I watched a bit of the opening cermony of the Olympics last evening. One thing I'll say--I would fail geography if I were in school now. I hadn't heard of some of the smaller countries out there, much less have any clue as to where they are on a map. I will admit the coverage was pretty good and it was nice to see that world can set aside all the political differences to welcome the athletes to the games.
This morning, I got up and saw that the U.S. Women's basketball team easily took care of New Zealand in the opening round play. Later today, we get swimming and the women's volleyball competition. I may have to tune in for some of those events.
