Subject: Not everyone loved the Olympics or closing ceremonies.

Written By: JamieMcBain on 03/02/10 at 4:36 pm

There has been really stinging reviews about the ceremonies......

One reviewer compared the closing ceremonies, to that of the one in Berlin, in 1936, because of the huge presence of The Canadian flag.

I never watch opening or closing ceremonies. I am only interested in the actual events...

If I had a Top 10 "don't care about it" list, the Winter Olympics would make the Top 5, if I remembered to put them on the list.

They were entertaining, they were fine.
The huge presence of the Canadian flag. What did they expect, weren't the Olympics in Canada?
Maybe a Lithuanian flag would be better?

They were probably just upset that the Olympics were in Canada, and that we won so many gold medals.  It's not our fault Canada is so awesome

The article does wreak of the smell of sour grapes.
