I just watched the opening ceremony. I don't like sports, but I adore the Parade of

An athlete from Peru said that the reason they didn't have many citizens competing
was that they, qoute, don't really ski. We eat and party. Unqoute.

Of all the great and mighty nations seen walking tonight, the best by far in my mid
was Japan. Because Japan alone thought that some of their athletes should be waving
the flag of the host country as well as their own. Nobody else respected Canada like

The United States have, I think, the most athletes participating. A wooping two
hundred sixteen men and women marched out proudly bearing our national flag- AND

I like moose. Moose are really cool. But is now the time for matching moose
hats? REALLY? 

The two Koreas' did not walk together this year, as they have occasionally done in
the past.

China let Taiwan walk in seperately... Sorta. I mean they were called Taisan of
China, and their flag was basically just the Olympic symbol on a sheet. But oh well.

The Principality of Sealand is once again not participating. Or, more likely, not
allowed to participate. Poor Sealand 

Iran and Isreal agreed to participate in the games, even if it means involving
themselves in something that the other is doing. That's a good sign, I think.
(According to the announcers there have been times when one or the other would

Georgia's remaining eight atheletes still marches despite the horrifying loss of a
lugist this morning.

Thrity eight nations competing have yet to with a medal in the winter games.

All in all? Seems like it'll be interesting. (I hope Canada and Japan win

Go Canada and Japan!

I was watching it last night. (Or, at least, the beginning and end of
it. The middle, I  finished watching Lord of the Rings.) There was a
lot of stuff happening. I only got to see a few countries march out in
the Parade of Nations. I only got to Canada before my parents started
the movie.

The Americans were wearing MOOSE HATS? *feels stereotyped*

Japan waved our flag too? Wow, that's cool.

Since you guys are the host Nation you walked out last.  
Yeah, moose hats. We have moose here too so I don't think we're
intentionally stereotyping but still...

Yeah! Ganpare Nippon-sama! Do your best Canada! And Americans... Take
off the moose hats Dx

Well, I'm sure they're in Alaska, but I'm pretty sure that not ALL of
the athletes are from Alaska as well. O_e

Yes, please take off the moose hats.

What? We've got moose all over! Vermont, New York, New Jersey...
They're around.

Oh, really? I didn't know that.

I'm not a real fan of the Olympics. I don't enjoy watching other
people play sports while I just sit there. I find no fun in that.

... Wasn't my first sentence about how I don't like sports but like
the Parade of Nations?  I mean come on, if you're ganna be rude, at
least read enough to know if the other person AGREES with you -eye

I hope Canada wins everything, too.  And yeah, Japan can have
something, I guess, for loving us so much.  :P
   But really, in all seriousness, I did really appreciate the respect
Japan gave us.  It was very nice.

   On another note, I like how the inside cauldron was lit by all four
amazing Canadian athletes.  That was a very Canadian-esque way to do
things.  However, I was NOT impressed with Whiney Wayne lighting the
outside cauldron.  Oh well.  What's done is done.

   Also, I think they picked some really good people to carry the
Olympic flag.  A group like that makes you feel proud to be Canadian.

Please read your first comment over. The thing as a whole was
saracastic. Actually, your second comment is rather impolite too...
But then, so was my responce to your first comment, so that's okay.

I really like that you featured your original nations! That's just
wonderful! I wish I could watch Canadian television. The only athletes
being talked about over here are Americans. Typical, right? Yes, yes,
fresh young talent- I don't care! The news castors are too busy
telling me to watch upcoming sports that our guys are in (not ganna
happen) to tell me what countries have already won.

Sometimes not being American has it benefits.

On a very much to the side side note, am I the only one LOVING Nikki
Yanofsky's Olympic Anthem?... unless they don't have it in the States?

I don't watch the sports, really.
