O' Canada!



What an amazing opening ceremony!! Did you watch? What was your favorite part? I think the whales were my favorite part. Followed very very closely by the colorful artsy funky fiddle and dance number! Loved that!!

Looking forward to watching over the next 16 days!

*Peace!

The whales were my favorite part too....maybe it's because I was in Canada this summer and got to see the whales while I was there. It was truly beautiful!

You betcha I watched. It's my hometown! Well...I watched from my TV! Your favourites were mine too. Loved those whales and the fiddling was great. They almost made up for those slow bits near the end!

It's the funky fiddler/folk dancer that I'll remember most.

It was fantastic wasn't it? I liked the Canadian Rockies one where the mountains came up and the skiers and snowboarders were in the air. Awesome performances by everyone!! The fiddler/folk dancers reminded me of my grand-daughter who I suspect loved this one!!

Oh good -- I actually saw all the parts you mentioned! lol! I went to bed a little after 11 -- past my bedtime! :D It was fun to watch though.

I really enjoyed it. I don't know that I can choose a favorite part.

I loved it all, I get so excited about the Olympics!

The personal best was seeing one of my youngest daughter's best friends dance. She is with the ballet company in Vancouver and they performed. We actually got to see her for a fleeting second. What fun!

LOVED the whales, but my favorite part was when the kid was running on the "prairie." And nothing beats Donald Sutherland's voice!

I missed the whales!!!!!!!! We're 8 hours ahead and I didn't know when they were playing the ceremonies, so we caught it in the middle. I loved what I did see, though!
