Beijing 2008

I'm a sucker for the Olympics. I was excited to watch the Opening Ceremonies last night and I've got to say, the Chinese didn't disappoint. I'm usually bored by a bit of the pageantry but this one was so over the top that I was fascinated the whole time. The sheer magnitude of it all is just astounding. 15,000 performers, $300 million performance!

Last night I helped to clean the Bountiful Temple from 9:30 to 12:00. When I got home I watched a bit of fencing, air rifle shooting, badminton and boxing. Like I said, I'm a sucker. Here's to the US winning the medal race! Here are the current standings:
