The Opening Ceremony Kicks Off With a Slight Snowflake Malfunction
The opening ceremony went down in Sochi Friday, and the spectacle celebrating Russia and the Olympic spirit was an impressive feat. But it didn't go off without one hitch: a slight snowflake malfunction. There were five that were supposed to turn into the Olympic rings, but one stubborn flake just didn't want to burst. If you're wondering what the Russians made of it, many might not even know about the slipup. Russian TV cut to footage from the rehearsal, which made it look like everything went according to plan. To be fair, China showed prerecorded fireworks during the Beijing kick off.
