    They should have just shown "Get on My Horse" on a loop. For several hours.

    Wow. Just wow. I mean, no one would be able to come close to Beijing, but this ceremony looked all sorts of awful.

    I don't even know where to begin....

    -Wayyyyy too long native Canadian bit.
    -The Irish fiddling and river dancing bit represents......Canada??? Lolwut???
    - Torch lighting fail was appropriate. But holy shit....lighting a torch, then putting Wayne Gretzky in the back of a pickup truck to light ANOTHER torch???? What. The. FUCK. And why does it look like it's made of paper mâchÃ[​IMG] and tin foil???
    - God, that was awful.

    The only legitimately cool part was the Orca whale & blow hole thing.

    Props for courage in having a poet at the opening ceremonies, although his poem chiefly seemed to be setting out Canadia's differences from the US.

    Also props for including Romeo Dallaire, although he doesn't look too good and, I noticed, seemed to be the only bearer of the banner who didn't get a close-up, I wonder why.

    Srsly, though, I couldn't have imagined how shambolic the entire thing has been.

    Also, the flying on wires thing still isn't cool. A little less cheesy than Beijing, though.
