  1. well, Zits-u-know-who made his world debut instead! Kinda equals Avril's upcoming gig for Vankoofuh. Baron, it will be interesting on how Rogge will say "Vancouver" in his Torino 2006 closing ceremony speech. Some of us did made fun of his accent then, when he announced the city as the winner back in July 2003. Are accent not acceptable anymore? :rock: He's Belgian. Give him a break. Hey. I didn't mind it.

  3. Oh, boy. :wwww: First, she got to do that IOC commercial for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. Now, this.
  4. I haven't really caught up with which venue is where for Beijing 2008. Where is it in relation to the "nest?" By the way it looks, it could be a "training venue", right? Well, I will most likely to see it on TV, when the time comes to see it.
  5. Since the last post here and with 4 weeks to go before the Torino 2006 opening ceremony, FOUR Torino 2006 Olympic torches were successfully sold in eBay. The high range has been extended to US$1,822. (By the way, that Torino 2006 Olympic torch that had a very low starting price, the final sale price ended up in the usual price range.)
  6. That makes sense now. I guess that the usual stadium in Beijing will host the IAAF World Junior Athletics Championships. I forgot what the name is, but I know it has to be that one.
  7. Chances are good that the "Lethern" flag will make its presence known at the Torino 2006 closing ceremony to me in some way.
  8. With one month to go before the Torino 2006 Games begin, will there be any changes to the forums site?
  9. i haven't known this by now. It said that will be a big international event or games of track and field. Well, Xu, the "nest" better be finished before August of this year, if this is going to be true. Why? You said about a track and field championship. Believe it or not: it is. Beijing is supposed to host the 2006 IAAF World Junior Athletics Championships in August.
  10. I think it has been mentioned, but Xu, once the stadium is finished, what will be held first there before the Olympic Games?
  11. I hope these venues are built well. I really don't know why the BBC at the time made somewhat a big deal about a road collapse in the Chinese capital recently.
  12. When will the whole team go to Torino to rehearse their show? Since the stadium at Torino will only be used for the Olympic ceremonies, it shouldn't be too difficult to prepare to go there and get some practicing going.
  13. Well, GBModerator, now that the year 2006 has arrived at your part of the world, I think it is time to update your copyright information for this website. ::
  14. Correction from initial post made here. I'm seeing it now! I can't believe it! What is this person thinking?? ??? Baron, at this time, it is at the US$12 mark. Also, 9 bids have been made so far here. As well, there are 2 other ones on sale at this time. For those interested in getting to see what other Torino 2006 Olympic torches and related items that may interest you in eBay, I'll post this link: Link Of course, it will depend on where you are and if they are available to you by the seller in question.
  15. Well, the sales that occurred have been impressive. Ranges of final sales for the Torino 2006 Olympic torches so far go from US$1,196 to US$1,425. And, yes, the number of bids seen has been as high as 50 for one of them.
  16. Correction from initial post made here. I'm seeing it now! I can't believe it! What is this person thinking?? ???
  17. I think the chief reason for it right now is the way the Torino 2006 Olympic torches have been going through at this time. All the ones that have been in eBay so far, including the ones that I couldn't put links here for some reason, have been USED in the relay so far. It is more likely that the ones that have NOT BEEN USED, which there will be some in eBay in the near future, are being "put on hold" at this time. Of course, it is by chance on how the Olympic torches of the past will be on sale and who is willing to buy them. Besides, I have seen cases of Olympic torches in the past being sold "at lower prices." So, I wouldn't worry about the perceived lower prices of the Athens 2004 ones yet. I'm sure that it will pick up eventually.
  18. It should be one of the show venues of London 2012, but will it be ready in time for the 2006 FA Cup final? Constructor Admits Wembley Doubts
  19. My hearing needs real checking. Did I hear correctly from a news source that at least one venue for Beijing 2008 is finished NOW?
  20. This picture kind of reminds me of the beginning sequence of the Sydney 2000 opening ceremony, where they did use horses to make the Olympic Rings. However, that was then and this is what may come up. I don't expect anything fancy in the presentation, but it wouldn't cross my mind if we end up having to see them again.
  21. Oh, well, he is trying again to sell it, but with the other ones being sold at lower prices, he may be holding on to it again.
  22. All the more reason I want to see how it will turn out over there at Torino. Of course, the flag hand-over ceremony to mayor Sullivan and the rendition of the Canadian national anthem, too, to some of us.
  23. I like the logo. And, speaking of Dr. Jackson, he is really busy lately. However, he has great credentials behind his name, when it comes to the Olympic Games.
  24. Have $2,500 US to spare? There is another Torino 2006 Olympic torch for sale, but it seems that the link I'm trying to post here doesn't seem to want to work here. Starting price: $1,400 US.
