  1. Ride your new wheels in good health, Rols.

  2. Yeah, & nobody said Qatar would win trhe WC 2022. Well, who knows they might just win 2020, too. I know...it's hilarious.

      Here, this might help you out a bit... http://www.myzanaprin.com/

  3. Considering your 2016 candidate, Chicago, went out first, I really can't buy your & Athensfan's handicapping skills...not to mention how clouded your assessments are, by what seem 2 me 2 be purely subjective views, rather than cold, hard facts, I wouldn't consider Denver a shoo-in again. That I-70 corridor is going to be a complete f*ck-up.

      like you provide all sorts of "facts" about Reno... hilarious, just hilarious. Go Denver!

      I am sure there will be plenty of flights for you to take to Denver in 2026, so don't worry about getting there my friend.

      You and I discussed the fact that we both privately expected Rio to win 2016. I arrived at that opinion as soon as I saw the Evaluation Report and told you so. If memory serves, you campaigned harder than I did for Chicago. You even tried to spearhead a letter-writing campaign to get Obama to go to Copenhagen. Now you say Chicago's loss is evidence of my poor handicapping skills? And you wonder why I accuse you of twisting facts and writing purposely inflammatory remarks....

  5. Why not? They have better, MORE accessible slopes than Denver. The slopes & the city, regardless of the jaundiced view here by SOME (not everyone shares the views...so the IOC voters may NOT share such biased views), are only 45 minutes apart from each other. How do you not know that maybe NBC might not weigh in what is more PHOTOGENIC for them? Half the events take place on the slopes, and the OTHER hakf take place INSIDE stadia? So I don't really understand the lopsided view of...

  6. No, but NOT all cities have that black cloud hanging over them which says: how can we trust them again? And from early reports, the Denver organizers are DOING exactly the same thing they did in 1970-72. So how can you trust an org like that? How can you, as an IOCer, not think: we've been down this road before...why should we be made a fool of once more by a city that doesn't know how to get their act together? If they can't organize Step A, how can they organize the ACTUAL Games?

      ...so then let's go for the biggest little town in the world. Denver is going to host an Olympics some day. It doesn't hurt to try now and learn a few things. 2022 is not going to the U.S. anyway.

  7. Denver has the biggest Achilles heel. Can't even get environmentalists on board. Even younger IOCers would say: they gave it back in 1972, why do they want it again?

      All bid cities will have activists against their bid, even Reno - you'll see :)

      It's been sort of quiet without anything big happening, thankfully London is just around the corner.

      Id say we should see a huge boost in activity sometime in the spring, when London time starts getting really close.

  18. @int...NOT every post has to be ACKNOWLEDGED. SOmetimes politesse requries that maybe some posts do NOT need acknowledgement.

  20. If something is put for public view and judgment, then it is FAIR GAME. If supporters wish to shield the object of their pride from criticism of any sort, then it should be wrapped up and kept in a hangar with limited access and to only those with a code. Otherwise, it is open season for the validity or not of its worth.

  21. People. pls send me PMs...NOT comments. I won't open those. Thanks.
