Proud to be an Aussie is how it feels watching the telecast of the
Opening Ceremony at the Torino Winter Olympics 2006.
The man behind the stupendous extravaganza is Ric Birch.
An Aussie boy with a vivid imagination, sensational flair with other
people's money and the talent to make it all work. What a genius!
Adored the 80s discomania belting out as the teams came out - where
was the mirror ball! Memories of Patches and other night spots of
the era came flooding back!
And to top it all - 8 Women carrying the Olympic flag!
On with the games - Onya Rich Birch!
Oi, Oi, Oi!
