I'm watching the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. Its fun to watch, actually. Right now I am seeing people dance around rings that are moving up and down a metal scaffolding... I assume they represent the medals.
There is something almost agan about the whole affair. I keep expecting to see a Druid or something suddenly flash into the arena. I watched as the Italian goddess walked slowly with the Italian flag to the center of the arena... she really was quite beautiful.
The rings just turned turned into the olympic rings. This is pretty spectaular.
And now we get the parade of nations.
