2008 Olympic Games – Opening Ceremonies Tonight

In one of the most technically advanced opening ceremonies, Beijing proved that not only can they put together a 3 million dollar live show, but they can incorporate their 5,000 year history into it.

I DVRed the opening ceremonies and I want to write about each part of it, hopefully I will get around to it in the next few days.

The torch lighting ceremony was very creative. All eight were Chinese Olympic champions including the final carrier who they hoisted up to the top of the stadium and he “ran” around a projection that went around in 360 degrees culminating in the lighting of the cauldron followed by fireworks.

Good Luck Team USA!!!!!
