Did anyone else forget their pre-Olympics closing ceremonies LSD hit tonight?
Dancing Mounties, a live hockey puck, Canadian hockey players, Michael Buble, ladies in maple leafs…..and that even all kinda makes sense. Except in the Chicken household there is a question as to whether the Mounties were actually Mounties or paid Mountie impersonators. B says that no way were they real mounties because real mounties would not be caught dead dancing around on ice. Because mounties are real men. Chicken thinks they were bad enough dancers that they probably had day jobs. Possibly as mounties.
But then add in people in canoes, huge helium beavers, and huge other helium animal-type characters with wings and fish lips. What were those?
On the positive side. Neil Young was a classy, nostalgic start to the show. The song title strikes a chord much as an Irish blessing might. “Long may you run, Long may you run, Although these changes have come, with your chrome heart shining in the sun, long may you run….”
It was very nice even if the song is about a car.
And Michael J. Fox. Who doesn’t love him? Long may he run.
If anyone knows what the flyingfish lip balloons were supposed to be please fill me in.
