2010 Vancouver Olympic Games
« on: June 28, 2010, 09:44:01 AM »

My Aunt just got the 2010 Vancouver Olympics Games boxed set and I have been watching a bit of it. When I had finished watching the best parts (menís hockey, menís curling, and womenís hockey) I thought, I wonder what the world thought of Vancouver Olympics. So my questions are for you: What did you think of the Vancouver Olympics? What were your favourite parts if at all? Did you enjoy the opening/closing ceremonies? Did you think we (The Canadians) did a good job hosting the games?

It was awesome.

...Except the hydraulic system that didn't work during the opening ceremony.  That was just FAIL.

As for my favourite parts: Alexandre Bilodeau (first Gold on home soil!), Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir (I just like figure skating) and probably the hockey match.

I didn't watch the closing ceremony but apparently it was just a lot of music.

Did we do a good job? Yes.  Did we pwn as much as China's 2008 Summer Games? No.

Also: does this belong in the Politics section or General Discussion?

It could belong in both.

The closing ceremony was way  more than that, they had a entire part dedicated to the stereotypes of Canada! Their were huge blow-ups of moose, mounties, beavers you name a stereotypical Canadian thing and it was their. They had comedians come out and lots more!!
