I just watched the opening ceremony (thank God for DVR’s). And a couple things struck me:
1) The precision with which the ceremony was executed. Amazing.
2) The pride displayed while singing their national anthem. Was it forced, or are they as a people, that proud of their country? And do you think that as American’s, we show that same pride?
3) I thought the lighting of the caldron was just ok. My favorite lighting of all time was the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona
