Hubby hangs out at JokersUpdates.com, a site where folks talk mainly about their favourite TV shows (and I think it started out as a Big Brother update, hence the name). By the time I'd given the boys their baths, he'd read several comments about the pre-ceremony show giving them a great impression of Canada, especially the landscape. My ordinarily-won't-go-near-awards-or-Olympics-ceremonies husband just had to tune in. LOL

He did start getting bored 2 hours in, but he didn't say so. I was good until the indoor torch lighting had finished, then found the wait for the outdoor one to be a little long. Still, I'm glad I witnessed it because it was great to see how they showed off the country in so many ways throughout the ceremony. :)

I also thought the duet with Nelly Furtado and Bryan Adams was good. :) Of course, that opening sequence with the skier was pretty hard to beat. ;) (We liked how you could hear pride and excitement in the announcer's voice when saying "Calgary" for the '88 Olympics. LOL)

I wanted to watch it but I don't remember why I wasn't able to....oh wait. I think it was on the same time I was coming back from the regional wrestling tourney.
