Just watching some of the athletes entering the Olympic arena. Just a couple of things I wanted to mention. First, I hate interpretative anything. Did anyone else see that history of Greece thing? What the hell was that? Statues breaking apart. Kids on "paper" boats. Human statues. Some blue thing flying around. What? Second. I was very surprise at the huge round of applause America got. I was expecting massive boos from the crowd, but the U.S. got one of the biggest cheers there. Third. The cheers for Iraq and Afghanistan was amazing. First time for something like 20 years for both countries to be in the Olympics. The crowd went nuts. Forth. It was sad to see the lack of applause for Israel. It's sad there's so much anti-semitism in the world. However, it was nice to hear a lack of applause for Iran as well. Back to Israel for a second. The gold medal hopeful in Judo for Iran it seems has refused to take part because he drew an Israeli opponent in the first round. I guess he couldn't face the shame of possibly losing to a Jew. To bad, so sad.
