  1. São Paulo is the largest city in Brazil, the largest city in the Americas and the 4th largest city in the world, with almost 13 million inhabitants. During its history, São Paulo hosted major events, whether sports or not, or competed for some event. Of these events, what is missing to close this list, are the Olympic Games. At the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, São Paulo was one of the soccer sub-venues, receiving 10 matches, but not something grandiose. São Paulo has hosted the 1963 Pan American Games, the 2002 South American Games, the 2014 Parapan American Youth Games, as well as the games of the 1950 World Cup, the 2014 World Cup and the 2019 America Cup. And every year, it receives the World-wide one of Formula 1. The city applied to host the 2012 Summer Olympics, losing to Rio de Janeiro, which lost to London and Expo 2020, losing to Dubai. The city of São Paulo is a major economic, industrial and tourism hub in Brazil, receiving 11.7 million tourists in 2010 according to the Municipal Tourism Department. With the Olympics, that number would double or even triple. In the lodging, the city counts on about 50,000 rooms of hotels. In addition, there are 280 movie theaters, 180 theaters, 110 museums, 90 cultural centers, 55 shopping centers, more than 12,000 restaurants, ranging from local cuisine to thai cuisine. São Paulo has numerous portal cards, such as parks, museums, avenues, among others. Ibirapuera Park is the largest park in the city, and is a meeting point for people of all ages who enjoy their lawns, museums and hiking trails. Paulista Avenue is Brazil's most famous avenue, bringing together companies, museums, shopping malls, subway stations, and is the meeting point of many people, especially young people. The São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP) is located on Avenida Paulista, with paintings by artists such as Renoir and Van Gogh, as well as sculptures and other objects from Ancient Greece. The Altino Arantes Building is one of the highest in the city, known as "Empire States Paulista", with exhibition halls, skating rink, cafeteria and an observatory. The 25 de Março Street is the main street of popular commerce, with small shops that sell everything a little. The Municipal Market is considered to be the home of the best ingredients, with bars and stalls selling mostly fruits, ranging from a simple apple to the exotic pitaya. A large mesh of transport facilitates the movement. They pass through the city, 11 state and federal highways. More than 200 bus lines connect all areas of the city. With 6 subway lines in operation, 3 more in construction, 7 suburban train lines linking São Paulo to neighboring cities, makes the city the largest and best public transportation network in Brazil, and one of the best and largest in the world. The city has 3 airports (São Paulo-Guarulhos, São Paulo-Congonhas and Campo de Marte), making São Paulo connect with the rest of the world. Three more road terminals complete this system. The city has large sports centers such as stadiums, gymnasiums and other places that can be adapted, such as convention centers. Some do not even need to be renovated because they are new facilities, such as the Corinthians Arena, the Palmeiras Arena and the Paralympic Center. These are just a few details, a summary of all the potential that São Paulo has to receive the Olympic Games, and who knows in 2032. Brazilian authorities have not launched an interest in hosting the event so far, but who knows soon. It's not hard to dream. Is that you? What do you think of this future candidacy? Do you think São Paulo has the potential to do so? Can São Paulo become a candidate for 2032?

  12. I read a post regarding the Brazil World Cup, 2014. The post was about 10 players above the age of 30 who could make great impact in winning the trophy. So it made me think, who all over would be the most important players in this World Cup. I can't see Ronaldo/Messi going all the way. It is just my opinion. But although I think Van Persie and his team seem to be promising this time around. Also, Neymar too has a big chance. The link to the article that kept me thinking - http://www.trcfootball.com/football-blogs?id=38
