Happy Olympics Everyone

Let the Olympic games begin!

Finally the 4 year wait is over and it is summer Olympic time again! I can't wait, DVR is set and ready to go.  Last night the opening ceremonies were pretty awesome as expected. So excited to see the parade of countries (even though our outfits were pretty bad).  Not as bad as Sweden who thought that wearing their interpretation of Where' Waldo would work (it was pretty bad).

I loved seeing all the children's book characters come to life, especially the 100 foot Voldemort.
 Seriously was anyone expecting that? How awesome! Too bad he was destroyed by Mary Poppins (who I despise :) ). I also loved how they had Mohamed Ali touch the Olympic flag before it was raised. Of course seeing Beckham drive the boat in with the Olympic touch was awesome!
Another great feature was the music. I mean Muse, Pink Floyd, and Beatles all playing in the background just to name a few.  Then at the end Sr. Paul McCarthy singing Hey Jude.

Well done on the opening games London, well done!  So excited to start the Olympics off with some swim and Michael Phelps today! 

Let the games begin! And may the odds be ever in the USA's favor. ;)
