I didn't mean to watch all 4.5 hours of last night's Olympics opening ceremonies, and yet somehow, I found my butt planted firmly on my couch, eyes glued to the TV, all evening. And no regrets! That was some bonkers stuff: the pyrotechnics, the outfits, the world leaders, the good and bad music, the CORGIS, allllll the soot- and mud-covered costumes, so much nationalism, the logistics (someone buy those athlete-wranglers a beer), the 16-year-olds marching next to 61-year-olds, the people who somehow kept drumming for like 3 hours without their arms falling off. Nutty.
Whether you watched the ceremonies or not, here are several awesome things to come out of them.
