The 2010 Winter Olympics - Vancouver, BC

The Opening Ceremonies - despite a last-minute glitch - were a terrific spectacle of Canadian pride and international commitment to sport. The parade of nations, the native American tribal introductions, the music, constellations all made the show an authentic experience quite different from the pomp and excess associated with the opening ceremony in Beijing, China for the 2008 summer games.

As we enter the competition, I hope for good sport. I cheer for the USA, but also for my ancestral homes of Norway and Sweden!! Too, we all must cheer for the host nation of Canada and that they might (in their third Olympiad hosting) might win a gold on home soil. Track the medals here:
