    Yeah... I've always loved the ceremonies as much as watching the actual sports themselves.

    The whole environment of the olympics is just so amazing. I think my fav must be diving, it's just so tense and exciting :)

    In chinese its gong fu :p

    Yeah, that's what was supposed to happen in FIBA. And they did it during the first games, but got owned in the end. China team FTW!

    I went to Beijing over the summer and saw the stadiums. All I can say is =OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
