I totally agree. It was spectacular. Artistic Theatre - The Ballet, Highly Creative and Avantgarde Artistry between the transitional eras, while keeping the political History subtle and innovative in its execution. Superb in Composition and Performance!!!!

I think it is one of the best Opening Ceremonies I have ever seen.

I think the trashing by some American Media is sad, immature and classless.

Poor Sportsmanship. And certainly displays little or no appreciation for or understanding of The Classical Arts.

The Message throughout The Ceremony was one of Light, Hope and Peace ... Beautiful.

Somehow American Media missed it.
Only thing they appeared to "fixate" on was the one technical glitch. Petty. Jealous? Perhaps. All they can comprehend IS tacky Hollywood trickery.

The whole point of the games is goodwill

I feel that America is trashing Russia because they need to divert attention from our failing economy.

And this anti gay stuff is complete bs
If someone tried to go to Texas and preach gay marriage at an elementary school , you would have a much harsher reaction than a fine.

And people who say those terrorist feminists
We're treated heavy handed , I'd like to see how they would be treated in Saudi Arabia our great American ally that we never speak up against their human rights

Remember , when the French Revolution happened every king in Europe attacked France because they didn't want any part of democracy spreading to their countries . What is America afraid of Russia for
