phenominal!

I've officially decided that I'm going to go to the next Olympic's opening ceremony.
