      That's awesome! I hope you enjoy this experience of a lifetime :)

      Nice one. And yeah, pics when you've done it!

      Thanks! The flame comes to town next sunday. I'll post something about the experience later.

  2. Stand by Me, by Florence and the Machine as a Final Fantasy theme is a VERY odd choice.

  3. Batman v Superman is not half bad... I don't get the hate

      I thought they did a good job in M.O.S. regarding this. I struggle more with Bruce/Batman. Spoiled little prick.

      how can batman even compare to the power of superman...i just don't get it. and can't stand Mr. Lopez much......i think i might skip it.

      I feel they somewhat cheated on us with so many dream sequences, plus somewhat portraying both Batman and Superman out of character (seriously I thought the trend for edgy superhero movies was already over). Batman using weapons and killing people like nothing is a big no-no.

  4. And I was thinking I'd never get a ticket to the Opening Ceremony

      You're right. Singapore was impressive. And it was today. All over the place, a nightmare.

      Oh yeah, Lillehammer ceremony was terrible. You can tell they didn't cared at all for it. Then again why wasting money on an irrelevant event no one cares about. I don't blame Norway.

      I'm afraid all YOG are a joke by now. It started like it was going to be sth serious but the downgrading has been outrageous. Just taking a look at the sports program you can tell... today I read some events of Buenos Aires '18 will be chosen in online polls (?)

  6. America the Beautiful is much better than The Star Sprangled Banner.

  7. These boards are as doomed as Boston's bid.

      I have no idea. This feels like a TV show with that 'monster-of-the-week' trope.

    3. Ikarus360

      Ikarus360

      Does this monster also grows so large we'll have to call for a giant robot to fight it off?

    4. JMarkSnow2012

      It also feels like a TV show along the lines of "Candid Camera" ;-)

  8. A Tokyo 2020 thread would be nice...

    1. phandrosis

      phandrosis

      I remember requesting this a while ago, and was told a not-bid thread wont be made until Rio is over.

    2. Victor Mata

      Victor Mata

      Well, PyeongChang 2018 is here for quite a while, isn't it?

    3. phandrosis

      phandrosis

      Oh yeah, there are threads there from before Sochi. In that case i have no idea why there isn't a Tokyo thread (wink wink nudge nudge mods)

  9. See ya, Chile! Bring on Toronto 2015!

  10. Well done, Chile!

      La Maldición de Tilcara es real, no hay duda. Lo siento por Messi.

    3. LDOG

      LDOG

      I'm more sad for Messi than for the team. He's already being destroyed by everyone, fans and press. I seriouly think he may quit the NT now.

  11. Wow! Chileans are VERY pissed at Copa America and Bachelet.

    1. Roger87

      Roger87

      The Chileans are complicated to understand.

  12. Caitlyn Jenner should be invited to carry the olympic flag into the stadium next year...

      The reaction to this in the US has really been positive. So not sure why you say the reaction has been horrible. It would probably be worse if she carried the flag.

    3. Victor Mata

      Victor Mata

      Some 10.000 people signed an online petition to strip her of the 1976 gold. And even here at the boards...

    4. JMarkSnow2012

      JMarkSnow2012

      Admittedly it's unfortunate that she's a semi-Kardashian, but yes, as an Olympian and a champion for tolerance, she'd be a fine choice.

  13. **** Asterisks. That is all.

    1. Rob.

      Rob.

      Ho ******* ho

  14. Anyone's got indications of american or canadian authors (prose and poetry)?

  15. My full support to the teachers from Paraná, São Paulo and Goiás against the murderous brazilian police!

  16. 20 years of Chrono Trigger today :)

      The definition of perfection is that game.

      Couldn't agree more, brother.

  17. Where are all the funny/witty status updates lately?

  18. Rio 2016 may propose Manaus as a football venue. Deal with it, World.

      Rob.

      And bullshit from the Brazilian media deliberately misquoting teams' managers I guess (btw, Team GB won't have a football team at Rio)

    3. DannyelBrazil

      DannyelBrazil

      I must say you're right Rob.

    4. Rob.

      Rob.

      I'm always right Danny, you should know this by now! :)

  19. The torch will be white and nothing like the torch relay brand, says an official.

      Maybe some journalists thought it would be purple

    3. BR2028

      BR2028

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most torches white or silver?

  20. "Epic is On" - is that Toronto 2015 motto or what?

    1. intoronto

      intoronto

      Nope, its United We Play

  21. The district government in Brasilia gives up on the 2019 Universidade. Why I'm not surprised?

  22. The Rio 2016 mascots answer you personally if you send them messages via facebook and twitter :D

    1. Palette86

      Palette86

      Wow they are like soyoshi!They have heart and they speak,amazing mascots.I think someone of Brazilian organizing committee read the whole story of my yoshis.

    2. Victor Mata

      Victor Mata

      The mascots have lots of humour on their official pages!! The committee is doing a good work in bringing them closer to the public. BTW, Yoshi would be THE PERFECT mascot for Tokyo, wouldn't he?

    3. Palette86

      Palette86

      I think he would be.

      But he says he's small and he has no knowledge about Olympic.So maybe next game in the future!

  23. Lord, please give back Chespirito and take away Vázquez Raña! You took the wrong mexican :(

  24. Chespirito... :'(

      Maybe a minute of silence? Although people might be pissy since they didnt do a minute of silence for the 43 killed students in the opening.

    4. Victor Mata

      Victor Mata

      You're right. The 43 are a political issue. Bolaños passing, although very sad to many of us, is nothing like that tragedy.

  25. Interstellar: WOW!...just WOW!!!!
