I had hoped to but so much is going on I can't seem to get organized enough to sit down and concentrate on anything

Is there a recap on tonight?

Stunning! I am on sensory overload and I'm in Northen Michigan - nowhere near China! It was spectacular in every way. Hope you all get to see all of it.
Still think the arrow into the cauldron in Barcelona was the best ever, but tonight's show will go down as possibly the best ever overall.

Let the Games begin!

We made a point to see the flame at the end and it was spectacular. I wish NBC hadn't cut away before the fireworks were done. It must've been something to see in person!
