  1. What about Misty May and Kerri Walsh? Both iconic beach volleyball legends and native to California. Plus they could piggyback off that Beach Volleyball first started in Santa Monica
  2. https://mobile.twitter.com/la2024/status/821039685564649474 This is the video released by La 2024 on twitter. It features the main ceremonies being held at the Inglewood stadium while a "celebration of the 1932 and 1984 games" occurs. Not sure what that really means in terms of performance but it looks like the main event is at Inglewood.
  3. As for 2020 candidates some possibilities come to mind- Bernie- would generate excitement and get blue collar vote back, but he's old not sure he will try again Elizabeth Warren- another progressive like Bernie but not sure the country is ready for a woman as sexist as it sounds Corey Booker- young and promising face in the Democratic Party Michelle Obama- this excites me the most but she doesn't want to get into politics but that could change with Trump.
  4. I haven't been on here in a long time and this loss hurts so bad. All of the progress made under President Obama is going to made undone by this "man". I will never call him my President. Anyone who uses fear as a weapon doesn't deserve to be President. Watching Hillary concede today made my heart sank, she's done so much and doesn't deserve to go like this. Love will trump hate this is just a speed bump in the road.
  5. In complete shock and scared, hate won today #imstillwithher #notmypresident

  6. With swimming Phelps didn't swim at the world championships because of his suspension from his DUI so that probably brought down the medal count on butterfly and relay events.
  7. I honestly don't know what to watch on TV anymore. I tried watching movies, didn't work. I tried watching the news, didn't work either. The only thing that had worked is watching friends and that's the only thing that gets me up. I ended up watching beach volleyball and the ceremonies which I found on demand (LIFE SAVER). I guess I have to come out of my house....
  8. Ceremonies were very nice I hope the storm is to blame for the empty seats because it looked very bad I think during Bach's speech they had to move some people over behind him. I loved the way the extinguished the cauldron it was very magical with the rain and the lady singing. I just hope future ceremonies in the future are human focused instead of Sochi and Rio's projecter. Hopefully we can go back to more London and Beijing oriented.
  9. Considering the budget they did a very nice job, Brazil should be proud. I love the message of global warming and being one with nature. The projector was a nice convenience but I wish they used more props (low budget so understandable). The parade of nations was okay. It was too long but the tricycles were amazing. It didn't have the vibe that London did during the parade but it was still nice. After the parade everything seemed rushed. The rings presentation was beatiful (even with the giant cheese graters). The arrival of the Olympic flame was so anticlimactic. They should've announced it once he walked into the stadium not the hallway and then 45 seconds later he comes in. I was waiting for the bowl to light the sculpture but then I realized that the bowl is it.... Which looks pretty bad just a bowl and a sculpture in the back? Although the sun is beautiful. The fireworks throughout were great especially when they formed the rings and spelling out RIO ( I do prefer London's fireworks). I have to rewatch it once it goes up on YouTube because the tape delay and the constant commercials completely ruined it (cudos NBC). Overall very nice, just outside London? Beijing, and Athens.
  10. USA WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS TEAM Simone Biles Gabby Douglas Laurie Hernandez Aly Raisman Madison Kocian
  11. I think so. Somewhere in their plans I saw that or 60,000, can't remember.
  12. They're probably wearing shorts instead of pants because it gives off the party and summer atmosphere that Rio itself does.
  13. I vaguely remember a poll from the summer stating 89% of Americans support an Olympic Games within the country.
  14. We're laughing at this now, but years later we will look back and think about when the world wasn't so corrupt.
  15. Oh sorry, but having cards of women on the ground all over and vans driving around of half nude women didn't create a family friendly atmosphere.
  16. In Vegas currently. Pretty disappointed I have to say. There definetly is not, and I see little potential for an Olympic atmosphere. There is no transportation system besides a small monorail along the strip. Outside the strip there isn't much besides cookie cutter homes. Also for people who have never been to Vegas picture Times Square but more crowds, along with prostitutuon (it's legal and no way of avoiding it), open beer drinking, and a lot of gambling. Considering the city is built on these factors I don't see this changing anytime soon.
  17. https://swimswam.com/wont-watching-phelps-new-armour-ad/ Not specifically for Rio's games but for Michael Phelps's goodbye, Very good ad and very emotional.
  18. Would you be saying this if it was Rome vs Toronto or Paris vs Toronto. Toronto has never hosted the Olympic Games obviously, so wouldn't that give the edge to them? And considering there hasn't been a North American summer Olympics this century and Europe has already hosted twice this century you can say it's North America's time too.
  19. Interesting, the bid committee hasn't included Rams stadium at all in their bid book on their website.
  20. Am I the only one who has picked up on the wing resembling a flame?
  21. Basing this off their social media and what not, but my guess is that their logo is going to involve the sun. Every post on their Twitter and Instagram is of past Olympic cities with #FollowTheSun.
  22. Anyone know if Bach is planning to attend the super bowl like last year? Considering he's going to the Silicon Valley today
