American Idol....and stalls
I just wanna start by saying how much I enjoy the Olympics and all the pomp and circumstance, but mostly the "come together" moments as a nation...kinda gives me hope. This years opening ceremony left me a little indifferent. I totally got all the symbolism, I truly did, but a homage to the national healthcare, that was weird. Couple of things before I get to my main complaint...
Why is the Olympic torch, the symbol of all nations and cornerstone of Greek origins stationed in the track and field venue? I read that when the track and fields competions start, the torch will be moved to one end of the field....really? Could if have killed the powers that be to hoist it up, and perch it up high where ALL people can see and admire it. I actually liked how it was lit this time, very clever, but they could have done that up high...children are young, they can run upstairs.
Give the people what they want, the privilege and right to see the Olympic torch flame shinning long and bright over their city.
And speaking of the people....Would it hurt for the Queen to crack a smile...Jeeze, little lovely children were singing, "God Bless the Queen" and she still had that stick up her bum.
Anywho.....Ryan Seacrest. Really? What the heck does he have to do with sports? I swear, he must be related to someone in power because he is so out of place I just wanna throw my shoe at the TV every-time I see him. Actually, I wanna do that anyways. Bad choice NBC....really bad.
I'm Just Sayin'
