Olympic Fever

I thought it would be fun to watch the opening ceremonies for the Olympics last night. Which were all in all pretty great. I got quite teary-eyed while listening to the speech from the Olympic President, or was it the President of Italy? Anyhow, the speech went on to ask for peace. And for [all athletes to play fair and get along no matter their religion, nationality or the country they came from]. It was great. If only it was so simple to get what we ask for, then perhaps the whole world could live together in peace.

I have to comment on the music, as was brought up by Whoorl, what was with the music while all the athletes were filing in? They were playing some really old funky disco-ish music. I laughed a few times and wondered why on earth they chose those particular songs to sing.

I loved the women carrying in the Olympic flag. Sophia Loren looked gorgeous as always and Susan Sarandon looked amazing and was smiling so beautifully. I felt I was having a proud moment for them, being the first women to carry in the flag.

And today we won our first Gold Medal!! YAY!! Jennifer Heil won gold in the women's moguls. Great Job Jennifer!! And the Women's Hockey team won their first game 16-0 against Italy. (I do feel sorry for the Italian Ladies, but it is their first year and they got to play because they are the host team. They played a good game and looked like they were having fun).

Will continue to watch the games and hope that the Men's Hockey team can ignore the silliness out there surrounding the Gretzky's and play hard to win. Go Team Canada Go!!
