  1. why are you comparing some ancient ruin to Reno?
  2. Cant imagine any interest, what was their alpine situation? I though I remembered reading they had a pretty lame mountain/geography but I could be wrong.
  3. I think Madrid is the favorite. Tokyo offers stability but still feels too soon for another monster Asian Summer games. Doha would be spectacular and spectacularly controversial, but money may talk. Baku.....yuk....sorry, I'm American so you can blame it on that. Istanbul...too many ties to teetering and volatile neighbors..again...I'm American sorry. Rome...goodbye.
  4. Madrid looks better to me than the rest ,no reason why.
  5. Oh god yes, please do post more "cloud" pics of Rio, if there's anything that may fascinate us it's one more "cloud" picture of Rio.
  6. every time this thread "Support Annecy" comes to the top I have to laugh......7 time. I read all the arrogant comments (yes "arrogant") from Tulsa and some other French supporters for the last couple months and the big 7 votes is a bit of karma I guess. Now all the whining here is being done in French........way to solidify the stereotype guys.
  7. This whole wrap sponsor bit is starting to sound odd. I hope there is NO sponsor identification permitted, or this could be the degradation of another Olympic tradition.
  8. Wow there are a LOT of empty seats not just aside the tinny flame wad, but all over above and on both sides. Also how unorganized could the choreography possibly be!!! It looks like they just waltzed out there without a plan, the opposite of Beijing (not that that's a fair comparison but come on)! The real thing better be good, but I get the feeling the 2016 host kinda feels like the hard part is over.
  9. Without American military strength, and enduring efforts to promote freedom and peace, where would the world be now? Had we shown weakness our country would probably not exist now, which likely would please some of you. God knows what Europe would be, certainly not free and independent. Unfortunately now evil regimes have learned they will loose in a fist to fist fight with the US, so they have infiltrated free and capitalist societies, and particularly in Europe and the US they are using our systems against us. This is why it's so frustrating to hear some from the free world bitching about th
  10. At least there is something interesting in the book about the not-so-memorable games. This guy is an idiot to have used the language he did int he book. I wonder if it was his lame attempt to put something interesting or controversial in the book. But agreed, it's over, really seems like it never happened even, move on. Vancouver is the only city I know that seemed better before it hosted...not sure why....I think maybe it goes to the head of the people and they become a little fanatical and self-centered, which is the opposite of how I used to see Vancouverites. Plus the look of the games ca
  11. Before Hiroshima should host, Honolulu should host, if you want to commemorate a bunch of negative crap. Just because Japan got stopped in it's tracks by the US, don't forget their original destructive and evil intentions. They were dishonorable in their acts that brought about the bombings, and there is no reason to gloss over their disgraceful past with an Olympic award.
  12. That is one ugly monster, I guess Rio isn't known for it's architecture and won't be anytime soon. Maybe the Orbit tower should be moved to Rio after 2012, it could be on an island like that hideous fantasy waterfall structure.
  13. I think it's brilliant, I love everything about it. What was the purpose of that slab to the right?
  14. No wonder Rio is most known for its gangs and violence. I've see no one here but a Brazillian try to use violence at past games as venom to critisize others. They seem primed for violence and problems.
  15. More Canadian venom, you guys always played second or third fiddle but always used to have more class about it; now you're all hyped up and acting like hot headed Brazilians about everything. This is all "short man's complex" on the part of countries scrambling up some imaginary status ladder that you aspire to climd. You guys have always been great in ways you don't even take pride in now; now you all try to act American. I'll take it as a compliment. The best part of you just dissapeared.
  16. Merci, to the "new" Canada. And here I was thinking you only "blew".
  17. .....these were C+ games, har to believe the were not better in such an impressive city and at Whistler. Plus the Canadians here are nasty now, they sort of acted sweet and bright for a while but as the vibe of these games sarted to nosedive people got a little twitchy, like Mr Xs comments above. Get over it Canada, you kinda blew.
  18. Simply one of the ugliest cauldrons ever, and a spectacular failure to boot. Thank god your mascots didn't look like sex toys.
  19. The only stereotypes being broken by the pride house are that gays are good decorators and cuter than straight guys.. Only a troll could love that statue.
  20. No US games is probably better for everyone. South America should go for it.
  21. At least someone in the world is doing really exciting venues and concepts.
