I worded it wrong, I like the olympics and will watch it when its on, but hockey is the only winter event(maybe snowboarding also)that I actually get excited for, the rest of it I just watch for something interesting at the time, but I could care less who wins or loses(root for the US of course, but if they dont win, i'm not losing sleep over it)

Good. We need more American's to watch. So I don't feel guilty about not watching.

Hockey is great, but other than that I'm not big on the Winter Games.

Even with the Summer Games, the only ones I really follow are Boxing and Basketball.

I thought the opening ceremonies were pretty lame. A few bright spots but mostly weak....

what did you expect ?....were in a recession up here you know!....we just dont have any extra money right now for any extravagances...just the necessities.
like the mens hockey team.we spent lots and lots of money on the mens hockey team....so good luck there boys.
who knows though....maybe next time we host the winter Olympics we will be in a better financial situation and be able then to put on a good show.
hope so...i just hate seeing you disappointed like that Chuck.

I like the snowboarding also, mainly just the superpiper

I like the track and field for the summer games, the basketball is alright, but I don't get pumped up for it

I'm not dissapointed in Canada bro... remember I'm from Seattle, I've been to Vancouver many, many times and absolutely love it!!

I thought some of the speeches were a little long and boring.. and for me the best part of any opening ceramony is watching the cauldron get lit so obviously that was a big let down. :-( Even IF all the kinks were worked out I just don't think it was very creative and I'm not a fan of having 4 flames but that's just me.

I HATE KD Lang but it does have a great voice. I found the song it sang a little repetitive but it sang it well.

I enjoyed seeing Orr & The Great One, Donald Southerland and the weird looking dude with the chin beard that gave the monologue.

The dude flying around touching the ground was pretty cool too...

I guess I'd give it a C+

But Canada gets an A-

i'm not much of an "it" fan either but i thought he/she did a good job with the song.
