  1. Oh no, we're in again for a debate about Paris stealing LA's image.... It's just a "dégradé" of orange and yellow, like there is on the Paris 2024 bid logo.

  2. You guys are finding even the most obscure, inconsequential ceremonies. WHO NEEDS THOSE? Post only the real major ones of consequence -- not the Frisbee National championships, etc.. etc. Jeez, be MORE DISCRIMINATING.

  4. Don't hold your breath. As Bach said, whoever get the 2028 Olympics, that's a "gift" in itself. So no further "concessions" (or to use your description - "silver platter") are needed, lmfao.

  5. That is so funny I am at the Eiffel Tower for the Bastille Day fireworks. And guess what, the music played during the fireworks is "Olympic fanfare and theme" by John Williams.

  6. And I (& others for that matter) never said an L.A. bid is bad, either. But yet you (& your gal pal) always incorrectly claim that I (& others) are always "bashing" L.A. & are "anti-L.A." & yada, yada.

  7. Exactly. And basically, if this is the US turn, not only Paris should drop out, but also Rome and Budapest. I find it extremely surprising though that some "IOC insiders" would say such a thing. Has it ever happened before, and did it turn out true? Would the IOC be mad enough to rule out European bids after 2022? Do the IOC really want to say "**** off" to Europe right now?

  8. Well I have to say France did surprise me a lot! No gold medalists from 2012 (apart from Teddy Riner) got gold again. And yet, we managed to get 42 medals, which is the highest we've ever had since the end of the war. So we bascially had medals where we didn't expect them. And with the start of the Games, which was quite bad, we didn't expect that at all. I'm very proud of Team France!

  9. Virginia Raggi bas been elected mayor of Rome. I suppose this is bad news for Rome's bid.
