  1. Might rewatch this later in primetime with commentary, and pray that it doesn't suck.
  2. So where will the athletes be in all this? On the floor as usual?
  3. The bad part is that this whole mess overshadows anyone in FIFA who's trying to do right by the game. At least I hope there are good people in FIFA.
  4. I haven't been able to catch much. Has anyone stateside been watching ESPN's coverage? How are they doing compared to everyone else?
  5. Sochi's ceremony was underneath a roof, but that was temporary so I don't know if it really counts. I recorded the ceremony, so I was able to skip the speeches and most of the parade.
  6. Host city winner: Istanbul First city voted out: Madrid How many voting rounds: Two Which sport will be added: Wrestling Who will be the new IOC president: Richard Carrion
  7. I not sure if America cares enough about the Pan Am Games to mount a serious bid. I don't think they get a whole lot of coverage despite being "covered" (and I use that term loosely) by ESPN. Although if a US city were going to bid, I would prefer Minneapolis or Columbus.
  8. In my opinion, The capacity of Matthews Arena seems better suited for something like taekwondo or table tennis.
  9. The slalom venue, to me, seems to me like the venue with the least amount of return on investment. What can you really do with it after the games? Is the legacy potential really all that high?
  10. Part of me believes that this whole "moving the World Cup to November" thing could possibly be a great ploy by FIFA to try and change the location of the tournament, or at least re-do the election. Less people may argue if its proven by FIFA that Qatar can't properly host the tournament in summer and it can't be moved to winter without angering the leagues. Just a theory.
  11. Just finished watching the ESPN stream and is it just me, or does the set they used in the ceremony look like the one U2 used in the 360 tour?
  12. That does make me wonder though. Johannesburg is the biggest city in South Africa and probably the most well known. Why don't we ever hear about them in terms of the Olympics. Just a nagging question.
  13. I think he's saying that if the field is as competitive as it looks right now, with cities like Paris and Durban, among other major world cities, looking like they want to bid, it lowers the chances of an American bid, and as such, it may be better for the USOC to wait to bid until 2028 or 2032. Especially if they don't have a very compelling option. Correct me if I'm wrong, Athens.
