We are the World, We are the children

Ok, I know the title of this post is a really awful charity song but I've been watching the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics, so it ties in with the Olympian "let's all get along" sentiment. The usual opening ceremony elements of contempory dance, moving sculptures and fireworks were all present. Also involved was a Ferrari, lots of blue capes, Susan Sarandon and Yoko Ono! Now, Susan Sarandon is a U.N Goodwill ambassador as well as a very talented actress but Yoko....

Another thing that annoys me about opening ceremonies is seeing the athletes entering the stadium Talking On Their Mobile Phones. Look, everyone you care about should either be in the stadium or watching it on t.v, so why not just fully enjoy the moment?

Anyway, I love the Winter Olympics. It's a fabulous excuse to watch sports that you never normally would, like Moguls and then there is all the drama and prettiness of the figure skating.
I just wish it happened more often then every four years.
