BC Place - not so shabby afterall?

Recommended Posts

Especially if they are going to tair the stadium down after the games.  Spending all that money on new seats would seem redundant.

Speaking about the Coliseum, the new seats should all be installed by today.

Here's an idea that will solve your worries....a double ended cauldron.  Think of it like one of those giant Swiss horns.  It begins inside the stadium and curves up and out to the outside.  So when the final person lights it, they light the internal flame and then the flame climbs up the tube to the outdoor portion.  There you have it.  One cauldron, two flames, visible from inside and outside.   :D

Who are you kidding? BC Place is a dump, especially when it will be compared to all the sparkling brand new venues in 2010. The white roof inside is discoloured and stained, the whole place is dark and dreary and does not even feel full when it is full. I was at the Grey Cup and remarked that most likely the next time it would be full would be for 2010. It would cost them $3.5 million alone to fix the sound in that place so people could hear the opening and closing ceremonies. Black eyed peas werent bad, just no one could hear it because of the awful sound they have in there. You couldn not even understand the P.A. announcements. The limited pyrotechnics that they did have for the Grey Cup were enough to create a haze beneath the roof, and the pyrotechnices associated with a bigger even would literally smoke the place out. Serious changes and upgrades need to be made, otherwise it could look even more dated in 2010, leaving us with the most boring ceremonies ever.

i would so agree with you!

IF THEY WANT THE WORLD TO VANCOUVER AT LEAST MAKE SOME MAJOR CHANGES TO THE BC STADIUM....

Mayhaps they will have everybody who arrived for the opening ceremony wait outside until they make the dome explode just like the old Milton Bradley game Ka-Boom! And even award a medal for that.  :wwww:

And then the indoor/outdoor cauldron thing would be a moot subject!  :cool:

and then, the stadium would deflate.

Very strong chance it might -- with hot/cold air dynamics at work.

It's got more to do with the fact that BC Place stays inflated because it is completely airtight. Anyone entering the stadium has to go through an "airlock".

It's equal parts cool and dumb, IMO.

Perhaps ceremony-goers will be drugged through the airlock and the games theme will be a play on the bid theme then, "The Sea to Skied Up Games"  :wwww:

So, if everyone inside inhaled and exhaled in perfect unison, you would see the 'dome' heaving as well?   :shocked:

Athens based their ceremony off the human heart beat, Vancouver can base theirs off the human lungs.  Watch out for that smoke.  :devil:
