The 2012 Summer Olympics in London opened last Friday with what i thought was an incredible ceremony. The special effects were brilliant and the storyline was very moving.
I've been watching a number of events since then, including gymnastics, volley ball, cycling and swimming. Of course, I always pull for my own country, the United States, but I also cheer for many of the brave and talented athletes who participate. It's great to see the world come together mostly.
