Bird's Nest Incredible

Remember I asked you about this photo? Well here's the answer. Of course our resident bloggy smarty pants, At Home With the Farmer's Wife and Life in Red Shoes guessed it correctly. Way to go girls! Sorry, no gold medal. Now, feast your eyes on this pictorial from Beijing. How can you not be completely in awe? How will Canada beat this in 2010? (They need to hire me.)

Wow, I can't tell you how excited I am to be considered a smarty pants. But, technically I was wrong. I said it was the drummers and these guys are playing some kind of xylophone. I must have left the room when these guys came on.

Well, what can I say about how Canada should keep up with these Joneses? You shouldn't. You should just be your great Canadian selves.

Anyway, the last photo in the pictorial in the link says it all. The gigantic splash in Beijing belies the poverty and problems in the countryside. A ridiculous amount of resources were funneled into these games.

Canadians will put on a great show. I have no doubt.
