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 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.
Here's a link to video of the opening ceremony for those who missed it.

Sorry Swords your so full of it when you claim to blame the Republicans on this. Just because your world saviour Al "I'm to good to do it" Gore says so doesn't mean its true. It doesn't mean that all republicans want zero emissions regulations. IMO many of the Dems want to continue buying oil from people who do not like us so much and leave us still indebted to others who don't like us. Frankly I don't care for either political party. They are both tired and old as hell. Even the rock star still plays the old tired cards the old guys do. He is just like the rest of them and frankly can't stand him either. When you turn your nose up at the troops and refuse to shake the hand of the people that give you the freedoms you have every day.
Anywho back to the topic. I didn't watch the opening ceremonies because I was busy entertaining at a party We were having, but I did see pictures and they were stunning. It has been a great show so far. The building are amazing and they went all out. I agree at how the soldiers march like the Nazi's did. Stuff happens. You do realize they are still a communist country. So go figure. They may be trying to change. The Olympics is a chance for them to show the world they are trying to play on the world stage.
