It'll be interesting to see how China does though, they did really good at the Summer Games.
The spectacle and grandeur of large setpiece ceremonies is lost in this technological time. Spectacle and technology don't mix.
Neither do the Olympics and pop music.
The musical acts were HILARIOUS! Not only were the vocal tracks prerecorded, but so was the sound of this one guy's tap shoes. And the tracks were employed with such clumsiness that the performers actually gave up trying to look like they were singing, dancing, etc... and sloughed around the stage like fools.
Everyone tried to look cold, as befitting the winter games, but it was indoors. So as you see people fake-shivering in their cold weather gear, you saw sweat glisten on their faces, as if they've got the chills from a fever. It looked like a typhoid convention.
What made me laugh was the fact that the lighting of the Olympic cauldron had technical difficulties.
And wow, Switzerland, Slovakia, and Netherlands already have a gold medal.
