…………. WOW.. It made me tear up a lot……………………
As I watched it and seeing all those people from so many different cultures ….
… it reminded me of this Blogging culture, or rather this Mix of so many cultures that so many of us from all around this large world can share almost instantly and so many of these people I have met here on WordPress genuinely care about each other………..
You could see the sheer joy in most everyone face who was a participant, both volunteers and Olympians are truly happy to just be there.
I found it so wonderful to see the Peoples from so many nations all in one place in the world to compete against each other in healthy competition, not in a war.
I think I just realized that I am more of a romantic and softy as I get older. I just thought it was marvelous. You have to think that if you were involved in any way with this event, as participant or volunteer, you are one of relatively few people in this world who can say you were a part of this magnificent event. what an experience that must be for those people.
And the Show itself, Oh Oh oh WOWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!.
I can’t fathom how one would put something that big together!
I have done entertaining on stage before, both as the talent and as the technical side of the business, tinkering around with lighting rigs and sound boards, and I was thinking to myself that It must have taken a very long time and a few people with very big brains and limitless imagination to think up, plan out, sketch out, tech up, Pyro, and choreograph, organize, coordinate, and on and on and on, that whole 4 hour show.
I can tell you that several people and companies have just made some big names for them selves in the industry because of what seemed to be a flawless production. My hat is off to ALL involved, top to bottom.!!!!!!!!!!
I do have two personal “Why not’s?”
ONE– Why was not Sir Elton John’s music sampled in the production?????/ You have to wonder………
TWO– The only real flaw I feel was with the finale. Someone should have made real dam certain that Ringo was playing drums on that stage with Sir Paul. After all, this show was also a celebration of all things British, and what band is more celebrated in the WORLD than the Beatles? I don’t think there is one. I know this want about the Beatles, but I felt It was s slight on ring to not have him there. they DID play Beatles songs. And while they were at it, I feel Sean and Julian also should have been on that stage.. That would have been Perfect!
Wow I knocked this one out REAL quick. It s first for me I think.
