I know this particular event took place some time ago, but with the Summer Games around the corner, I began to think about the opening ceremonies. This is what is supposed to open your event, kick it off with a bang. Although I felt a great sense of pride as I watched, I did find some of the "pieces" a little lackluster, lacking something. I wanted to see what others thought as well.
I took to YouTube to watch some videos that had been posted and read some reviews. I was pleasantly surprised to find that most people felt the ceremonies were truly magical.
"I am a New Yorker and want to say how proud I am to have the Canadians as neighbors. What good people! I worked in Toronto some years ago and it was a lovely experience. You Canadians have every reason to be proud - of your country, and of your good people."
watching this in 2012 and literally got shivers and tears in my eyes from watching this especially when the canadians walked in i am so proud to be canadian
I went through many pages to try and find a worthwhile negative comments, but all I could find were jabs here and there about some of the artists, kind of petty in my mind, however, I don't think enough to really rate on the measurement scale.
All and all, this event was truly one of a kind and very, very successful.
Where you there? Did you watch? What did you think?
