  1. Another small earthquake... God, why don't you just leave us alone?

      Citius Altius Fortius

      I heard it on the radio - I hope you, your family and your friends are alright!

      Sorry for not answering...

      Yes, everyone is fine. It wasn't huge to be honest. Just 7.0 Richter. I was in a 7th floor so it was a bit stronger than I usually feel... but it was weird, it was more like a wave, i felt a bit dizzy...

  2. ¡Feliz Navidad a todos! Merry Christmas everyone!

  3. Colombia announced they will bid for 2026... but Argentina/Uruguay have the official support of CONMEBOL for 2030 so it will be a bit contradictory to have both bids at the same time (but football organizations and consistency are not related usually, so don't worry). There are some calls about a Chilean bid, but I think after Qatar there is no way we could bid. So I think it will be a battle between US-Colombia-¿Canada?. Mexico could bid but if Colombia enters, they will get the Latin support instead of Mexico.
  4. for me, Chilean football is dead. I hope we finish last in next qualifiers.

  5. Blatter almost said that he want the WC to be hosted in Bolivia for 2014 and the other day was asking Chile to step in the race... he usually says the same in every single country...
  6. I'm so sad the Olympic Games ended for me in a different way... a little bit shaken... but anyways, I watched a lot of the Games on TVN (they made a summary every afternoon) and somedays on ESPN+. And I have to say, Vancouver Games were incredible... congratulations to all of you, Canadians!!!
  7. Scott Lago... stupid, but really hot... My fav is Brian Joubert... hot hot hot... and then Stephane Lambiert. I've seen some good looking alpine guys but I don't remember their names...
  8. ESPN+ was terrible. First of all, the guys were talking all the time about anything and nothing related to the ceremony. They started to talk how beauty Nikki was and how her dress was too short for winter while Rogge and the GG entered the stadium... I couldn't even heard the Vice-Regal March or anything that happened later. Then, in the Cultural section, they were mute for almost an hour. I understand some English so I tried to translate to my family but it was very difficult... nobody understood what was going on... And finally, they were supposed to be an international broadcaster... but they were totally Argentinean-biased. Everything they were talking was about something related to ARG. When Chile entered the stadium, they started to talk about how Chilean athlets train in Argentinean ski centers (???) and they didn't mentioned the number of athlets nor the flagbearer. Colombia was totally omitted and there were just two words for Peru in its inaugural parade. Extremely disappointed...
  9. I'm really shocked by the news... it's so sad a guy so young lost his live in this way. I know accidents can happen... and that it's a dangerous sport but there must be an investigation and suspend the luge competition until everything is clear and better safety measures could be enforced.
  10. The Chilean flag bearer will be Jorge "Coke" Mandrú (Alpine Skiing)
  11. Terra.com.ve is supposed to have the rights of online broadcasting in Latin America. And also, ESPN+ will have the live broadcast at least in Chile...
  12. I know TVN and Canal 13 has the rights... but they seem like nothing is happening. Today, Canal 13 announced they will broadcast everynight a summary of the WOG at 2.00 am! WTF! and TVN haven't said anything and at the time of the OC they will show the movie "Zodiac" like someone cares about it. At least, ESPN will do their work (the Opening Ceremony will be broadcasted live on ESPN+ ) and also will Terra.cl... but it's a shame the largest TV companies haven't done anything...
  13. Chile will send just three athletes to Vancouver 2010. I'm extremly disappointed... it's one of the smallest delegation to any kind of Games, only surpassing the 2 athletes in Antwerp 1920, and like the delegations to Nagano 1998, Lillehammer 1994 and Oslo 1952. It's a third of the delegation to Torino! Damn... and it seems the Games won't be broadcasted
  14. I have the same problem here in Chile... and it did happen in Torino 2006. I couldn't watch the Opening because no TV channel broadcasted. I've seen that ESPN will broadcast the Games but I don't know if they will broadcast the ceremonies. I'm so upset with Chile sending just three athletes, so the channels not broadcasting the ceremonies would be the icing of the cake
  15. A proposal about a HST between Santiago and Valparaíso is been studied in Chile. I don't think this is feasible but according to the newspaper, 60% of the income will come from the cargo service instead of the traditional services to passengers.
  16. nice!!! Congratulations to Toronto!! Totally deserved Games after an amazing bid So I guess 2019 will be a new battle between South American cities... Lima, Bogotá... and I hope Santiago after the South American Games 2014 and Copa América 2015
  17. Although the best friend of Chile is Canada at this moment, certainly they will vote for Lima or Bogotá. Chile will try to keep the friendship of Peru and Colombia, especially now we're pursuing Copa América 2015. Peruvian and Chilean relationships are in their worst state in the last years but is possible that Chile could send a message of goodwill supporting Peru... and the relations with Colombia are good, probably the only country in SA that they could consider as a friend (with Brazil).
  18. I support also Toronto 2015... because I wanna see 2019 as a competition between South American countries: Bogotá, Lima, Caracas... and I hope Santiago
  19. Brazil was terrible in the match against Argentina... Now... go Nigeria!
  20. Yeah, right... González was a cheater and Blake losing three match points was his fault also... ¬¬ The problem was the umpire... it wasn't Gonzalez's work to say if a point is right or wrong. Besides, I don't think Blake or any other tennis player would say "Umpire, you're wrong...". No one would say that his ball went out if it is counted as in, etc, etc...
  21. Congratulations to Nadal... he deserved to win. I prefer not to see the match... usually when I see a match like this, Gonzalez lose... I think I bring him bad luck. Anyway, he lost but it was a great accomplishment for Chilean sport
  22. Well... I hope to hear mine tomorrow Although, the rendition of the Chilean anthem in Athens was awkward... it was great but the song was cut in the highest moment of the chorus :s
  23. The fourth Gonzalez and Massu won the gold in doubles last Olympics, while both won medals in singles (bronze and gold). We are so happy... I was at a disco celebrating Madonna's birthday (lol) and then the travesti that was performing said "Gonzalez won the second set in tiebreak" and everybody started singing and then we went home... it was like 5 am and everybody in downtown were returning home to see the third match. I arrived and they were 3/3 and I was so nervous so I prefered to don't see the match... but I woke up when everybody in the building shouted when Gonzalez won... amazing! Gonzalez loves to play incredible long matches, hahaha... Nadal defeated Djokovic minutes ago... I prefered Novak
  24. Damn it! When I went to bed, the Chilean was leading. When I woke up, he retired ¬¬ Anyway, congratulations to Spain
