I liked parts of the Opening Ceremony. I don't think it's as awesome as most are making it out to be. The things that I did like specifically were the Smoke Stacks that rose from the ground, the forging of the Rings (Reeeeeeeeally cool), the small individual cauldrons that merged into one giant cauldron and the arrival of the Torch by way of speedboat. Paul McCartney was particularly good. The things I didn't like where the Mary Poppins, Kids jumping on the beds (Peter Pan) and the floats. I'd give it an overall 3 1/2 Stars out of 5.

I forgot to mention that I thought the Queen Elizabeth / James Bond gag was funny.

It was a mixed bag. Loved the molten rings in the sky. Loved how they got some camera angles, the 200+ torches. The stacks were cool. The whole musical through the ages with Tim? Meh.

The very opening video was way cool. Wonder how the did that.

F uck the queen. Britain is in financial turmoil. Hmmmm, maybe these extravagant party's for the queen are not helping.

Did get to watch mens beach, men's court. One of the few sports I actually try to watch.

We kicked ass and took names

Phelps looks like he is swimming with a 2-Ton anchor around his neck. He advances to the Semi's coming in 3rd, but he didn't look good getting there.

Misty May & Kerri Walsh




Wheeee! Misty May and Kerri Walsh advance to the next round. But this too wasn't easy. They were tested in the second set and I though their streak was over. But they are professionals and showed the world why they are the best by pulling off a 6-1 run to close it out and move on. Awesome!! I couldn't find a video on YouTube of the match to post. My guess is that as soon as it's up, it gets pulled down. So, you will have to settle for the above image in its place.

Awesome night for Team USA!!!

Phelps wins Gold in the Relay event giving him the most Gold Medals as well as the most Medals ever for any Olympic athlete. Awesome! Not to be outdone, the Women's Gymnastic Team destroyed everyone else. They made the Russian Team weep because they knew they couldn't compete with us!! They imploded. Wheeeeee!!!!

S h i t !  I can't believe that Misty May and Kerri Walsh's undefeated streak is over. I knew I shouldn't have posted that image of them in this thread. I jinxed them. I take full responsibility. Now we gotta focus on winning the match.

Well, my girls came roaring back to win the match which is all that matters. But I have a bone to pick with NBC. I wait all day for certain events, especially May/Walsh and what does NBC do? They only show the last of the first set, go to commercial break which is what 4 minutes top and go right into Set 3, skipping Set 2 all together. I hate this truncated  b u l l s h i t  mentality of whoever is running NBC.
