I have to say that all the opening ceremonies always get me choked up and teary eyed. I guess maybe it's because people from all over the world have put their life and soul into these events. It's one of the few things or the only thing where the world gets together without politics and just enjoys . I watched the single short programs of figure skating last night, I have to say that Wagner , who I don't know, put on an excellent short program and was really low balled in the scoring. Maybe there are politics involved.
