  1. Russia will remain wholly banned. Why would that be any different?
  2. Ironic that the games that had to be postponed were the ones that were actually ready to be on time.
  3. The postponement is an opportunity to rethink whatever was planned for the opening ceremony, and hopefully we'll see something relevant to the pandemic, and an informal declaration of "victory" over the virus in the ceremony of 2021. You can bet the last thing I want to see is yet another dated message about nuclear proliferation. Especially when the idea is always so mistakenly extrapolated to nuclear energy generation, which will always be necessary to have.
  4. There is no "lockdown" or declared state of emergency in Tokyo.
  5. I wonder what NBC would say about a Fall olympics.
  6. Abe will make a declaration on the 13th about things going forward, we will have a much better idea of what measures take place in the coming months. He should have authority to declare state of emergency at this point.
  7. They can only show so much in a ceremony. And in the case of Japan, there's so much to work with. I myself got treated to Ainu folk performances while in Hokkaido. Also, my attention was brought to the Golden Kamui manga at the place I was staying. There is a lot of appreciation for Ainu culture in Northern Japan. So maybe they can save it for when the Winter olympics return to Sapporo.
  8. I had a good look at the official merch featuring characters, and I started to question if everything being used to highlight the pop culture is intended to have a worldwide appeal, or just things the Japanese will recognize while the rest of us are scratching our heads.
  9. Downright farcical. I wonder what bullshit excuse they come up in 2032 to make the US march last. For now, IOC has ruined spirit of the parade is ruined and I can't think of a worse disrespect to foreign languages and their alphabets.
  10. They're going to have to redo the venue PR video for the 3rd time /facepalm
  11. Transport would be free for ticket holders? That's news to me.
  12. I wholeheartedly disagree, but since L.A. did it first I wouldn't mind if we see jetpacks again in the next L.A. games. And you don't need to tell me it's technically not a jetpack. I know and the concept is still the same.
  13. Ugh, terrible. That crap has been beaten to death and legitimately the last thing I want to see at the OC. I really don't feel like being preached or talked down to. I've had enough of that crap already.
  14. What the heck is a "stadium-theater" director, and why do you think anyone in the opening event committee would benefit from consulting some Chinese dude? You realize this is the TOKYO Olympics, right? I'm assuming the British didn't feel any need to consult any Chinese dude for their own thing, did they? So why bring up Chinese dudes now?
