    WOW!!!

    It was spectacular and absolutely brilliant.
    I enjoyed every minute.
    The Chinese pulled it off with almost an unreal quality.

    Your thoughts??

    Well I can't think of an opening ceremony that was better. Barcelona's in 1992 was memorable as was Sydney's in 2000. But Beijing might have raised the bar.

    I think it was THE most elaborate, precise, moving, and spectacular work of pageantry that I've ever witnessed in my life. The fact that most of it was precision work that rivaled the best machinery in the world and was actually executed by humans is just stunning to me.

    And the "bird's nest" has got to be the most technologically advanced stadiums ever created - anywhere.

    Truly amazing. Way to go, China!

    Absolutely breathtaking. The fireworks alone would have done it for me, but with everything else... Wow. Only downside was the horrendously irritating Canadian commentary on CBC...

    Vancouver is going to have a hell of a time making anything near as spectacular as that in 2010.
