Go Team USA

I love the Olympics. I always think it's a magical time. I view it as a time when the world tries to come together to celebrate the innocence of the games and to honor the Olympians hard work.
I love London. I've been there a few times and studied abroad there while I was in college. When I heard they got the bid, I couldn't wait to see what they did with it. Now with that said, I watched the Opening Ceremonies just like I'm sure a billion others did. Was I the only one who was a little shall we say... bored by the beginning? I thought it focused way too much on the country's history. This is their third time hosting the games. We know their history. It seems like they wanted to smash it all together. The music was good but the story of the teens was just too much.

I did love the walk of the athletes though and of course the lighting of the torch! I can't wait to see the swimming, gymnastics, running and badminton! Those people are serious about their badminton!

I'm a passive Olympics watcher. I get sucked in when it's on but I don't turn it on myself. However, you can't help but want the US to do amazing, passive or not!

I love the Olympics, but I haven't been able to see it over here. :-(

Love your new layout and design! So clean and pretty!

I saw some the girls table tennis and badminton- you were right, those people are serious about that game!

I missed the first hour of the opening ceremonies, but it sounds like I didn't miss much. I will say that I am DYING TO GO TO LONDON NOW! Gymnastics and diving are my favorites!!

I love the Olympics too but I agree that the opening ceremonies were a little lackluster, and at points I got really confused as to what they were trying to portray.

Wow! Just saw the new look- it's wonderful! I love the Olympics and I think London's done a spectacular job so far hosting!

I absolutely adore London and think they've done a fabulous job hosting so far. I just wish all the seats were filled at the venues. It stinks seeing empty seats...

I love London and all, but this year I am so not in the mood for any Olympics. Not sure why, but I think it's just not that anymore. :( HOWEVER, I watched the opening ceremony...that's still my favorite!
