Cauldron Lighter 20000 Club (16/16)



  1. YOU're telling me to relax when YOU ARE THE #! MOST SLAVISH BELIEVER AND PROMOTER of EVERY single breath and whisper that these orgs put out and how you SLAVISHLY repeat, promote and TRUMPET them as if you were a paid PR hack -- which I think you are! SO F*CKING STOP TELLING OTHER PEOPLE how they should react to & interpret the ENDLESS CRAP that you post!! Look in the mirror first -- or maybe there's no image in your mirror? LOL!!
  2. If it were a Birmingham-Manchester 2036 bid, #1 - after Brisbane, and India;s bid is that Ahmenadbadabad instead of Delhi or Mumbai, the IOC would then be going with 2ndary and tertiary cities. I don't think that the IOC would be enthused with that idea. #2 - Why build new facilties / white elephants again in the Midlands when London has all of them? #3 - Would Birming-Manchester-Glasgow have the collection of 1st class hotels that London has? #4 - My only question for a 4th London bid would be: where would they place OV #4? Is there still space in QE2 Park?
  3. ANd,, of course, if LA (or whichever future host city) has the right faciltiies already in place and/or they wish to undertake any belated sports programs or not. A future host can ALWAYS reject belated sports additions since they were NOT part of the original bidding package and would be considered TOO burdensome and onerous belatedly added for the host city. Plus, it will change the # of athletes that were orginally estimated to be billeted in the Olympic Village.
  4. Luv those delegations ALL crowded together like pictured!! NO WAY can the virus get through all those bodies huddled together! And of course, if the teams, delegations, barges are spaced farther apart, a 3-hour ceremony would turn into a 5-hour Ceremony! WHAT GREAT FRENCH INNOVATION! Simply marvelous and INGENIOUS!!
  5. /\/\ Great find, Nacho, and thanks for posting it. It gave me shivers seeing it again. I remember it as if it were yesterday. When I was standing there (with one of the Blue Drum Tower crews), and as the first notes were playing, I felt those shivers down my spine -- there we were commemorating the 100th anniversary of the modern era Ganes -- and still connecting with a tradition over 2,000 years old!! I am SO GLAD I did it!!
  6. Nope. Barcelona 2030 is dead. It'll be between Salt Lake and Sapporo. Vancouver is still a big IF.
  7. Wow. Really clutching at straws. /\/\ They're not even of the same genre.
  8. So that'll free up one Roland Garros arena.
  9. In ruminating about LA 2028, what do the Ceremony-dreamers here think can LOGICALLY and FEASIBLY top the - 84 grand pianos used in the opening? 168 baby grands? And the Space Ship at Closing? I hope there will be some of sequal to the Space-ship thing since the Closing will be at LA Memorial. Far-out ideas OK, but no stupid, unoriginal ones please.
  10. Stop trying to KNOW more than me. It'll be BIGGER when I SAY it will be bigger. Not BEFORE THEN!! Got it??
  11. Yes - but that's one country only. The IOC wants universality in the new sports it features.
  12. Here's a strange one . . . what I take to be the Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Euro Rowing Championships in Marathon, Greece. It's . . . , well. very Greek.
  13. If Sapporo happens in 2030, it would be the FIFTH Winter City to repeat their 2nd try. So that would equal FIVE 2x hosts of the Summer Games: REPEAT OLYMPIC HOSTS: Summer - Paris, London, Los Angeles (3x'ers), Athens, Tokyo (2x'ers). Winter - St. Moritz, Innsbruck, Lake Placid, Cortina (1.5x) and either Sapp, SLC or Vancouver would be 2x hosts. 1st Bisexual host - Beijing!!
