  1. I love the opening ceremony from Albertville 1992. It's so unique, so different from what was done before (and after). It was the first opening ceremony I watched, I was 5, and I still remember how amazed I was. 

    But I know for sure the opening for the 2024 games will be very different. I just hope it won't be too generic or cliché like what they gave us for the opening of the 2016 euro cup. 

  2. 13 minutes ago, FYI said:

    I still laugh at Wasserman indirectly referring to Paris 2024 as giving "ultimatums". Yet at the same time giving "ultimatums" of his own. Not realizing (or more like conveniently ignoring) that the same circumstances that "could" prevent L.A. from bidding again, can also apply to Paris 2024. But of course it's just easier for him to paint Paris 2024 in that "negative light" a certain someone was touting about before.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. So Paris 2024 is accused of giving ultimatums when they say they can only bid for 2024, but then when LA 2024 say they won't be bidding again that's not an ultimatum?

  3. Ok. So just because Gamesbids isn't talking about it, the Paris 2024 bid report was really really good. There you go.

    No surprises here, but since there was a whole article about it from Gamesbids, I thought I should balance it up a bit.

    My sources are from a French website, so I thought it wouldn't interest you. But just in case, here you go:

  4. They're all talking about their fond memories of the 1984 Games, because LA's mayor was there and apparently two people from the Evaluation Commission participated in those Games. I bet it's not going to be the same when they visit Paris, and you all know why.

    That's why LA can wait a little bit longer. Paris has waited long enough.

  5. Seriously? That sun scandal again? WTF? I just read in the L.A topic that Ruff guy mentioning it, AGAIN!

    So, let me make things clear here:

    A. The sun doesn't belong to any country or any city. It is our star. Earth's star. So yes, there is sun in L.A, but yes, there is the exact same sun in Paris. And in every fucking country on this planet.

    B. Renders: Yes, wouldn't it be great to have renders of a cloudy and rainy Paris? The problem is...it gets freaking sunny and warm in Paris during the summer. So, just deal with it.

    I'm not adressing anyone in particular, but you really need to cut the crap with that follow the sun / day of the sun bullshit.

  6. I seriously doubt that Le Pen will win the election. She might make it through the second round, like her dad did in 2002, but just like in 2002, the people of France will realize that there's 50% chance that an extremist might be president, and will make sure that this won't happen. I will, anyway. And even she is indeed elected president of France, she is NOTHING like Trump.

    So you might be hoping that she wins so that LA gets a better chance a getting the games (and that is a terrible thing to wish), but I don't think it will happen. France is not the US.

    dear JO2024,

    I was just looking at Rols last post and I realized I used the same font as you, a total over-sign on my part......I saw your star when it was posted and thought it was cool looking but when I made mine I searched a lot of fonts till I found one I liked and I THOUGHT I found the perfect one....but you found it first!:lol: So sorry....of course I will withdraw mine and try to re-tool it. good luck.

    No worries Paul. It's fine, you can use it I really don't mind. It's a nice matching font for Havana, so that makes sense that you went for that one! ;)

    And Sirl Rols, I will resubmit my Havana and Kathmandu logos very soon, before the deadline. And I do hope to see your submission in the competition! ^_^
