GDL 2011 Closing Ceremony Livechat

Recommended Posts

I dunno if you noticed but i think Guadalajara 2011 started a trend for the closing ceremonies. The PASO flag was never handed over on a pole but only the flag alone(at least for the last 30 years). Also, PASO flag changed again (it seems their flag changes all the time at every Pan Ams :lol: ) so the ODEPA PASO words are just above the logo and arround it.

Handover of the PASO flag at Indianapolis 1987 opening.

PS: Correction. The ODEPA PASO words are now below the logo, not above.

Guadalajara may have been dubbed the best but ours were THE largest-almost-olympic-level Pan American Games which model Toronto's gonna follow! Deal with it Raña! HAHAHA! :D

Guadalajara was a passionate and colorful host and these games were amazing to watch. Jalisco truly embraced the spirit of the games like no others. Kudos, cabrones!

Now 'three little birds'

I don't remember Rio 2007 (due to the lack of coverage :( ) but that is the vibe I get as well.

That's EXACTLY what I felt when the 2007 games ended and I missed so much the atmosphere and excitement we had back in those days during the past 2 weeks.

Diego Torres is performing. I wonder if he will sing Creo en America? (which was the theme song of this year Copa America)

Yeah but that was almost half a century ago :P but they kinda deserve it because of their contribution in athletics.

Ricky Martin takes the stage, and it seems he will close the show

They ended it so abruptly. :blink:

Nice games, dare I say it the Vancouver level almost. Certainly has helped Guadalajara show it can stage the Olympics. See you in 2017 for the WAC.

You can watch the whole closing ceremony on the CBC website. I thought the handover was just slightly above average, nothing of real interest.

Above average is great for $300,000
