I'm betting Canada will come back with 5 gold medals. Ha.That's how much faith I have in our team.

Oh I have more faith than 5 medals. We are not a summer sport kind of nation though. Just being there is an awesome experience for the athletes.

  [FONT size=5]GO CANADA [/FONT]for sure!!

Yeah, not to be a party pooper, but the world only knows Canada in the Summer Olympics for a sprinter on steroids. Oh well look at our dudes, we make East Germany's team look tame. hahaha

I'm watching the basketball games, root for the US to lose.

Here in Amerika that isn't shown until prime time.
They were teasing it on tv earlier, saying it was the best they've ever seen. I have a sinking feeling Vancouver's is going to blow giant chunks, unfortunately.

 You are probably right. I missed today's opening ceremonies, but I hear they were pretty amazing.

The world doesn't treat the Winter Olympics the same.  They are doing them at *YAAAAWN*...BC Place too.

  Oh well. As long as there is a pothead snowboarder REPRASENTAN BC and Canada!! Oh yeah!!

I'm not one for flashy hooplah.....but I have to say, the opening ceremonies were the most spectacular thing EVER !!!!!!!   Unbelievable !  Engineering and technological genius.....  Heart, history, precision showmanship........I can't find enough words.....most impressive.

The drummers (and their precision) made my jaw drop.  I also loved the 'movable boxes'.  Absolutely spectacular.
