How d'you get in there? Airlift?! Sucked up from the underside like boarding a UFO?!

See the "ST. Louis 2016" thread in the New York folder.

Maybe even watch Team GB win Gold in 2012 lol  :P

Now that would be something worth going to watch!

BTW Magic, your name is kind of prophetic. A bid of Magic was the strong theme which was weaved through London's final presentation. Did you have some kind of clue about this?!!

I think I was listening to Queen's "It's a kind of magic" when registering membership to GamesBids, and I thought London's bid is a 'bid of magic' ;)

Actually at the end of one of the video bits during the presentation it said 'London - Where magic happens' or something along those lines.  Can't argue with that.  :)

Well it worked for London alright!

I can see it now, Bertrand Delanoe says "Paris, a bid of magic in 2016" as they lose again under his command. oops sorry, did I say that?

Wow!  It is certainly a great looking stadium.  I have one question about the new Wembley.  Will it host just the finals of the football competition in 2012, or will it host other matches thoughout the tournament as well?  I know that the football competition will be spred out, all through the UK, but will Wembley be used for other later matches (the semis, etc.) as well?  It seems like such a great venue; it would be a shame to only host one match.

According to the bid book it will be used on days 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 16.

So that would make it both mens and womens semi-finals, and both the finals.

I just thought it was going to be the Final itself.

Thanks everyone!  I'm glad the stadium is going to see more matches; it seems to do the venue better justice than just the finals of each event!

Continguency plan if Wembley Stadium isn't ready come May next year, but by the looks of this pic, it doesn't look like it's got too far to go..

What a behemoth, but a stunning looking one at that.  :)

Magic, did you get that from wembleystadium.com?

If so, how did you manage it?

Thanks

:)

No, in these day and times, there seems to be an unhealthy interest in a large gathering place that's not yet built but will hold a large number of people.

For example, at a synagogue in SF, I just learned that they are ID'ing people and making them wear nametags as they attend services.  

So how does anyone know that one of you is not part of a sleeper cell?  Hmmmm?  :suspect:

Isn't that going just a tad too far?

For the synagogue services, yes, I thought so.  But hey, prudence is the better part of valor.

One can never be too sure these days, ya know.   :suspect:

Baron - I and the majority of other's posting on this and other forums are just the average 9-5 middle class guy, who takes an interest in sport and architectural creativity.

Nothing more, nothing less.... sorry to disappoint your overactive imagination and paranoid sense of awareness but there you go.

I know I got it from another forum, but I forgot which one it was now.  It was about sporting arena's in Europe and USA etc...  I'll try and go back in my history and let you know ;)

True. I think the FA would be in deeper sh*t had they not had Cardiff on stand-by and the FA cup final was cancelled
