Man they spent $42 million on the Opening Ceremonies and there are 15,000 people in the cast? Not even the Super Bowl halftime show comes close to that kind of production. The London Olympics are about to begin and who knows about the high drama that will unfold in so many sports that we never see very often. But that's part of the fun of it. We don't know all the names and we don't even know the rules of most of this stuff-- but the emotion of victory and defeat are still big time and television plays well to it all.
Jordyn Wieber is done next Thursday one way or another. The USA gymnastics team can win gold on Tuesday and the individual all around competition ends next Thursday. By next Thursday night her unreal story which has unfolded over the last year will come to completion. And who knows if we will ever see her in this type of arena internationally again. Let the games begin!
