So many threads in Gamesbid, I thought the other "2022 Ceremony" thread was the main one.

Have you ever been on SkyScraperCity? Talk about so many threads there, that Gamesbids pales in comparison.

BTW, your last two posts have nothing to do with this thread (we don't wanna rattle any cages, ya know :D). This thread will be much more relevant come next Sunday morning anyway (U.S. time), if you wanna come back then. I think your participation at that time would be quite interesting, to say the least lol.

Not sure if it has been discussed here. The opening ceremony showcased the names of the previous Winter Olympics hosts. In which the 1960 host "Squaw Valley" was renamed "Lake Tahoe", following the recent call to remove racist terms in US placenames.

But on the IOC website the host of the 1960 Winter Olympics is still "Squaw Valley".
