  1. I realize many of you think the parade is getting a little drawn out, but either all the athletes should have the opportunity to particpate or none of them should. It wouldn't be fair to exclude anyone who earned the right to be there. The parade still has a magical feel to me, it was my first Olympic memory back in Lake Placid and probably stirred my obsession with the Games to where it is today.

    Hopefully Beijing will follow Torino's lead and use a lot of disco, boy did that ever make me feel like a 13 year-old again.

  2. Isn't it odd that they a starting the year to go celebration with a sport that is not on the Olympic program. Isn't it also odd that NBC is showing the game live at 8:30 am on a Wednesday. We can watch meaningless pre-season football (even if it is my beloved Seahawks) at weird hours, but marquee Olympics events have to be shown on tape long after the outcome is known. Its also a shame it isn't being played at the Birds Nest, that would be awesome, even for a pre-season game.

  3. NBC doesn't deserve any such favors. I find it ironic that they are trying to get the swimming finals switched for their convenience. How many times have you found any swimming competition on NBC since Athens. I don't believe I've seen any. Likewise with track and field, some, but not a great deal of coverage between Games. Yet as we get closer to the Games you see a zillion promos for these athletes who they ignore for four years.
