What pees me off is the version of O Canada. Really pisses me off--totally unable to sing along. WTF is the point of having an anthem geared to singing along if some eejit's gonna re-arrange it into

But that should worry you because we all know from experience...... and bad experience at that......that canadian taste isn't globa taste.

A bit underwhelmed with the video but am still optimistic how it all goes together. All this talk about having less performers than beijing, vancouver compenated with the projections. Take that away

****MAJOR SPOILER****cauldron*****

Wayne Gretzky will light the cauldron. No surpize here I guess. Oh, and the "new" Canadian anthem really sucks, imo!

Umm..no <_< . Wayne Gretzky was confirmed a couple of days ago to be one of the final torchbearers before reaching BC Place (along with Arnold Schwazenneger).

That was Walter Gretzkey, his dad.

That's his dad, Walter. Wayne is lighting the cauldron, you can take it to the bank. I'm not pleased, would have preferred Betty Fox with a hologram of Terry....which, by the way, was seriously considered, and how the rumour started!

Oh..well i think i made a mistake there XD. Anyway is that official info or what? And i hope he's not the one, i would prefer an olympic athlete over him.

Wow, looks great!

In which section is the main tribune?

I guess is that rectangular box on the tribunes in front of the poles (if you look closely you can see the olympic rings there)

New pic (i'm not even going to bother saying its a spoiler XD)

I wonder whats that circular thing above the stage. Btw this is still a pic of the parade of nations apparently.

For what i can see, the aboriginal themes of the ceremony will be mixed with the parade of nations segment. Besides that, nothing else was shown on the pics.
