  1. I've never been to a rugby game (I've really wanted to for so long), but I sincerely hope Dallas, Kansas City, St Louis or Denver are selected to host, given they are the closest major markets to where I live.
  2. Nice job Games bidders...keeping your anti-China racism going at all times, huh? By your logic, then that means Italy, France, the US, Australia, Britain, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium and Germany should never be allowed to host major events like the Olympics...right? Oh...right..only China must be excluded. I'm sorry to break it to you, but Americans, and white people in general, have long surrendered their "ability" to lecture other countries, particularly those run by non whites, about how to run their countries, given all the atrocities and injustices committed against Indigenous peoples and black people. I'll be waiting for the protests against LA 28 regarding police brutality and systematic racism in America...
  3. Sorry to rain an y'alls parade, but there's one teensy tiny problem, and that's COVID19. Does any reasonable human truly believe that this bastard virus won't be forcing restrictions well into 24...or 26,28, 30, 32, 34 and so on for that matter. Fact is COVID19 is here forever, and therefore restrictions will be here forever as well. Large sporting events should never happen again, sad to say. It's just too dangerous with the spread of this virus.
  4. I forgot to add on this: Japan is smart for banning all fans from the events including the outdoor events...even though the wonderful CDC said that COVID19 can't spread as easily outdoors as indoors, which I don't buy for one second. I'm fully vaxxed, but I will keep masking up...indoors AND outdoors, thank you very much.
  5. Well the Olympic Games are now underway in Tokyo.....and I am NOT happy about it and as a lifelong Olympic fan that's something I thought I would never say about the Olympics, but with this horrible pandemic both the Olympics and Euros should have been scrapped....if only UEFA and the IOC weren't selfish greedy clowns, and I'm supposed to like clowns, but these dumbasses....maybe I better stop before I really have a meltdown..
  6. There are people getting sick and dying from this bastard virus and all y'all care about is ceremonies....unbelievable., yet not suprising for this site.
  7. I've heard of the Liberal Party, but the Libreal Party? That's a new one. As for judging by the comments on 7, 9 and 10 News' Facebook pages, I have seen plenty of support for permanently cutting Australia off from the rest of the world forever to keep deadly viruses like COVID19 out. Those people sound exactly like the Trumpists, wanting to ban foreigners from ever coming to their country again, (and as a consequence surrendering the 2023 Women's World Cup and the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, they be awarded to Queensland), the only difference is the people posting on said pages, for the most part, are taking the threat of COVID19 seriously.
  8. You know, y'all can keep yelling at REDWHITEBLUE24 all you want, but he's deadfast in what he wants, and he won't let anyone on here change his mind. And how is his boycott "fetish" any different to the ceremony "fetish" a lot of people on here have? Regardless, yelling at him is as fruitless as trying to get a PS5.
  9. Call me unimpressed, and honestly, both games look meh. Though if they had Fire Emblem or Zelda characters involved, especially with archery and fencing, then maybe this might be worth a look, but otherwise, nothing special. Though just for some fun, #MiraitowaforSmash (
  10. I mean, if there's anything right now that badly needs the reboot treatment, it's the IOC, and it won't come from within unfortunately.
  11. And here I thought those wanting Goku in Smash Brothers were delusional...
  12. Based on all that has happened, I can only draw two conclusions that I see happening, both with all 3 bids getting KO'd: The IOC will convince Beijing to host again in 2026, or outright cancel those games. But they've got no one to blame but themselves for a number of dumbfounding decisions over the last decade that have left them in this situation. And in all honesty, expect China to be the permanent home of the Olympics sooner rather than later, and then we'll protest that they don't deserve the Olympics. Talk about having it both ways.
  13. Heaven help the mascot candidates if Deviantart gets a hand on them, if it does, expect them to be turned into My Little Pony and other things I cannot mention here. Level 5 is also the company behind the Professor Layton series.
  14. My 93 year old grandmother just died this evening in Moundridge. My uncle, sister, Mom and I were there at her bedside as she passed away. It's going to take a long time to recover from this loss; Tina was one of the most generous, loving and caring people you coud ever know, All the fun we had at her house, all the KU basketball games we went to, and producing two of the most caring people I'm fortunate to know: my uncle and my Mom. Goodbye, Tina. Thank you. And Rock Chalk.
  15. Let me be perfectly blunt: I support the Olympic Games, I DO NOT AND WILL NOT support the IOC. If only FIFA, the NCAA and IOC had any common sense, but they don't.
  16. Who knows? Maybe the international federations will do the right thing and all of this will be a moot point but I doubt it. Just heartbreaking, though maybe unsurprising.
  17. What a rotten month, and I'm not just talking about the heat. First Hillary, now the Russians...where is the accountability? Shouldn't all of us be held accountable for our actions? Needless to say, R.I.P Olympic Games 1894-2016
  18. I have to say it's going to be extremely difficult to find any team that has a chance at beating the Brazilian volleyball teams, particularly with the immense home court advantage they're going to have, though if I had to pick the women or men, the Brazilian women have to be the more clear cut favorites.
  19. Just how much more derpy can NBC get? I mean, their power hunger is getting to the point where I'd rather play Smash Bros and get ko'd by Bayonetta than watch NBC's coverage.
  20. Meanwhile, fans at Copa America have been relatively peaceful. At Copa America, fans are having a good time, while all hell has broken loose in France. I really feel for the locals, and the security forces as well. The locals welcome thee people in their country, and this is the thanks they get? Personally, every last hoodlum involved in this stupidity should be forced to stay and repair all the damage they caused. It's not right for these morons to create all this havoc, leave, and force the store owners or home owners to clean up their messes.
  21. Holy Nova! What a finish in Houston! Congrats Villanova!

  22. I would have to say the US women are much more likely to win gold, but don't misunderstand. The US men should still win gold, but the quality of opposition on the men's side is far deeper than on the women's side right now. Honestly, I really don't see much of a challenge for the women. The men, however, will have to navigate a rapidly improving field. Argentina, France (should they qualify,) Lithuania, Australia, and of course Spain, all could give the US a run for its money on the hardwood. Like I said earlier, the US men should win, but they have a much more difficult path than the women do.
  23. Cannot wait for Corrin and Bayonetta to get to Smash Bros.

  24. The Rio 2016 edition of the Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games was announced last month at E3, with the WII U and 3DS versions likely to be released around Christmas or at the start of 2016. I just came about this while reading on an arcade news site, and if it's true, this would be the first Mario and Sonic Olympic title to be released in arcades. http://arcadeheroes.com/2015/07/17/details-on-mario-and-sonic-at-the-rio-2016-olympics-arcade-edition/ In all likelihood, it's set to be released in Japan first, and then come out to Western arcades later in the year. The cabinet does look pretty cool, but I would hope the gameplay, arcade and home console, will have been drastically improved since the 2014 title. I hope I've got this in the right place, and if it isn't, feel free to move this to the appropriate location. I hope I did, considering I don't post very often.
  25. Kansas aka USA-66 Turkey 57 Not pretty, but a win's a win. Rock Chalk! http://kuathletics.com/galleries/?gallery=472 http://kuathletics.com/news/2015/7/3/MBB_0703155714.aspx
