I found these pics and if they are any indication of what the opening ceremonies were like, I wish I had watched them.

Olympic Ceremonies.

Love the Olympics! I'm quite the Olympic addict. It's the only sports thing I care at all about. Or get at all competitive about. Go Team USA! Big day today with Alpine skiing, Short Track, Speed Skating (hello, Stephen Colbert), and Snowboarding.

I think you may have a problem where womens hockey is concerned. So far, Canada has scored 41 goals in only 3 games. With scores like 18-0, 10-1, and 13-1, that's quite an impressive accomplishment so far.

Huge Winter Olympics addict here. Snowboard Cross rocks!! What a great addition to the games since introduced in Torino '06. Speed, finese, power, drama, anyone at any time can bite it. Sorry Lindsey, tough break.

Great day for the USA in Speed Skating! Congrats to Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick for their medal performances in the Men's 1000m, finishing Gold and Bronze respectively.

Hmmm I can't seem to find Nederland represented on the platform?? :)

Next up the 1500m.

That you do. I wont deny it, but we are pretty good, and the Koreans are certainly doing well there too.
