The 2008 Beijing Olympic Opening Ceremonies did not disappoint this enthusiast.

How about you?


  1. Hi Steviewren...look at what I missed! No, I didn't watch...

  2. Loved your post! I didn't get to watch it...I was sick. :( How amazing the photos were...which means I REALLY did miss it. =/

  3. Wonderful pix!

    Hey, I made your waffles this morning and they were a huge hit at the Manor! Pop over and take a peek. :)

  4. As a former sportswriter, it was the best opening ceremony I've ever watched.

  5. Hi Stevie! I saw the drummers - that was fantastic, wasn't it? I didn't see the lit globe, but that looks pretty astounding too. I can't get over the smog though - everyone should have been issued a mask, I think.


  6. Stevie...we watched the whole thing and loved it!! It was fantasticI really liked that we saw the faces of the Chinese people...beautiful children..they suffer at the hands of their leaders. I read recently that there are millions of Christians in China...I hope all goes well with the Olympics..we are watching now :)

  7. I did not watch the whole thing. I liked the human typeset. The fireworks of the footsteps proceeding down the street were darn cool, weren't they?

  8. I didn't watch the opening ceremony but your account makes me wish I did! I'm catching as much of the events as I favorite is gymnastics so I'm looking forward to that!

    Hope you had a greta weekend!


I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
