I thought the opening ceremonies were really amazing. Really colorful and artistic. The stadium looked special, as well as the shots of the city. They did a nice job of covering up the smog, pollution and heat that the media has been discussing incessantly. I thought it was cool that they cheered when Iran came in. But the coolest thing was that Lopez Lomong carried the flag for America into the stadium. If you don't know who he is, Google him. His story is really incredible and trust me, you will be cheering your ass off for him this Olympics after learning about him.
