But what is unforgettable about Beijing was that AWESOME opening ceremony. Truly a spectacle. I need it on DVD.

Agree completely. I haven't missed an opening ceremony since the '70's and Beijing stands out by a mile. It blew my mind!

Well, I've learned something new and I live in Belgium! Where they call Antwerp either 'Antwerpen' or 'Anvers.'

There are some great stories about that and other early Olympics. Look it up on Wikipedia. Back when it was still a pretty small and disorganized event there were all sorts of crazy shenanigans...

Many of these Olympic Games have great stories that make for brilliant reading... from the silly "sporting" events held until the '30s, Jesse Owens and the Nazis in '36, skipping some to the near-bankruptcy of Montreal in '76, the Cold War boycotts in '80 and '84, the rise of capitalism from '84, the outrage of the OG held in Atlanta instead of Athens for the bicentennial in '96... You name it, it's there. Just try and picture the Olympics held in the Soviet Union! :)

Wasn't the outrage that Sydney got the 2000 Games instead of Athens? At least that's how I remember it.
