In case you've been hiding under a rock (or just don't get all gushy about this Olympic stuff), the major piece of information you need to know is that there was a hydraulic malfunction during the lighting of the cauldron in Vancouver last Friday night. As a result, only three of four "pillars"--one for each of the final four torch bearers, designed to allow all of them to help light the cauldron--rose up from the floor. The show went on after an awkward two-minute vamp.
