    Los Angeles 2028

    Can I get some of what you're smoking? Please don't tell me you *actually* think LA has the most hated sports teams in America. The Rams? The Chargers? Where do you come up with that crap. Maybe try talking to fan bases not in the immediate vicinity of LA and ask them who they hate. Let's actually look at this one. The Lakers I'll give you. Although they haven't made the playoffs in 6 years, so at this point there's not that much hatred for them. And that's after a year with LeBron. In MLB, the Yankees are #1 and the Red Sox are #2. The Dodgers? At best, a distant 3rd. They're now more than 30 years removed from their last World Series title. And in the NFL? There's the Patriots. And then the Patriots. Not even close to a contest. So the correct answer is Boston. And I don't just say that because I'm from New York. No one outside of this thread believes that LA is some sort of punching bag for the rest of the country (or the world) that has to deal with an unfair amount of negative press. Guess what.. that's every city. Let alone that it extends to their sports teams as if the Rams and Chargers are hated teams outside of St. Louis and San Diego. Stop trolling. All of you
  5. But Quaker thinks it’s just me. Even though every Angelino knows this.

    FIFA World Cup 2026

    I am still confused if the new NFL stadium in inglewood is going to host any games, it will be the best stadium in the country at that point, and will host LA2028 football games, however i dont see it on the list (i agree that MetLife should host the finals since LA hosted in 94)

    Los Angeles 2028

    I'm pretty sure if you ask a fan base of other teams of the major sports in america, our teams would be the most hated ones, Dodgers, Lakers, Rams, Chargers that's how we live here, with hatred from the rest of the country

    THIS. I can't think of any other city that has mastered the art of rolling with the punches. LA is a very resilient place which is ironic considering the stereotypes. When its not mother nature slamming it (Fires, earthquakes, landslides, floods), its negative headlines often at the hands of NY Times or the Bay Area. And you're right. It turns any press into profit. Positive, negative, it doesn't matter, it leverages it towards its advantage every single time.... and the world eat it up.

    Paris 2024

    1. We now know that one Paris landmark will NOT host the 2024 Olympic flame, even for one night. 2. If breakdancing will be a regular Olympic sport for 2024, should Bell-ringing, open only to h___backs, be the new Paralympic event for 2024?

    England 2030

    It’s a great looking ground, fair play. Better than ours (but then, you are 10 years after, spent nearly £1b on it, & needed to build it to NFL levels, so it should be). Particularly love that south end, the uniform unbroken tiers are the big problem with Emirates (& Wembley) when it comes to getting some noise up. Congrats on that amazing game last night too - North London Derby for the Super Cup?

    I mean, I would've been perfectly happy to start a brand new thread with a post about our new stadium, but this thread'll do for world cup bid posts till we get an official announcement that the UK/Ireland bid is happening.

    Your Favo(u)rite Olympic Tv Commercials

    Network Ten Australia and Virgin Video promoted this 1988 Australian Seoul Olympics video entitled Hand in Hand (after the theme song) after the conclusion of these Games that Australians would order by phone through mail order that was under A$30 before shipping and handling. They can relive all the top Aussie Olympic moments like Duncan Armstrong, the Hockeyroos, and Debbie Flintoff-King plus the disappointments on the Aussie team with everything else general culled from Ten's massive coverage that had more TV hours than even NBC for being on nearly 24 hours a day. Actually have a copy of this bought from Ebay years ago but still don't have a VCR that can convert with PAL and SECAM along with playing NTSC. This was of course before the financial collapse of what was to come for Ten soon afterwards from its last Summer Olympics presentation here... The recently retired Lizzie Yarnold, one of Britain's most successful Winter Olympians, explains why she swears off tuna during her early days in transitioning to skeleton in a world of more experienced skeleton racers around her who were lighter and smaller than her in this Toyota Team GB commercial from last year. Filmed just before successfully defending her gold in skeleton

    Your Favo(u)rite Olympic Tv Commercials

    Going back into it after several months away. Following is a series of Canadian Olympic-themed TV commercials that aired during the CBC's Nagano 1998 coverage. We get a couple of Chrysler Canada commercials with the first one dealing with a couple, Doug and Kathy, loading things in their Dodge Caravan minivan in record time; a Japanese girl watches a Japanese banner from the Canadian Olympic Committee becomes animated with all the caligraphy becoming a downhill skiing event to her delight from the Home Depot; from Coca-Cola comes an emphasis on "red is the colour" in the sights, reactions, and sounds of a nondescript hockey game (looks like a Detroit Red Wings game at Joe Louis Arena judging from the architecture minus the licensing issues); UPS profiles "those adorable darling Snowlet mascots" becoming a global sensation in their commercial with distributors coping with high demand to need UPS; a very 1990s Always Coca-Cola commercial saluting and cheering Team Canada in Nagano for its long-running and diverse Always Coca-Cola campaign during that decade; Visa encourages people to exclusively use Visa cards if you wanted to check out the most competitive men's hockey ever at the time using NHL stars and the first women's Olympic hockey in Nagano; and 4 men rushing from accounting rushing bobsled-style late to a meeting in their 1998 Chrysler Neon but still making it on time: More South Korea into the mix with this more recent commercial coming when it hosted last year's Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics. Easy for me to select this given the fact that this contains English subtitles despite being on South Korean TV from the likes of SBS, KBS, and MBC. Here we have short track star Choi Min-Jeong for KT (Korea Telecom) ready to race and her narrating this commercial juxtaposing being an "unsurpassable" front-runner battling for victory on the ice skating for glory with leading the way in gamechanging 5G technology competition in celebrating the world's first Olympic 5G demo usage network as that Olympics' official communications partner. Choi's Olympic campaign was a little mixed: won gold in the 1500m race after getting penalized for interference in the women's 500m final that Italy's Arianna Fontana won despite setting a new Olympic record there she still holds. She also won Gold in the 3000m Relay. But in the 1000m Finals, she collided with another South Korean skater in Shim Suk-Hee and crashed, ultimately finishing 4th:

    They better hurry up. 2019 + 5 = 2024. Even more important that the Eiffel its presence is necessary at the 2024 Games.

    Paris 2024

    I would think they would want to put some skylights (and sprinklers) in there and therefore make the famous Rose windows shine even more brilliantly whether viewed from the inside or out. They should ask Dan Brown. He might set his THE DA VINCI CODE 2 in the new Notre Dame.

    Paris 2024

    I doubt they will just do it like it was before. Read today that in Cologne, the original wooden roof was replaced by an iron construction when the Cathedral was finally finished in the 19th century, which helped it to avoid even more destruction in WW2. So there’s surely aesthetically good solutions which are fire-proof available.

    Paris 2024

    I know people like the idea of rebuilding it exactly as it was, but given just how close a shave it was surely there's a case for rebuilding the hidden structural elements with less flammable, modern materials whilst still retaining the external aesthetics. Is putting a huge stack of wood on top of it once again really the best idea?
  26. baron-pierreIV

    Paris 2024

    I got Manny's number. We are on the same wavelength. I think putting up a new roof WITH sprinklers I guess, should be easy enough to set up. And they will have to find ingenious ways to hide little reservoirs/water tanks in the upper parts of the structure to hold reserve water. And then they will have to water- and fireproof everything below that now. NO MORE CANDLES in Notre Dame and ALL THE CHURCHES in Chirstendom.

    Apart from of the less serious parts of your post, Macron has heard you: He wants to have everything rebuilt within five years.
