Well, almost.  The opening ceremonies take place this evening (6pm Vancouver time; 9pm Eastern time) but there has already been some unfortunate news.  Georgian athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili, 21, was killed during his luge practice run this morning.  Reporters are saying that he he hit the wall coming around the final bend on the track, which has been deemed the world’s hardest and dangerous.  So, so tragic.  My condolences to his family, friends and fellow Olympians.  Let’s hope the Olympics will bring everyone together during such a sad, sad situation.

Despite everything, I’m looking forward to see what the VANOC people have put together for the opening ceremony, after yearsss of planning.  I have a feeling it’s gonna be kickass.  Wish I could be there as who knows when will be the next time we host an Olympic games…but either way, I’m still cheering, GO CANADA GO!!!
