So who's watchin the Olympics?

I have, that's who!!! And it's been great!

Well, mostly.

They totally screwed up the torch-lighting ceremony. See, they had these 4 pillar-like things that came up out of the ground/stage and wrapped up around the actual torch/cauldron. And only 3 of them came up!! But first they spent 5 minuets trying to figure out why the 4th one wasn't coming up. and to the 4 torch bearers (1 for each pillar-like thingy) just stood there (actually only 3 of them stood cuz one of them was a Parolympian in a wheelchair) with these big, worried smiles on their faces, trying to figure out why the pillar-like things weren't coming up and what they were supposed to do now. And then the technicians said "What the heck, pull the other 3 up anyways." And so the pulled the other 3 up and so it looked really lopsided. And there was a trench filled with lighter fluid in them that the torch-bearers lit, but since there was only 3 pillars, only 3 of the bearers got to light the cauldron :_(


(That's a crying face, BTW)


So it looked like this:


But with 4 people and only 3 pillars. :0

  1. Oh, I missed that part. Poor 4th torch bearing person who didn't get to light their cauldron.

    I watched the men's half-pipe. Shaun White is awesome.

SERIOUSLY, people? What is the point of blogging if nobody comments? If you can't think of anything to say about the post, THEN JUST SAY "HI"!

Have a nice day.
