Winter Olympics opens in Torino

For once I actually watched the opening ceremony – quite impressive. Looking forward to watching the coverage, just hope the American networks do a better job than they did with the Athens coverage, which was dire.

People definitely seem more pumped up for it here than back in the UK. I guess this partly due to lack of expected success and representation in most events. Shame really, as to me it’s an amazing spectacle regardless of who competes and who takes gold.

The mens downhill and halfpipe competition starts on sunday.
