An Hour Late And A Drachma Short


This being a Friday night, my neighborhood is doing its normal thing: drinking beer, throwing darts, and shooting the shit in my garage. Since we now have cable TV in the garage (long story; short version is "Thanks, Rabbit"), we're watching the Olympic opening ceremonies. It occurs to me now, halfway through, that our running commentary on stupid stuff (e.g., "Lime green blazers? Who the hell told the Brazilians that looked good?") would have made some funny liveblogging, especially since I have a video capture card with a CATV connection and I could grab screenshots to illustrate my point.

One thing that strikes me - it seems like all the Arab countries' flag-carriers have 'shooting' as their Olympic event. Just sayin'.


Sounds like you had a great time, Chris. I'd much rather have been there, than hanging out with a buncha British female in-laws in town for my sister-in-law's wedding. Grrr.

But the Greeks certainly surprised me. They put on a helluva show.

It was a pretty cool show. I especially liked it when they blazed up the Olympic spliff.
