    Most underrated in Olympic history

    Most underrated opening/closing: Vancouver 2010. Enough said.

    FIFA World Cup 2026

    You guys don't realize that Canada has been chosen to host the 2015 Women's World Cup? Are you guys blind or deaf or something (or both blind and deaf)?

    Rio de Janeiro 2016 Ceremonies

    On a bit of a different note, what will the countdown be like? Beijing used drummers, London popped balloons, and Rio...? Well, it depends on who you ask, I guess. Oh yeah...and who do you think is gonna light the torch? What will the torck look like? What is my name? Where am I? AUUUGH!! TOO MANY QUESTIONS IN MY HEAD RIGHT NOW!!!

    ^By that, I mean that the closing ceremonies are going to be one of the most memorable in Olympic history. Sure, the opening ceremonies get much more attention, but if you're looking for a closing ceremony that people will be talking about for years to come, look no further.

    Rio de Janeiro 2016 Ceremonies

    I don't know about the opening ceremonies, but there's going to be a heck of a lot of partying in the closing ceremonies!
  6. How about 2, 2,020 taiko drummers maybe? That would be awesome! ;D

    The Next Asian Host Olympic Frontier?

    No love for Chinese Taipei or Dubai? They may bid for 2024 if Japan's 2020 bid is unsuccessful.

    Tulsa 2024

    The only thing I know Tulsa for is Route 66 and that's pretty much it. That's why they won't win.

    USA 2024

    ^ I'm talking about AMERICAN football teams (as in the NFL), not world football teams.

    USA 2024

    One problem...what will become of the three American football teams from NYC and Philadelphia that play preseason games in August? Where will they have to play their games if the Olympics conflict with their preseason schedule? In my opinion, the football venues are a little too close to each other. I think they should be a little more spread out (think of this year's Olympics and how far some of the venues were to each other, such as Hampden Park in Glasgow to Wembley Stadium in London, which are about 6.5 hours apart).

    Winter 2022

    ^ Agreed. 2022 should go to either Munich or Oslo.

    Burlington 2026

    I believe that the odds of Burlington bidding for 2026 are slim. Why? The US is much more interested in 2024. The last Olympic Games they hosted were Winter Games. Cities like Denver or Reno/Lake Tahoe have a better chance in the future. I'm not saying that Burlington will NEVER win. But I think as of now, the odds are slim.
  13. I heard that they're also going to build the Bosphorus Stadium for the ceremonies. I don't think it will host any sports, though.

    USA 2024

    Of course they are; you just don't realize that. Besides, you probably aren't a member of the IOC anyway.
