I had the day off today and admittedly watched a lot of TV. It seems that as of this week, Canada-wide in particular, the anticipation has legitimately changed to excitement. I have pretty high hopes for the opening ceremonies. Being indoors really limits the overall "feel" in my opinion, but I think the jaw-dropping Chinese display a few years ago has sort of set a precedent that the Vancouver organizers can't ignore. But will it be Gretzky to light the flame? I'll definitely be watching to find out. Many of the high-schools and universities (particularly out west) have the week of the 14th-21st (if not more) off of school. I sort of hope that a lot of the kids, like me, spend their break watching a lot of the events on TV. I sort of feel like a kid I'm so excited. Am I the only one? Vancouverites, how has the transportation situation been over these last few days? Oh, and the other 2010 Olympics thread went to crap in a hurry. Let's try to let this one live for the next few weeks.
