I LOVED to watch the Olympics! The athletes were amazing, China was beautiful to see, and it was very entertaining! I just have one complaint. I thought that it was a GREAT idea to call it the "Green Olympics", in fact I was very excited about it; however, did anyone notice that not much was being said in the way of "Green Awareness"? I mean seriously, we have the worlds stage, millions of viewers, and no real Shout outs to "Going Green". I was excited when I heard that it would be known as "Green", it would be like a little birdie talking in all the viewers households about green issues. I know that the Olympics is about sports, but I also think that more commercials and news clips could have been geared toward the global issues.
