2008 opening ceremony

Wow!! I have watched many an Olympic opening ceremony since my birth in 1981 and the one last night was amazing!! Usually the highlight is seeing all the countries walk in with their outfits and I always try to figure out where the country is located. The artistic portion is, as I can remember, pretty dry.

Not last night. I was sitting on the edge of my seat, the husband even watched and we kept saying things like, “how is that possible” or “no way!” It was that kinda show.

I wasn’t going to watch the Olympics this year. I debated back and forth for quite some time actually. But then those Morgan Freeman Visa commercials started playing and I remembered what the Olympics represent and how much I do love the athletics of it all. I couldn’t not watch.
