Just watched the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics
Looks like they had a Sydney 2000 moment with a malfunction of the torch,
they just couldn't get the 4th pole working.
I wonder what went wrong?, I guess we'll find out in due course...

Probably 'Made in Canada' instead of 'Made in China'.

Says "Maid in Chinada" on the QC sticker. Must be OK.

Thank goodness there was no malfunction when that boy was
"flying".  To me, that was the best part of the ceremony.
A wonderful mix of technology, athletic grace and acting
ability. Awesome!

Not only boring, but you could see all the harnesses :-(

That's a shame - I wish you could have enjoyed it.

The "ballet" in the pairs figure skating last night was excellent!

It seems that Australia had a part to play in that glitch since David Atkins was
the ceremony director...

The Aussie can't be blamed for a bunch of Canucks that he was forced to use.

You are correct Fritz - I was just putting it out there to see the response.
Just in case that when it was discovered David Atkins was the ceremony director,
Australia would get the blame for the stuff-up. His past record is exemplary and
he must have to rely upon many hundreds of underlings to do their bit correctly
- and that isn't possible to guarantee.

At least he can't be blamed for that leaking ice resurfacing machine at the
speed skating rink. I'm sure if that was in Australia somebody would have used
inherent bushman's ingenuity and replaced the broken bit in 30 minutes.

I was waiting for some bearded old gent in greasy overalls to walk out
on the stage and whack something with a hammer.
