Olympics Opening Ceremony

The whole family watched the opening ceremony of the Torino Olympics last night. It had its unusualy moments but for the most part we enjoyed it.

Mostly we enjoyed all the 70s music that they played during the Parade of Nations. We did think it was a little unusual for an Italian Olympics to focus so much on old American music.

We were very pleased to see the warm reception that the United States athletes received from the crowd. Even better was the music playing in the background. Aretha Franklin's song Think, with its chorus of Freedom, Freedom, Freedom...

I plan on watching a lot of the Olympics over the next two weeks. But don't count on me reporting much here.
