I told myself I wouldn't give a sh!t who won. But I realised pretty quickly after I read the announcement that while I would have accepted Almaty, I was totally disgusted by the Beijing choice. I hone

Yeah it's not a surprise. Just very sad that the IOC is rewarding a nation that lied about their 2008 legacies, poison the environment, abuse and persecute innocent people, have venues from 2008 wasti

Dear god, that "question" Cinquanta asked the Lausane bid... what a pompous a-hole.

I thought the exact same thing. The only rationale I can possibly come up with for a question like that is that Cinquanta thinks small countries are incapable of hosting successful events. The question was very loaded and arrogant, in my opinion.

Is it back on? I'm on the IOC site and it just says: LIVE...but no transmission.

They've always been very honest about those kind of things


The point they're making that choosing Kazakhstan will show other less developed countries that they are able to run against much more developed countries and win may bode over well with the IOC...


Also they are obviously jumping all over Beijing which is hilarious

When he said world power as well. This is a lot more fun that I thought it was going to be.

I wonder if Beijing will be the same or if they will be artificially kind...

Hey guys: do you think Almaty has snow? I'm not sure about that.
