  • A great start!

    Can you belive that the Olympics started on 8-8-08 at 8:08pm est. And that they are twelve hours ahead of us in Beijing. Really a touching and moving tribute. Wished that it wasn't in China. All due to human rights issues. Glad though they pulled off one of the biggest and best opening ceremonies ever. London, which will have the games in 2012, will have to come up with something like that. Plus, they didn't go by ABC of countries but by some kind of system. It was neat to see the person running across the stadium, to lit the torch. Felt that he was going to fall. But they manage to pull it off!
