    Incredible opening ceremonies!!! Of course we are rooting for the U.S Ski Team. Jackson's own Resi (pronounced Rac-ee for the next two weeks) Steigler will be competing in the Slalom and Downhill. Her pop is Olympic Gold Medalist Pepi Steigler, so she is in good hands. Oh yeah, then there is BODIE MILLER!!!!!!!!

    Let us get a big up for your favorite team and country. They are going to need it. Talk about pressure.

    PEACE

    I caught a bit of the opening ceremonies, the best part was the Ferrari :)

    Canada is up like a million nothing in women's hockey against Italy already! We are gonna clean up this year...I hope.

    Our local hero is Chad Hedrick, speed skater. Hopefully it will be a great Olympics for him!

    I loved all the '80s pop music playing while the countries walked in. :lol:

    And I always love the torch lighting although nothing is going to top Barcelona for me. Well... ok. Sydney and Barcelona. Both were awesome!

    That's the spirit folks!!! I was wondering what they were thinking when they decided to choreograph the ceremonies to 8o's pop.

    I am fully laughing out loud. I am surprised it was not "Now That's What I Call Music 15".

    That was a nice opening ceremony. I liked all the pyrotechnics when the torch was lit.

    Barcelona... was that the one where the guy shot the flaming arrow into the cauldron? That one was awesome.

    Didnt he shoot over the cauldron in Barcelona? The flame was lit anyways, but i think i remember something like that, im not too sure though.
    Im wont be folowing the Olypics, never do. Im just not interested in it. But i do hope the Netherlands will bring in some medals. There is a silver one in skating, so its a start :)
