Score One for the Spoken Word
If you didn't see the Olympic opening ceremony, you missed a great show.
Put on for a fraction of the cost of last summer's Beijing olympics, the ceremonies
did a great job of giving a flavor of Canada, and entertaining at the same time.
For me, a highlight of the show was Canadian slam poet Shane Koyczan.
His rendition of his poem WE ARE MORE was amazing. This shaky handicam video
doesn't do it justice, but NBC hasn't made it available yet.
