Say what you want about China, that was some Olympics

Recommended Posts

They did a helluva job.  The opening and closing (still watching) ceremonies were amazing.    And I'm glad the protests (smog, Tibet, Dafur, human rights) had a minimal impact.  There's a place for those, and it ain't the Olympics.  Hat's off to China.  It was all very grand.

London is going to have some work to do to even match them in 2012.

It probably took a great many rounds of 7.62x39 to keep that protest quiet.

with silencer of course.

Considering the size of the nation and an international impact China's been seeking, what was done was in fact not that much exceeding anyone's expectation. Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if London is not successful trying to do better. That surely was something significant.

Go Phelps  ;D ;D ;D ;D

London isn't going to be able to come close to matching those opening ceremonies. Its too bad that news articles like these don't quite make the headlines more often:
