    On a scale of 1-10 I'd give the China opening ceremony a 11. So far this Canadian thing blows.

    I don't want to see tatted up dudes with no shirts and fat chicks in plaid tap dancing.

    I turned it off after about 20 minutes. It bored me to tears. That Canadian Miley-Cyrus looking chick that sang "Oh Canada" was damn good though.

    I'm taping it but can't be bothered to watch the whole thing. I'd rather chew aluminum foil that do that.

    Anyone know if RUSH was on? The rumor was they were to play.

    I liked it, but it's really sad news about this young Georgian luge guy.
    He was only 21.

    Hey Nestor, since you've taken a break from the Toyota bashing thread can you tell me if RUSH played yet? I'm taping the show and I'm not looking forward to going thru the whole thing just to find one song.

    The whole thing sucked. Didn't know Canada had so many tree huggers and peaceniks.

    Now, KD Lang was the only bright spot in that sorry ass show. What ever happened to her anyways?

    I wish I could help You, but I'm not really into music I guess.
    ...but no, I don't think so.
    There was Brian Adams & Nelly Furtado singing something, Sarah Mclachlan, some local chick and black opera singer lady and some dude called Garou.
    That's it.
    I hope that I didn't miss anyone.

    You, sir, are an evil man. :rofl: I saw April Wine once, way back when, but I don't usually tell anyone about that. ;)

    She did a good job I admit, although I don't know why such a pretty gal chooses to eschew a nice dress in favor of something that hides her no doubt luscious female attributes. :dunno: Must be a Canadian thing.

    Well...obviously You missed a part of the story here.
    I'm in Canada for 20 months now.
    I'm not Canadian.
    I was born and rise in Poland under the Commie occupation...and I'm quite old ***** and prefer to listen the wind on the prairies in general.
    Sorry to disappoint You here :supergrin:
