    Didn't watch it. The Olympics are being hosted in a country that does not support civil rights or animal rights. I will not support athletes that chose to accept this rather than say NO to such an outdated barbaric way of existing. People are being beaten up and killed, dogs are being slaughtered. Dogs that once were pets but were let loose by the owners when the government took their yards and/or homes for the Olympic events and moved them into high rises that frown on having pets. Now these dogs that once had homes and families are being slaughtered by a pest control company so they do not bother the Olympic visitors. Too bad some people think civil rights is merely an agenda. Sad. Never take your rights for granted.

    Care to see a picture of dogs being boiled alive so people can eat them Don? I do not think you would call them dream meals if you could see their faces as they are being boiled to death.

    If you believe that is the same, fine. Those lobsters are dead almost as soon as they hit the water. I know I can not make you see boiling dogs alive to eat them is not a joke. You will be who you are and that's your prerogative.

    Because of this > "Dream meals"! << That's wasn't suppose to be funny? It's just how I thought you meant it to be, then.

    I've never heard the term. I Googled it and a dream meal calls for chicken. You've heard different though. You know what you know.

    I know all that. I'm heavily involved in the fight to end the dog meat and cat meat market in China. No, I will not be going there, ever. I have no interest in creepy people who think it's OK to boil dogs and cats alive because it makes the meat taste sweeter.

    It's not just me Don. There are thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people all over the world involved.

    I have to make a comment, China do not eat Dogs, where do you people get your information from. Colleen the eating or boiling of Dogs is practised in the Phillipines. you cannot go by propaganda seen on you tube, as far as the Olympics go, it's a sport event not a political football - as for me i am enjoying the live coverage.

    I'm not watching youtube BM. I know people in China and they do say it is happening. Now you can believe the propaganda that it is not happening but in sections of China it is happening and some of the Chinese are fighting it. They are barricading roads, stopping trucks filled with dogs and taking the dogs. It's a real fight and they are working hard to get their government to step into the fight more.

    It was not as impressive to me as many of the other Olympic Opening Ceremonies have been. I watch all the Olympics no matter which country is holding them and regardless of all the agendas being promoted by various groups, looking for "rights". Someone is always pushing their beliefs and that gets tiring but I'm there to watch the athletes perform. I love and admire their dedication!

    Not a patch on London & yet more expensive.

    I did not watch, and only catch some events, curling, and speed skating are favorites of mine.
