08 Olympics

Just seen through satellite the parts of the opening ceremony in Beijing.
Great show, lots of fireworks, will leave everything else to your imagination for tonight's airing in US stations.

Air quality and human rights might be an issue but the games will go on.....


Here is where you can talk about these long anticipated Beijing Olympics as the game progresses.............................

Opening ceremony was simply amazing. Very enjoyable.
The coordination for all of that was absolutely amazing. London will have to kick some ass in 2012....

Re: 08 Olympics

I don't think anyone can top an opening ceremony like that...

I do have a question... how can they make a perfect circle without marking, running towards eachother in CIRCLE but they can't drive for shit!

Re: 08 Olympics

hey you guys... I'm watching the opening ceremony replay NBC (yeah i missed the first airing)...

And I'm watching it in HD and it's... yeah i can't describe it

it's probably the most visually breathtaking thing I have seen

World's largest LED screen? Are you frigging kidding me? Seriously... whoever thought of that had to be brilliantly insane.
