8 is said to be a very lucky number in China. Not only will the opening ceremony be held on 8-8-08, but they will start at 8:08:08, local time. Will this date & time prove lucky for the Chinese?
I, for one, am really excited to watch the Olympics. Synchronized swimming and gymnastics are 2 of my favorites, but I like to watch baseball, beach volleyball, and a bunch of others as well.
I hope the U.S. fairs well at the games this year. I'll be tuning in to NBC on occasion. Here are a couple links you can go to for all the Olympic 411.
