  1. That is so so so stupid. A good ceremonies needs lots of fireworks.
  2. Our next winter games should be held in Quebec City.
  3. I thought Atlanta was fun, it wasn't trying to take its self seriously. Maybe that's just 90s nostalgia.
  4. Different strokes for different folks I guess. I thought that was the worst segment iv ever seen in anything to do with the Olympics.
  5. You enjoyed everything? Even the texting segment? The rapping? The strange inclusion of the Cosby show?
  6. And on the topic of a domestic bid race, will the same bid book be used for both that and the overall race?
  7. So does this mean there will be no applicant stage?
  8. Yeah, that part was hilarious and random, adding to my not understanding of whats going on AT ALL.

  10. Everyone iv spoken with personally who wasn't British didn't like it. Canadian, European, American, whatever.
  11. Mostly the texting segment, the only thing that really wow'ed me was the rings. The anthem, countdown, NHS segment were all pretty bad IMHO. Its annoying you cant edit your own posts.. Just pay attention to the bottom text.
  12. I could have excused the chaos completely had it not been for a few truly awful bits. Thats what in the end killed it for me.
  13. The video didn't specify a reason, just provided evidence of major discrepancies.
  14. Well first off ill say that before I watched the video I was EXTREMELY skeptical because such an assumption is insane. That being said... the video does provide an interesting case. If all the information provided in the video is indeed real, its certainly very very disturbing.
  15. I think Sochi will be epic, it will probably be on the scale of a summer opening and might just surpass a few of them.
  16. Is Olivia Chow against a bid? Looks like she might be the next mayor. You would NOT want Rob Ford anywhere near an Olympic bid.
  17. They should have gone with someone more familiar with theater direction. I think one of the issues may have been he tried to direct it as if it was a movie.
  18. I think it was in large part due to you being in the stadium, thats just a guess but I know if I was there in person I probably would have loved it too!
  19. Not at all Davey, I completely understand your opinion. I think perhaps the ceremony was directed in a way where the British public would better understand it. To an outsider though, as many have said it didn't really make much sense. I also think this is the first time a ceremony has been directed in such a way, it isnt a bad thing as the tax payers who funded it loved it, but those of us outside looking in where left largely unsatisfied, if not disappointed. It was my least favourite ceremony over all, but it certainly wasn't an embarrassment and the British should be very proud.
  20. Yeah everyone iv talked to locally was disappointed by it, some even going as far as to say it reminded them of the MTV music awards... I wouldn't go that far, although the texting segment... ugh. Just so inconsistent.
  21. Yeah, every Brit iv talked to also loved it. International reception has been mixed though.
