  1. Anything by 1 direction. Looking back, I guess they had some really nice stuff. I like their songs perfect and history especially, but some of their more up-tempo stuff still makes me cringe
  2. I think it would be neat to watch the new mono bobsled event in Latvia!
  3. Also, with Dowell's downfall Rio team probably set. Bet Douglas, Raisman, Biles, Nichols? are prob, locks. and then probably Kocian as bars specialist.. Guess Dennis, Hernandez, etc. might have to 'wait' for Tokyo. On Russia, Mustafina would be a lock, and I hope that some other names such as Sosnitskaya or Melnikova (age eligible?) are in the mix. Guess Komova might be on shaky terms but earned a medal & can't really replace her. Seda's usually solid. Paseka on vault and Afanasyeva on floor were awesome. IN MAG, surprised Leyva's medalled in HB and not PB this year, but guess he might have medalled before had he not wiped out on bar with chin that one time, and his hop skill is the coolest Didn't watch the men's competition, but surprised Ablyazin or Belyavskiy didn't medal.
  4. Looking at pictures... Why are there no trees in the middle? It looks like they could fit a golf course (which I think are the worst) or world's fair there. I think like a 'central park' would be nicer? Is lack of trees one of reasons it's so dry? I know DC has a national mall, but that axis is like ridiculous..
  5. I think Brasilia 2019 would be a nice project in better times. Prob. would have built a lot of unnecessary stuff though. I think it's a good thing that Brazil is now listening to its people who would rather see hospitals, schools, etc. built. I wonder if Santiago might try to 'steal' this event, might have same issues though? Also, bet Glasgow could easily pull this event off, but doubt they'll try. But honestly, like DannyelBrazil, I could see other city like Belo Horizonte maybe pulling this off too. Never been to Brazil, but when I learned about Brasilia in a college class, it seemed like someone's urban dream or epcot or something, not like a real or 'natural' city? city in Japan.. Nagoya?

      I don't know much about Boston but people there love it especially if they are from there.

  7. What is the building for with the canopy roof? Looks nice.
  8. Didn't see this posted yet. I hope a recent big event host city gets this. Kazan again? Or Guadalajara with pan ams facilities.
  9. I think this year Wagner and Gold could actually be threats at worlds. With Nagasu also maybe one to watch if she qualifies. But is Gold's foot injury better?
  10. feeling sadness for france :(

  11. For ability to host and maybe beat out all other final bids, LA. For freshness, I would pick Boston
  12. I think Erdogan's statements (regarding women) are ridiclous...as usual

    1. Alexjc


      And they wondered why the Olympic dream faded away...

    2. Pixie_Victoria


      Erdogan is a sad clown

  13. Interstellar looks like fun movie :)

  14. I think San Francisco would be the most scenic, and maybe they could get silicon valley behind a bid too?
  15. If they have k-pop star, I hope they have large brightly colored balloons in varying relative sizes in stadium, and bright inflated balls for audience.
  16. sochi arenas look great on tv!

  17. sochi venues look amazing! especially arenas

  18. I hope they have skate sailing performers and dolphin projections
  19. Shanghai bid?... yes, please! :)

    1. deawebo


      Chill out... First let's wait with Beijing's bizarre bid lol

  20. to clarify... missiles nothing to sneeze at. I know I cannot compose proper sentences. Also, John Kerry too-OMG. (talking about making it worse with words)
  21. I like Kayseri's ice skating hall-for locals? And Erciyes winter sports center has really nice plans! Maybe Turkey will have some athletes before a bid in like the 2030s
