Winter Olympics Get Underway With Opening Ceremonies

The 2022 Winter Olympics are officially underway, with the Opening Ceremonies kicking off Friday morning from Beijing. A live crowd is in attendance for the ceremony, but it’s quieter than usual – Chinese officials have ordered spectators to clap, rather than cheer, due to COVID-19 concerns. That’s not ice the athletes are walking on – it’s an illusion created by 125,000 square feet of LED screens making up the floor of Beijing’s National Stadium.

If you didn’t wake up early to watch it live, don’t worry – NBC will rebroadcast the ceremony tonight starting at 8pm EST.

What Olympic events are you most excited to see?  Do you typically watch the opening ceremonies?
