  1. Sorry for the delay, but my phone, again, f%@$ me during the final part of the event (I hate android). Rushed home because of the rain, since was first time during this period I was caught without a coat (long day, which included a kids' party). She is one of the music powerhouses here, together with a couple of others. She has a kind of "rivalry" with Claudia Leite, who sang the official song of World Cup. The major problem wasn't her, but all other singers who sang before her. Some of them were totally dispensable, but all of them have to sing 3 songs. With the rain, only the die
  2. Thank god Nuzman is speaking only in one language. It took 4 tries for him to get real.
  3. The brazlian athletes took over the field and are dancing around, some other athletes followed.
  4. It is because of the song by Vanessa da Mata, which says to be wet by the rain
  5. The australians just showed a "Thank you" sign inside the field. Too quick to take a pic.
  6. Hello, everyone. Inside the stadium again. Let's see If the phone don't mess with me again.
  7. I know, but still the number of athletes who went to the OC seems like the same as tonight. And a lot left the stadium right after they entered.
  8. Seems like all the athletes went to the ceremony, unlike the Olympic. Always nice to see this.
  9. Flagbearers who received the flags from the athletes dancing with them.
  10. Hey everyone. Inside the stadium. Great so far. Much more Rio related than the Olympic ceremony. Nothing to complain.
  11. Yeah, right. Right now I am scared inside my apartment fearing those protests will hurt me and my family... not! If you want a real protest go to Caracas right now. THAT is a protest. Get real...
  12. Thanks for all the replies. Had a huge "Olympic" hangover, still didn´t return to normal life yet. Hey, there is still the Paralympic Games! Going to be a volunteer at Paratriathlon (couldn´t do both during Olympic Games and happy I gave up before I regretted it) and planning to go the Olympic Park with my daughter next Saturday, much more relaxed now, to enjoy with her. Olympian2004, I will try to come back here more often. I know we don´t talk only about bids here, but the main reason I joined here was the fact of hoping that, someday, I would had the privilege to watch the O
  13. Hey everyone, It has been a while since I have posted here. No, I am not late to the party, at all. As a matter of fact, since I live in Rio, I was part of it the whole time, but life makes some surprising twists, which means sometimes I wasn´t able to do it properly. Four years ago I wrote this post, right after London Games. Then, I´ve tried to sum up all my expectation and fears about the Games and, on the last paragraph, I wrote: "Hopefully, in 4 years, I can come here and write that Rio made a great Olympic Games, just like London did last night, and finally have o
  14. Hey Baron (and everyone) That segment is not a "In memorian" segment. Saudade means you miss someone, but not always when someone dies. You can miss someone because it is gone and won´t comeback soon. That what means that segment: knowing that the Games were over and will be missed by the cariocas.
  15. Straight ahead to Rio 2016

  16. Well, can´t wait to actually WATCH it, since I am at work, but great time with you guys. LIke 2010, I will be again a commentator for nordic events here in Brazilian TV, so won´t have much time to post it here. I will try to read and post it if I can.
  17. Well, the South Korean ones now don´t comeback when someone makes them go away
  18. And yet no one here in Brazil recalls that "dove barbecue" when it comes to the doves of peace segment
