[quote=“cctang”]And let me just say… yay!
I will be attending the first week of the Olympics, including the opening ceremonies. The events I’m hoping to hit are gymnastics, diving, basketball, and probably baseball. The first two are definite, the last two are questionable only because of distance of travel… both are at wukesong, which is far from the rest of the Olympic Village.
The chances of this are unfortunately low, but I’m hoping that a last-second handshake between Ma Ying-jeou and Hu Jintao will allow Ma to attend the Olympics games, and that Beijing organizers will allow the “unofficial” flying of the ROC flag.[/quote]
Did you see the Opening ? And did you see some of the other events you mentioned? Lucky you if you did, I wouldve loved to see the Opening . Wow. I was much impressed with China’s holding of the 2008 olympics. Congratulations to China and the Chinese people for such a fine job !!
And boo to the TAiwanese baseball team for losing just bout every match. GOOD GRIEF. Those guys were supposed to at least beat the Chinese?? Who was at their first Olympic baseball game. I heard it was a good game tho. Too bad nobody I knew taped it for me to watch.
And yes, its too bad that the PRC authorities didnt allow the Chinese Taipei Team to compete as the Taiwan Team along with the ROC flag. They couldve called it the DAN DEE (local) government of Taiwan Team or some such?
