    So who's going to be watching the opening ceremony tonight (or right now via stream)?

    And what events are y'all looking forward to?

    Phelps last Olympics was pretty crazy. I was never a swim fan (my sister is) but damn those races got me on the edge of my seat. Was pretty intense to watch and look forward to seeing how he does this games. 4yrs older though, I dunno if that'll slow him down or not.

    I love it all - kudos to the men & women for their dedication to their sport and then representing their countries on such a huge stage!!

    I am especially looking forward to Michael Phelps and what he accomplishes & you can't knock Usain Bolt on the track - that guy is FAST!!!

    Watching the opening ceremony now, the way they got the olympic rings up was really cool. And as fake as it was the Queen parachuting out of a helicopter made me chuckle. Still watching...
