Plus then the closing ceremonies would probably have been about 6 hours long. What with the 3 hour concert in the middle. Which would have been awesome.

I'm sure a lot of the bigger acts wanted money that VANOC wasn't about to dish out. I know Celine is trying to get pregnant or something and turned down the invitation to perform at the opening ceremonies.

Hedley was actually my brother in-laws locker mate when they were in high school about a decade ago. I don't think an act as "small" as him gets a nod to something like that without bigger acts turning it down however.

And then they rolled out Shatner.

Is there anybody less relevant than that guy? I only listened for like two seconds, but WTF? Cap'n Kirk was a re-run in the 80's - what the hell is he doing up there now? Maybe the Sham-Wow guy was booked?

Reminds me of how the Ruskies refused help when their boomer sank. I'm sure some of our Hollywood folks would have been glad to help. \:D

Captain Quirk? He just keeps showing up. Didn't he just get cast in yet another series?

Yeah, we were SO wanting one of the American Idol runner-ups or one of the many "talented" BET rappers \:D .

What's wrong with the Sham Wow guy? SLAP CHOP!!
Half of communication is listening. You can't listen with your mouth.

Yes. Believe it or not, he'll be playing the father in a pilot for a TV series based on a 29 year-old's Twitter account, with which he shares real quotes of his 73 year-old father's wisdom.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

That is just wrong.
