The Opening Ceremony is virtually the only #Olympic event that #NBC isn't streaming online, a decision made to bolster its prime-time broadcast.

Large-scale pageantry opened the #Sochi Olympics on Friday, in a symbolically rich Opening Ceremony that was marred by an early and highly visible mistake — one of five massive #OlympicRings failed to fully appear.

There were many other elements of the program to distract the estimated 3 billion people worldwide who watched the ceremony at Sochi's Fisht Stadium, with striking visuals that celebrated Russia's history and culture. But the ring failure will surely remain a subject of conversation.
