  1. Los Angeles 2028

    It's nice to see that the Coliseum has stood the test of time. In this day of stadiums being discarded after 20-30 years, the fact that the Coliseum will be over 100 years old (albeit with several renovations) by the time the 2028 Games get here is really impressive.
  2. I really enjoyed listening to Katie on her previous OC assignments. Glad to hear that she's back.
  3. I actually think having flagbearers carrying both the South and North Korean flags side by side would be a more powerful image than two people carrying the unification flag.
  4. That was my first thought as well, but it is an attempt to bring new eyeballs to the channel. There are many who have no idea it even exists, including most of my family. I hijacked the remote control at our Christmas dinner and nobody knew what I was watching. I really don't know if this will work. Only a very small number of people actually pay attention to the background graphics.
  5. To me, Mark Lee and Chris Cuthbert will always be NHL people.
  6. Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    Another great find. I did not know that the 1975 opening was in the Azteca, I had just assumed it was at Olympic Stadium. I noticed here, as well in the video from 1987, that Chile comes in out of order behind Cuba in the parade, was there some political reason for this?
  7. He also wanted to boycott Sochi. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/07/lindsey-graham-wants-ruin-2014-olympics-over-edward-snowden/313264/
  8. Unless he actually means the Olympic Park. I'm not sure if that will be open to the general public or only ticket holders.
  9. I like the music, but then I think I say that every time.

    For those in the US with the Olympic Channel on TV, they will bill airing the Salt Lake OC on Tuesday and the Torino OC on Wednesday. Both start at 8 pm EST.

    I love it, I think its even better than 2008, and that wasn't too bad either,
  12. Love the blankets with the pictograms.
  13. Russia 2018

    I wasn't even thinking about the political connotations, just the rarity of all-Arab WC matchups. Probably comes from the fact that Saudi Arabia vs Morocco in 1994 is the only men's WC that I have attended. I think Saudi Arabia-Tunisia in 2006 is the only other one to have taken place.

    The deletions on the Olympic Channel might be understandable if they didn't have so much of what I consider "junk", such as the European Youth Olympic Festival, World Games, and a zillion videos of Pita Taufatofua.

    Olympic Channel now has the OC from Innsbruck 1976, I don't believe that I've seen it anywhere before on YouTube or any other site.
