I didn't catch the very beginning, but I saw the rest. Indeed a good show.

I was pretty amazed at the guy who went up to the top of the stadium and around it. I would have been terrified.

Good show....Though the flame lighting with the bow and arrow in Barcelona will be hard to top.

Region-wide water rationing to the people for some stupid ceremony to an even stupider event. Call me a downer, but those people live like shit the way it is. I think a country should take care of its people BEFORE they're even allowed to hold the games. Me and my damned priorities...

China was fucked prior to the Olympics and will be after the Olympics which is the main problem.

Eventually China is going to be pushed into the corner and start taking shit from the rest of the world.

Denny, you can bitch about China all you want but there are plenty of kids that go starving every day in the US (in fact millions) and we just go on about our lives. I think before we go around and take over another country and help them we should take care of our own children.

Between this and your prediction of another run on oil, yes, your new name is Denny Downer.

Y'all related?

It's sure as hell a better perspective than most Americans have. Shit, most don't understand just how fucked this world is. Ya, we have our hungry kids too, but it's not because of a dictatorship taking food out of their hands, is it? We're not all fortunate enough to be smart hedge funders who can make the best out of any situation, so excuse some of us for getting pissed when we see those less fortunate than us suffer. I can just see where most of this is headed and it absolutely sucks knowing nothing can be done about it.

So its better to starve at the hands of capitalism than the hands of a dictator?

To me a starving child is a starving child. Go take a walk through parts of West Virginia and you'll see kids that are just as fucked as the children of Iraq under Saddam.

This is the sports forum, this thread is about a pretty spectacular opening ceremony for the Olympics. Try to keep the political bullshit in the other forum. The Olympics are "my event" moreso than NFL, MLB or the NHL. Don't shit on my parade.

Cooter, yes, I understand this... doesn't make it any more right.

Uhhh... ya. Y'all aren't getting it. The government is making their people's conditions worse JUST to hold these games that could have been held elsewhere. That's all. Nothing more, nothing less.

Yea, yea, our government makes it hard for millions of children every day just by the way the country is run every day.

Give it the fuck up already, Mr. Downer. The political forum is dedicated for your depressive state.

Oh yea, HD with DVR pause FTW! Along with Track & Field and Swimming (men and women).

Should be a great men's 100 meters final this year with Bolt (Jamaica) and Gay (America).

Hell, I'm watching women's handball at the moment. About the only thing I won't watch is rhythmic gymnastics. Dish Network has it pretty cool at the moment with their interactive display so you can keep up with medal counts and highlights of the day.

But there's a bigger chance of meeting her as a single chick out with her girlfriends then if she were drunk at a bar with her husband.
