  1. Maybe Pui or one of the other Chinese posters could help me. I was in Hong Kong last week and was wondering where the venue for the equestrian events was going to be. I noticed a stop on the MRT line between Kowloon and the airport called "Olympic" (or something like that) and the station was decorated with Olympic sports scenes. Is this the location? I had no luck finding official Beijing 2008 gear. Everyone I asked had no idea. The only stuff I saw was the odd t-short with the old bid logo on it (which I have already). I was really surprised not to see the "Friendlies" for sale in any form. Oh well, hope the Beijing website puts gear up for sale soon.
  2. Dear Puppy, Strolling through Tsim Sha Tsui recently, on your advice, I stumbled upon the following fine establishment: Knowing of your own recent(ish) visit to Hong Kong, and future intentions to visit the mainland, I was wondering if this property was a front for an attempt to spearhead separatist Puppist activities within the Chinese motherland.
  3. The Australian team was 629-strong in Sydney. I'm finding it hard to dig up the 1996 US team size.
  4. I'm getting triple posts on GamesBids at the moment _ not all the time and not on all threads, but it's embarassing and annoying (it also happens to some of my PMs). Any idea if this is a GamesBids server problem? And is it possible to deleteb some of my triple ups (like from the Eurovision thread)?

  7. Maybe check with roltel. I watched the parade and nothing would be more popular than wearing nothing. Let me step in then! As puppy said, as a general rule the less the better (except for tattoos and piercings, in which case the more the better). Anyway, by the time you've been dancing the night away with 10,000m other sweaty bodies at the parade after party, any form of clothing tends to get too hot (and from experience, it's difficult to get tight leather briefs off after they have been molded to your body by heavy dance sweat). The various leather and bear parties in the lead up to the main event tend to have dress codes depending on the fetish. There's an old saying about Mardi Gras parties _ the more elaborate the costume, the less likely you are to "score". ... O.K. - then no rubber - do I have to get a "Prince Albert" or is a tit-piercing enough? Crossing my fingers this doesn't triple post. Tit piercings are cool _ but common. Prince Alberts? Fascinating to behold, but excruciating to consider getting done.

  13. Okay Puppy, I've got three days to kill in Hong Kong coming up. What do you recommend, a day in Disneyland or a day in Macau (and do you know any good restaurants there)?
  14. Australian is planning to be the third largest team at Beijing 2008.
  15. Are we gonna get another special forum section for WC 2006 like we do for the actual Olympics (and I think was done for Euro 2004)?
  16. Hi Mod, I always like when we shift to actual games mode, with the special forum sections like we did for Athens and are doing for Torino. Just wondering if there's any similar plans to do the same for the Melbourne CWGs?
  17. I'm still waitingg to see Greenspan's turn on Sydney _ it showed here for like about one day in a cinema on the first anniversary of Sydney 2000, I think, then disappeared. Anyone know if it's available on DVD or (heaven forbid) VHS anywhere in the world.
  18. Hehehe, I just looked at the beginning of this thread and answered my own question _ I'd forgotten "Chariots of Fire" of course!
  19. Now that "Munich" is going to be out in cinemas soon, might as well resurrect this thread. Now here's a question _ if "Munich" _ as per current Hollywwod buzz indicates _ does end up getting an Oscar, would this be the first Olympics movie to get an Academy Award?
  20. Welcome to Gamesbids Dating, ladies and gentlemen. :laughlong: Seriously, where on earth has the time gone? I hadn't noticed that! Oooh. You're such a flirt, LA84! giggles coquettishly :sweet: blush
  21. I notice there's still a few threads relating to the Commonwealth Games _ such as "Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games update" and a couple of Melbourne 2006 ones still hanging around in the Other International Games" forum _ is it possible to get these shifted over to the dedicated Commonwealth Games forum as well?
  22. Okay, as I promised/threatened, here's some of my personal pics from Sydney 2000. Sorry if they're a bit large _ I only have MS Paint on my work PC, so I can't reduce them. Anyway: Me with some friends at Bondi for the Beach Volleyball, We decided to become honourary Brazilians for the day _ they had the best supporters! The Sydney Harbour Bridge decked out in the Five Rings Me enjoying the Olympic Live site in Martin Place, central Sydney. Mens gymnastics final at Olympic Park. I'm part of the crowd sitting directly above the action.
  23. Today marks the five years point since the opening of Sydney 2000, one of the great times to be in my home city. In the tradition of the Atlanta and Athens threads, therefore, I thought I'd open up this one. When I get home, I'll post some of my personal pics from the games. In the meantime, here's a story on AOC president John Coates, marking of the ocassion:
  24. Is anyone else having problems getting onto the Paris forum? Whenever I try I get the message "Ikonboard logged off due to a ridiculously large data request". It doesn't happen on any other forum here. What have the Paris boys been doing on there?????
