Things You Probably Missed From the Opening Ceremonies

(Even if You Watched Them)

Hat tip to Rusty at MyPetJawa

OK, so I was in a pretty cynical mood when I posted that top ten list last night. I really was expecting some ugliness. But my wife tells me the crowd was fairly warm towards the US athletes. Of course, The Talkative Twins (Couric and Costas) had to point out that it's despite Greek opposition to US foreign policy, "Because the realize the athletes aren't their government." Had to get that dig in, didn't ya?

Well apparently, one group of foreign athletes decided to take out their feelings toward the US government on the athletes.
