I TiVoed it, since I had my main Fantasy Football draft. This is actually a good thing, as I could skip the commercials and the talking heads.
I’ll admit it, I got a little teary eyed. Ted Kennedy, Michelle Obama. Both knocked it out of the park.
Whatever you think of Ted Kennedy, showing up and giving a speech was fucking amazing. Dude has brain cancer and shows up to hand the torch off to Barack. Wow.
Michelle, wow, as much of an inspirational speaker as her husband, and the kids…well that was just icing on the cavity inducing cake.
The stage design, as an A/V geek, the stage design is fuckin’ incredible. Kudos to the designer. All in all from what I saw, a very, very successful Day One.
