Team USA's "Celebration of Light" Performance . . . .
Last evening it was Team USA's turn to "wow" the crowds with their expertise.
"drf" and I were surprised to find out that this was the first time in the 18-year history of the competition for the US to compete. (Maybe they waited 'til we got our Permanent Resident status?) Whatever the reason, they did an excellent job, and we much preferred their show to Team Canada's - not a good statement for us as "newbie" Canadians, is it? Based on our unscientific survey, though, we are in a minority on this. Most folks preferred the Canadian show. Different strokes, I guess.
The folks from Oklahoma used a lot more blues (quite difficult to produce) and some of their displays were incredibly high in the sky. Here is a good description of what goes into making the "big bangs" if you would like more info.
China is at bat on Wednesday night, and you can bet we'll be there.
It's a 5-minute walk to all the action, why would we miss it ? ? ? ?
