The column things with the people inside was sweet! I can't believe it was people inside doing that, it was amazing! Plus the cheerleaders have been standing there forever, they must be tired.

Yeah I watched it on a 52" HDTV.

2 things annoyed me like no other:

1) It wasn't live when everywhere else was. I'm telling you, those greedy ************** just play play it in prime time for the money.
2) The butt load of commercials ^

It just finished up here. Very cool. The Chinese sure know how to put on a show.

JogaBonito1502, if you wanted to see it live, you would have had to get up real early this morning.
