Olympic Opening Ceremonies

The Winter Olympics are here once again. It's always great to see all of the nations participating marching in the opening ceremonies. For a small moment, the world comes together. It was strange tonight, however, to see the Iranian team marching. Of course the fact that country is becoming a pariah is not the athletes fault, but as they marched they did seem like the naughty little brother at the dinner table, almost unwelcome at an the event. It makes you wonder what will transpire before the China games in 2008 and if they will be marching then.
