OLYMPIC WOW


Like an old pastor of ours used to say, "If you missed it, you missed it."

If you missed the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics, you really missed something historic and aw-inspiring. Not just the fact that the Olympics are taking place in China, but the scale of the ceremony was cinematic.


Pull out the adjective dictionary and start describing it. But then words wouldn't do it justice. And if you were't lucky enough to attend in person, watching it on HDTV was as close as being there as you can get.

China definitely earns the gold medal for presentation, performance, accuracy, and originality.

With that said, I just want to say ... GO USA!

USA!
USA!
USA!

It was indeed awesome, but perhaps a bit over the top. I'm glad I'm living in the same time zone as Beijing so I can watch races at "normal times". Also, the swimming coverage on TV in Taiwan has been great so far - live and with detailed commentary and medal ceremomies, etc. I watched the US win that 4 x 100 freestyle by a hand's length. It was awesome. Go USA (and a few other places, too)!
