  1. Well, what's everyone's thoughts overall? I'd say a good games, done on an appropriate scale.
  2. Will the Missile fire or fizzle? Will the Poms put us in our place? Well, we had to have the Team Oz thread! I was gonna post the launch of the team uniforms in the Glasgow news thread, but figured it was about time, and a good excuse, to get this one going. Go the Green and Gold! The launch took place in Glasgow Street, Collingwood, Melbourne. Looks like they have high expectations of the Scottish summer:
  3. We have our Eruedan and LA84 Medals for the Olympics. And the Sepp Blatter Trophy for the World Cup. It's about time the third most followed event* on GamesBids had its own set of forum awards. I propose the following inaugural awards for the Commonwealth Games: The Order of the Gold Corgi (First, Second and Third Class) Established in Honour of the Games' Chief Patron, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Long May She Reign, the Order of the Gold Corgi will be bestowed on the most memorable or favourite moment of the games, in Glasgow or on GamesBids. Nominate your favourite moment of the games, be it a memorable competition event or inspiring competitor, a striking venue or colourful spectator, a witty post or a clever observation. and... The Kool-Aid Cup In tribute of one who left his mark so indelibly on GamesBids' Commonwealth Games Forums, and fittingly to be first bestowed during the festivities in Glasgow, the Kool-Aid Cup is for the biggest face-palm moment of the Games on the field or in the threads. Nominate your favourite blunders, failures, villains and fools. To get this one started, I nominate for the Kool-Aid Cup: * The Scottish Team Ceremonies outfit. and, in anticipation of the inevitable (and you can nominate me for this nomination if it doesn't happen), Tony E for "I'm going for England" and "England was robbed". It would have been nice to have the Kool-Aids for Delhi. In retrospect, I nominate "Westerners have different standards of hygiene," by the deputy of the Delhi 2010 organising committee, Lalit Bhanot, for the 2010 Cup. Post any nominations you want to make during the games, and we'll have our second favourite activity after arguing, a poll, at the end. Oh, and I guess I better nominate Krow. For whatever. * GamesBids event interest by ranking: 1. Olympic Games events and bidding; 2. World Cup events and bidding; 3. Commonwealth Games events and bidding; 4. Eurovision; 5. Academy Awards; 6. Miss Universe; 7. Other stuff. Source: Rollup Polling
  4. Yes there is another major sporting event on at the moment...But my hasn't time crept up on everyone. One month to go and Glasgow will host it's biggest sports event so far...Is the city all set as the baton makes it's way around Scotland? I'm sure it is... Already seeing heavy advertising on the TV and many focus documentaries on CWGs as well as Scotland in general. An interesting history of Glasgow was on TV the other night and it now leaves me with a totally different outlook of the city to whom which was set in my mind since visiting way back in 1990. There is still the struggling Glasgow we think we know, but now there is a more positive vibe as this city has the potential to return to it's once powerful status as the 'second' city of the UK. I'm the first to admit going 'bleugh' when it was chosen over that other contender, and it felt like a hospital pass as the city that would've hosted, withdrew leaving everyone hanging - thanks Halifax...Your loss. During this time the CWGs were being read their death rights and more so after 2010. Looking now, in hindsight, what a relief... So. What is left to be done?...since I last asked 20 days ago?...all that's missing now are the teams?
  5. We are fast closing in on what could be a very important event in the Commonwealth Games history...Glasgow 2014. There seems to be so much riding on the XX edition, especially after the disappointment of 2010. So what, apart from the teams arriving, needs to be done now? Are the buildings completed, transportation sorted out, the sea of volunteers ready, sports facilities signed off? Are we ready?
