2008 Olympics begin today in Beijing, China

Even google is getting into olympic spirit with special logo The opening ceremony will begin today at 5:30 PM Indian time. It will be broadcast live from National Stadium in Beijing.

I just bought a Samsung 40 inch flat screen TV to watch the Olympic games. Sadly there are no HDTV providers in India at the moment so I will have to do with tata sky.

The program will be aired on DD sports and DD national. Its sad none of the top sports channels like espn and star sports get to cover the Olympics in India and we will have to endure doordarshan's crappy coverage.

Hopefully this years games will be exciting and India will be able to get more than one Gold medal.

It will also be interesting to see how many games will be interrupted by protesters from Tibet and Human Rights groups.
