Vladimir Putin was enraged that the Ukrainians won the archery event, while the Russians only snagged the bronze. So he began plotting the invasion of Crimea forthwith. Some people just want to watch the world burn, you know.

0) WTF is the OP even talking about???

1) There's been a track record since '36 that any non-democratic regime hosting the Olympics will be overthrown in around ten years' time from the Games...I wonder if China will also finally ("finally" 'cause people have been predicting it for literally decades now) fail??

2) Speaking of '36: that was the first televised sports event or something...'08 was the first to be recorded in HD video -- but why isn't the HD video ever available????? I've even asked this question on a dedicated AV/HT forum to no response!!

The suspense is killing me OP!

You know this has got to be good if the dudes user name is the same as his thread title! That's dedication to a topic.

NBC made available for sale a DVD of the 2008 opening ceremony, though I don't recall if that DVD was in HD or not.
