    Default 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver!

    Like we did before, can we all PLEASE be careful about posting spoilers in thread titles regarding the Olympics? It really sucks for someone to tell you who won when you want to go home after work and watch it for yourself. For those who are new, here is a link to how we did the threads 2 years ago. Oympic diving *spoilers*

    That said, who is excited about the opening ceremonies tonight? There's no way in hell they can top China, but I think Canada just might have a lot more heart in it.

    We're all excited up here in Canada about who is going to light the cauldron. Support is firmly behind the late Terry Fox's mother Betty. Some are speculating that a hologram of Terry will be used to light the cauldron. That would be amazing.I'd be a blubbering ball of goo if that happens. I'm sure we'll put on a show tonight. Lots of fist nation dancers and so much more. I'm so excited!

    I am usually luke warm on the whole Olympic thing, until they start. Then I can really get into it! I love how they spotlight some of the athlete's and you hear their individual stories....

    Looking forward to some great competitions and some exciting moments!

    If t13nif's preview of the dress rehearsal is anything to go by, "heart" is a euphemism for phallic symbolism and I eagerly await the results on Youtube tomorrow.

    Hahaha, god i hope the cameras capture the full effect. I guess i can spill now . There are 4 totem poles which are clear and made to look like ice which rise like 4 massive cocks out of the floor of the stadium. Because they are clear, it's not immediately evident that they are totem poles...all you can see is the outline of the 'head' --literally and figuratively!

    But yes, the ceremony does have a lot of heart and is stereotypically Canadian. Modest, sincere, humbly patriotic, some great music. It exceeded my expectations. Mostly i am glad that they didn't try to do anything close to the Beijing cermonies.

    Can't wait. Winter sports are way more interesting IMO than summer, and I'm glued to the TV for both. Love the downhill skiing.

    Are you talking about his show on Sundance Channel? No, I don't get that channel - dammit! I keep waiting for it to be on iTunes, but the little bit I've seen on YouTube is fucking hilarious.

    Knowing Canada, the opening ceremony will be modest, cheezy, self deprecating, and overly cultural with indian crap thrown around at every opportunity, all highlighting the togetherness and cuddly good feelings that Canada is supposed to represent, topped off with bad music by third rate Canadian Idol losers.

    It's about as much as we can do, since we don't have a million chinese choreographed dancers held at gunpoint to twirl flags in front of shoddily constructed stadiums.

    yeah, on Sundance. He's got a potty mouth, and seems to really have a type of hatred for skating. But, i like his 'i don't give a shit' attitude.
