The Olympics are finally here!!! I really enjoy the Olympics and I’m really excited that it’s in London because that was the most I’ve enjoyed an opening ceremony since… ever. Musical montage – awesome (like really, seriously awesome). Special effects – great. British accent – excellent, as always. Story line – good (I loved all the classic bad guys from British literature). Voldemort vs. Mary Poppins – seriously awesome. Commentary – not so much awesome there (it was just too much).
The only thing that upsets me about the Olympics being in London is the time difference. Everything I want to watch is on at like 2am. Not cool. Good thing I have a DVR, now if only I could stay off the internet…
Update @ 10:00 pm EST: Even though the parade of nations is fairly boring, I’m digging the music, and I love seeing what all the different countries are wearing (though I’m sure, as always, the US will disappoint in their choice of outfit).
Update @ 11:00 pm EST: Called it! Another disappointing outfit. And it’s by Ralph Lauren! With Ralph Lauren designing you’d think they would look good.
Update @ 11:45 pm EST: Coolest. Olympic. Cauldron. Ever.
