  1. The Olympics are getting too big for themselves.
  2. would they push the redevelopment to begin asap and have the opening ceremony be in the new stadium on the site of san siro?
  3. i think the only improvement that coulda been made there was some scenery of Ipanema.
  4. Feels cheap (not saying it was), one note, and disjointed. NOT looking forward to Paris like this. The vastness doesn't help. A stadium helps to contain the program. Sure, the views of the city are nice. I agree with you (for once lol)
  5. I voted for Athens because it has a special place in my heart and I liked the theatrics and drama of it. It was very clean and well produced, in my opinion. Papaiannou's stories take a lot of work on the part of the view to interpret and understand. I do agree though with what you said, Scotguy, about both Sydney and Athens. Sydney is the quintessential Opening Ceremony. I'm all Athens, Sydney, Barcelona before anything we've seen in the last 15 years. I'll take SLC, Torino and Vancouver over Sochi.
  6. what the hell did i just read. these last few pages feel like a piss take hahahaha
  7. I'm looking at it through an American lens and I'm making a sweeping generalization here, but I'm confident that most Americans don't know where Brisbane is. A lack of familiarity with a city makes it hard for Americans to invest in a Games. Also the lack of buzz from selection doesn't help either.
  8. Okay, I'm still baffled why they rushed to pick Brisbane. I feel like it will usher in another era of quiet games like we've seen over the last few cycles.
  9. The colors reminded me of those used in during the Parade of Nations during the Olympics Opening in 2008. When the athletes walked across the giant scroll and they stamped their feet in the paint. All around a great ceremony. At first, I didn't understand where that first artistic bit was going with the two kids, but in the end I thought it was very touching! The music for the PON was much better, even if it was a little slow. A clean and solid show overall! hoping to get more cultural in the years to come! Missing the big show pieces and storylines.
