We're 30 minutes in to the Opening Ceremony, and so far, I'm not terribly impressed. And that disappoints me.
No "wow." Very soft opening. All very tepid. Nice color schemes. The athletes look so very happy. And I'm so glad the native peoples have such an important role, which I hope was a sincere gesture.
NBC's coverage is really tedious however. First of all, shut up, announcers. We can see what's happening. Stop the back stories. And stop cutting the camera work in MTV-fashion. It's like dance on televsion; you miss the big picture.
I'll hold my overall judgement, but I'm hoping this picks up.
