    Future Olympic Hosts

    Or just hosting once. I swear they'll never get their s**t together to actually seriously put in a bid for the event. So many missed opportunities it's like why even bother anymore?
  2. I wonder if people realize that many of those that withered away are already signed on to continue their role? No way in hell they would make them all prequel films, so they'll return. For part 2 I'm more concerned about those that remained, since those are the ones we more than likely won't be seeing again.
  3. Maybe all these stupid bitches don't realize there is a part 2? I probably won't be seeing it until Monday.

    IMO it was the choice that made sense. They have natural snow. When the IOC officials visited the city months before voting, they could look outside their hotel room and see the snowcapped mountains, and even see the ski jumping venue. They had a great plan which would have had every event taking place within a much smaller radius than Beijing would have. I put safer in quotes because it's not the typical safer choice you would expect. I guess by safer I really mean familiar. They wanted to be in a market they had experience in. Financial risk on either bid was not an issue given the vast amount of wealth of each nation, but still they had experience dealing with Beijing on an Olympic games level, not Almaty.
  6. Manifest destiny? Did that awful term really have to be resurrected and used here?

    Didn't matter how well China impressed the IOC to host 2022. For Beijing to go against Almaty, a relative unknown in winter sports, and only win the race by about 4 votes, shows that it was a reluctant choice. Had we all not witnessed the nightmare that was Sochi and the massive headache the IOC and the world witnessed in seeing Rio prepare for the games, they for sure would have happily taken the risk of going to Almaty over Beijing. The IOC had no choice but to choose the "safer" choice. If they weren't in such dire need to repair the image of the Olympics, they would have never done a double summer olympics award last year.
  8. Well good, it's as it should be. American women have been dominating in the Olympics for awhile now. They not only won us more medals this olympics, they also won us more gold medals than men. They're clearly the more reliable athletes.
  9. Can't believe Johnny Weir is delivering commentary for the tape-delay version of the closing ceremony. Please tell me he didn't do it for the live streaming version.
  10. Lol what? I'm trying to figure out what language this boy is singing in.
  11. Didn't get to watch it live as it happened this morning so will be watching it tonight. How long was the athletes' entrance to the stadium? Want to make sure I have time to cook dinner.
  12. First impression was there were a ton of moments that were recycled from past ceremonies, like thr drum segment and olympics real from Beijing, dancing volunteers from Vancouver, Tokyo handover ceremony from Rio, etc. Disappointed more wasn't done to showcase Korean history. Yes I knoe they want to look forward and all that jazz, but some of the best OCs of all time (Athens, Sydney and Beijing) didn't seem to hurt from that focus. I'll have to watch it again either on primetime or HULU since I was watching from my phone this whole time.
  13. Probably the best part of the entire OC. 2nd best is the Tonga athlete once again walking in the stadium shirtless!
  14. Agree. Not worth getting less than 3hrs of sleep to see it live and probably not worth opening a free hulu trial to see the remainder of it after the NBC only offering the 1st 30mins for free.
  15. Oh man I haven't heard that song they're playing the ceremony off with in ages. Anyone remember the name to it?
