  1. Damn, that is one ugly Olympic Stadium, nothing like the initial proposals, the last trully iconic Olympic Stadium was the Birds nest in Beijing in 2008.
  2. If there's a clear example of what an Expo can do to a city it is Lisbon, the eastern part of the city was an industrial wasteland, now it is one of the more fashionable and expensive parts of Lisbon.
  3. Spain bid for Euro 2004 but lost heavily, the end result was something like 9 votes to Portugal, 1 to Austria-Hungary 0 to Spain
  4. The Portuguese song is chosen, the final was held in my hometown, the birthplace of our country

  6. The protests in Portugal were justified, they even should have been greater in order to cause the fall of this right wing government, but in Brasil's case for the outside looker these protests are unexpected.
  7. All is not well in Brasil, what would happen if these protests happen again during the world cup or Olympics?
  8. Foi uma piada, tu é levas tudo muito a sério, muito pouco brasileiro da tua parte.
  9. Seu Jorge eas't bad, Pelé was really bad, if the peole in charge wanted to fillow this path they should had brought more singers like gabriel o pensador and a more coordinated dance number. Sometimes it feels these brazillian events are hostage to Pelé, he had too much power and influence in brazil. Portuguese don't mind thr brazillian presence, sometimes it's nice to go to a rodízio, portuguse do mind ehen some brazillians cime here and start making trouble and commiting crimes.
  10. Just because you don't know them doesn't mean they aren't famous, 9 out of 10 portuguese don't know carmen miranda
  11. Amália was the biggest fado singer in the 20th century, she packed concert halls across the world, Mariza is her successor, recently she was on Letterman, Moonspell are a well known heavy metal band with a big legion of fans mainly in europe, they played at rock in rio several times, daniela ruah is an actress from the hit american tv series NCIS Los Angeles, 2nd most viewed series in the US.
  12. Actually no, Mariza, Amália, Madredeus, Moonspell, Mourinho, daniela Ruah, Etc are more famous than her. She is from 30km from here, but I think she's buried in Brasil.
  13. Average handover cerimony, usually the next OC tries to depart from the games that it follows, that wasn't the case, it felt like a continuation from the opening and closing cerimony. In 08 the british set an entirelly different tone from the chinese. The brazillian don't like their portuguese heritage, but they had to bring the calçada portuguesa to the handover cerimony, ironic.
  14. Best games ever, great atmosphere, great city, Rio has a lot of work ahead in order to stage games as good as these.
