    It is a bittersweet start to the Olympics and such a sad loss today . . . I do not have the strength to watch the footage . . . may Nodar Kumaritashvili rest in peace. God Bless our Olympians and keep them safe!

    Let the Games Begin! I am so looking forward to 2010 Winter Olympics! Rooting for Team USA!

    Vancouver do you need snow? . . . we have Snow in the South that we will gladly send your way!

    Enjoy the games!

    Alrighty then, first shedding of tears!! 15 more days! I need a box of tissue next to my loveseat

    I just watched CEO of the Vancouver Olympic Committee John Furlong, his history coming to Canada from Ireland as a young man. Arriving in Canada, the custom's officer told him to do his part to keep Canada a great country. The challenges, the hopes and dreams of bringing his idea of getting the Olympics in Vancouver, what a great story.

    The commercials are killing me, so moving!!! Anyone else getting the fabulous commercials?

    I have nothing against The Govenor General, Michaelle Jean, but why is she getting all that camera time and hardly any for PM Harper?

    Re: The Olympic Games

    Good point, re Haitian.

    I love the countries with one or two athletes. Such dedication!

    The always well dressed Italians, as the announcer said. I have so many different countries/athletes to root for.

    I'm loving the Brian Williams reporting, I've been watching him on the Olympics for as long as I can remember.

    I also love when they show the President/Prime Minister of the country as the athletes walk by. So proud.

    Count me in for some tissue. I can't stop tearing up! Great story about Furlong and I love that Rick Hansen is doing a series on difference makers. The commercials are awesome!

    Great job by CTV so far although I'm flipping to NBC's coverage because I like Bob Costas.
