Winter Olympics

The opening ceremony of Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 is taking place on February 12 at Vancouver BC Place Stadium, British Columbia in Canada, which has a capacity of 60000 seats. The Governor General of Canada, Michaelle Jean will open the biggest event of the year, The Theme for the games will be
"TO INSPIRE THE WORLD"  and ,for the last couple of weeks the olympics have been advertiseing it on TV with the tune of "cry me a river" sung by Michael Buble his version, love that song I even have that tune on my phone it's funny really cos when the Olympic tune came on tv I would pick up my phone, thinking it was my phone ringing lol.
 The opening ceremony was awesome

I loved the way the torch was  lite it was fantastic the way the three poles came together in the middle so the flame in centre could be lite, 

 The big point, following the solemn talk from the commissioners was k.d. lang amid an arena of candles singing the work of another Canadian laureate, Leonard Cohen with the song  know as a song from "Shrek," the lovely "Hallelujah

Found this on u tube beautiful go on have a listen....

My Favorite sporting event at the Olympics is the figure skating, but with the time differance I have some late nights, plus I can watch it in peace
My hubby has reminded me that my blog is called the sport's widow and that I seem to write about sports  on the blog, and when the olympics are on I watch sports  well I write on what I like lol

On a sad note It was terrible sad to hear the shocking news the death of 21-year-old Nodar Kumaritashvili, who crashed at speeds of more than 90mph on one of the most dangerous sections of the luge run
My prayers go out to his Family
