  1. Toronto?

    Lake Placid would only host the speed events. Collingwood is about 1 3/4 hours north of Toronto, and is home to Georgian Peaks, which is certified to host FIS slalom and GS events. Just down the road is Blue Mountain Resort, which has the accommodations available to host an Olympics, and has hosted world cup freestyle and snowboarding events in the past. Not to mention there used to be a ski jump located at the resort, and a Nordic skiing area nearby. A pipe dream, sure, but certainly not crazy if its the only option, as intoronto mentioned.
  2. Toronto?

    Would love to hear more about this.. Text me
  3. FIFA World Cup 2026

    Jesus Christ mate, can you fucking ease up on Canada for a second? All stadiums presented can be expanded to north of 40,000. The new stadiums in Saskatchewan, Vancouver and Toronto are all state of the art, and Calgary is looking to build a new facility. We're not hosting an games past the Round of 16, so having massive stadiums is not that big of a priority. Also, not exactly sure what the two athletics stadiums are, there's only one (Commonwealth) which has great sight lines anyways and just hosted a successful women's world cup. All of these stadiums presented (including Rogers Centre in soccer form) would be great venues to watch a soccer game. You're a clown
  4. FIFA World Cup 2026

    I predict it will be Toronto and Vancouver (3 games each), and then Montreal and Calgary (2 games each)
  5. Donald Trump

    A first past the post voting system naturally leads to a two party system overtime. You would have to alter the way in which the election results are calculated.
  6. Donald Trump

    America's president is a Nazi sympathizer. Wow
  7. Ice arena looks identical to Sochi's from the inside
  8. On the bright side of all of this, Hillary Clinton's political career is over and hopefully she will disappear into the shadows. I always thought it would be a shame to have her shatter the highest glass ceiling. Would love to see an authentic women who isn't beholden to special interests like Elizabeth Warren crush Trump in 2020 and become the first female President. It really does say a lot about Hillary that she couldn't manage to defeat this fucking clown. The reality is that against practically any other Democratic candidate, Trump would have been handily defeated. Nothing we can do now but give Trump a fair chance to govern and call him out when he does wrong. I'm most interested to see his dynamic with other world leaders, specifically his polar opposites in Trudeau and EPN and how the future of NAFTA will play out. One of the things forgotten in all of this is who will be in Trump's cabinet. He already has an evolution denier and believer in gay-conversion therapy as his VP, and bigoted fools/fear-mongers like Christie, Gingrich, Giuliani and Palin will likely be his closest advisors. I'm also interested to see how this all works out for Paul Ryan. I think he's kind of fucked. No doubt in my mind that Trump is going to try and destroy his political career because of the lack of support he showed during the election. Trump always has to get even with those who wrong him.
  9. Canada in Rio.

    Brazil's soccer gold was their Vancouver 2010 moment. A national hero in their national sport scoring the game winner in extra time on one of the final days of competition.

    Those were the manliest looking "women" I've ever seen.
  11. Canada in Rio.

    We're going to easily crack 20 medals. Benfeito and Weibe after today, with men's 200m, 4x100m, Brooke Henderson and Mark DeJonge still to come. Hopefully we can add a couple more in women's soccer and mountain biking.

    If you hadn't suppressed minorities in your country for hundreds of years it wouldn't even be such a big deal.
