The Opening Ceremonies of the 2008 Olympics was absolutely stunning. I had it taping on my DVR but as soon as it started I couldnt take my eyes off it.
It was the most visually impressive events I have ever seen. Amazing!!
THEN.....yesterday a fantastic swim race, the 400 meter which the US won by eight-hundreds of a second over France. It was an incredibly emotional victory
by the US team with Jason Lezak , the anchorman giving a superhuman effort to beat Frenchman Alain Benard who was a world record holder. It was also very
emotional because the same Bernard had earlier talked smack about how the French would "smash" the Americans in this event.
Not quite!!!!!
