So I remain a sucker for the Parade of Nation part of the Olympic Games opening ceremonies. You have to sit through like two hours of interpretive dance to get there, but that what the alcohol is for. (hic) There is just something about seeing Team Moldavia walk into that stadium. They don't stand a chance in hell and Moldova is so poor a local Italian village has taken up a collection to help cover the team's costs. But damn it they are there and representing their Country and having the time of their lives and I love it.
