    I'm watching swimming the most. GO MICHAEL PHELPS! I used to be a professional swimmer when I was younger...this totally brings back memories for me. I'm rooting for Hungary (since I was born there) for Canada (since I lived there for 20 years) and for the USA, since I live here now GO TEAMS!
    Great Googly Moogly!

    I won't and will not watch. It's just not interesting to me.

    However, I did see The People's Republic of Capitalism on the Discovery Channel weeks earlier. Very insightful documentary on China that mentioned the Olympics.

    I'll take that giant tv screen they had on the floor!
    It was cool that they had Sarah Brightman, what a nice surprise.

    I was glad Korea won woman's archery and men's 400 meter swim. Lost soccer though.

    We absolutely demolished China in basketball. Go Redeem Team! Phelps won his first gold (no pressure on him!), Hoff got bronze (400 IM), tied in mens soccer, won in womens, and we won a couple other things! woohoo!

    I chuckled at the group in red polos and white cargo shorts. The Dutch maybe? They looked like a big crowd of tourists. What was with all the people taking pictures of themselves in front of the TV cameras? I mean, really, isn't there a more opportune time?

    I thought the opening ceremony was nice, but I didn't like the fact that a good portion of the fireworks were computer generated, and the little girl singing was only lip-syncing, as the girl actually singing wasn't "cute" enough. I think the goverment was a little too obsessed with perfection.
