  1. ^^I thought the report said the Maracanazinho didn't need any renovations or upgrades?
  2. Stop. The Maracana Stadium was built in 1950. What if I made the statement "I don't like you" because you harassed me? And I have put users on the ignore list because the harassment wouldn't stop? And during the reconstruction of Hotel Gloria, there's concrete being ripped apart, and rebar flying everywhere.
  3. Baron, I thought I said "Stop with the YouTube videos", that's part of the harassment, which is all over with. Now let's please talk about something else and get back on topic, like: the Improvement of the train station above the Maracana Stadium. and How the Maracanazinho arena doesn't need any major improvement before the 2016 Olympics?
  4. Hate to double-post, but Danny, I will ask you to please not post that song, because I don't want to see it.
  5. ^^Mo/Rafa, stop telling people to "go away" for no reason.
  6. Danny, I'm sorry, I just want you to stop the "seem"-related harassment also before I go crazy. Can't you write a song about a different subject NOT containing the words that so offends me? If you can't, then don't write any songs at all. You done forgot who we all are: Olympic fans. I just wanted to visit Rio for the 2016 Games, not be driven to some sad fate several years before it. Danny, when you drive folks to harassment, you drive them towards some sad fate, and I don't want to say it, you're gonna end up getting punished for the harassment. So a note to you two: From now on, please, a t
  7. No, that opinion is a fact. I have an "obsession" with nothing. "Obsession" is a somewhat strong term.
  8. For the last time, the idea of holding Olympic ceremonies outside the Olympic Stadium is silly, but a petition to put the ceremonies out of Maracana and into the Joao Havelange is not. Even if I stopped the campaigns and petitions, you're still going to harass me. I know it. The definition of harassment is: "Harassment covers a wide range of offensive behaviour. It is commonly understood as behaviour intended to disturb or upset, and it is characteristically repetitive." hate to get off-topic, but Why is it that some word I don't like, you got to repeatedly sat it and force me to act and be
  9. ^^Well, I don't like it anymore. "Appears" sounds like a better term "mmmmm" anyway. You're doing it solely to harass me. Admit it.
  10. You're right. Only several celebrities who are diehard Olympic fans can afford 500+ room headquarters hotels for themselves to stay at during the Olympics. I may not be a celebrity, but several years ago, I joined this forum because I was an Olympic fan. And the Rio Olympic project updates don't really accelerate until after the London Games have been held. How is a city like Rio going to prepare itself for the Olympics in four years, much less seven? Only two years have passed, and Rio's entering its third year of preparation.
  11. ^^I mean it, please stop with the "seems" fixation, before you get yourselves in trouble. Don't even show me any youtube videos, nothing. I don't want this damnable harassment anymore!
  12. ^^For the last time, Stop saying "seems", Danny, please! We're not going back to this. Seriously. The words is making the experience unbearable for me.
  13. You better not start that bull again. Never say the phrase "$**** to" about me again". I mean it. I will get upset. And those aren't the IOC's headquarters hotels, they're my headquarters hotels.
  14. We don't want Moca Bonita Stadium as the rugby 7's venue, as it is not within either of the four venue clusters. I'll have to stick with Sao Januario.
  15. The Copacabana Palace, the Hotel Gloria, and Caesar Park are below the minimum requirement of 500 rooms. I looked at the bid book for this info.
  16. Here is a history of headquarters hotels since 1964: 1964 - Hotel New Otani 1968 - Sheraton Maria Isabel 1972 - Sheraton Munich Arabellapark 1976 - Le Reine Elizabeth (None for 1980 because of infamous boycott) 1984 - Westin Bonaventure 1988 - COEX InterContinental Seoul 1992 - Hotel Princesa Sofia 1996 - Westin Peachtree Plaza 2000 - Marriott Sydney Harbour 2004 - Hilton Athens (shared with the IOC) 2008 - China World Hotel 2012 - Millennium Gloucester (Remind me not to stay in the same hotel as the IOC members)
  17. Because the club owning it haven't set up a fire reconstruction plan, there are rumours going around that the Olympic rugby sevens tournament is being moved from the Sao Januario stadium to a smaller stadium. That's gonna suck eggs because a reconstruction of that venue was needed, especially for the Olympics.
  18. At the new Sambodromo, there are new stands at the west paralleling the existing stands at the east... except for the northernmost stand. Why that? Some three-storey building is in the way.
  19. ^^I don't think it ever snows in Tio de Janeiro, and the city does have a tropical climate (probably stays nearly the same temperature throughout the year), so that doesn't matter.
  20. New Maracana roof has my seal of approval.
  21. From now on, the intentional use of the word "seem" is banned. I am afraid of the word, and it gets annoying when used excessively. You won't hear it coming out of my mouth anymore.
  22. But the apology couldn't be any better than being forced to kiss the pedicured feet of a Rio carnaval/samba queen. Like, say... Luma de Oliveira?
