Yeah I'll do this.  If I forget to submit anything by the time the ceremonies start could you possibly send me a PM?

I just watched the opening. Here is my very short review.

 

Magic animals, children singing, traditional dresses, fireworks, dancing, drums, Gangnam style ... what could possible go wrong? It was a fine opening but maybe a bit too long. (But really, every opening is too long.) The theme was peace and future technology. They showed some of the present technology in the show, which looked good. The hope for peace was of course showing when Korea entered as one country. Everyone has their own oppinions about that but it´s nice to see an effort to work together. 

 

Most countries´ athletes wore clothes that didn´t stood out much, Bermuda`s athletes being an exception in their shorts. There were many cute hats. I like the combination of red, blue and white so some of my favourite countries where Norway, UK and USA. I think it looks silly when everyone is trying to take pics with their phones. You are part of the Olympic opening, enjoy the moment! 

 

It´s strange to see "Olympic Athletes from Russia". I hope things will be better in the next olympics. It´s great to see the small nations with only one or two athletes. 

 

I almost cried when they lit the olympic fire. That is always my favourite part. :)

They are showing the Opening Ceremony here on TV and I'm getting to see bits of it; trying to multi-task.

 

I agree that it is great to see the small countries with the one or two athletes, but they are their to compete, just the same.

I have updated the first post with players and countries. I have skipped Russia since Russia isn´t competing this year. It was my daughter who rolled the dices so blame her if it doesn´t go well for you. :D

Norway got three medals in todays cross country skiing. As a neighbour, who is obliged to hate Norway, I´m depressed. But as a participant in this game I´m feeling very happy. :D

Every time I try to catch some of the events in the evening, I seem to get it when it's skiing related.

I like skiing. More cross country than downhill though. 

 

I´ve watched some snowboard this week. I don´t know much about it, but wow, it looks so cool. It´s amazing what they can do.

Wow! This was a great olympics for Sweden. We came in 6th place on the medals table and I think that is the best we have ever done. I will miss watching all the sports but I won´t miss waking up really early every morning. How did it go for your countries?

Congratulations Nini! That's appropriate as you did all the work lol.

 

a Swedish lady I play an online farm game with was very excited about how well Sweden was doing this year. She was super excited about curling the other night. 

 

I... didn't watch any of it and I don't know how we did. Not a lot of people I know chanting USA USA these days so I'm guessing we've done better in the past.
