Exactly! And impress they will!

About the best Olympic ceremony. My opinion is that Athens had one of the best Olympic ceremonies followed by Barcelona. Sydney did a great job as well. This is all subjective people! You choose what you like. What is wrong with that?

Lastly, let me remind everyone again that Sydney and even Barcelona, they did not sell out every single event! So cut us some slack will ya?

LOL. The sheep herders in Toowoomba and the street sweepers in Perth want the business owners in Melbourne to leave because they aren't Australian enough. They should leave-and take their money with them. They're welcome in America!

I would like to see San Diego host the Olympics. It is a very beutiful city. I think San Fran/Oakland is first in line for US cities though.

Too much blue and colorations made a fantastic job in a fantastic stadium! The most sophisticated and elegant ceremony ever!

The Opening Ceremony of Athens won an EMMY AWARD before some weeks, for the BEST LIGHTING EFFECTS.

I really loved Athens 2004, with Tiesto djing at the Parade of Athletes. That was cool.

The laser light show was AWESOME, especially the DNA part! Thats going to be a tough act for Beijing to follow, as attested to by Chinese delegates at the closing ceremony.

I am not a Sheep herder, nor am I from Toowomba, nor am I street sweeper, nor have I been to Perth. Though its funny that the uneducated man who claims to be Greek assumes the role of denigrating others so he can build up his self esteem. Fortunately, your act of denigration fails and you again, look like an utter retard just like your "friend" .::G!oRgOs::. I am sure that if they leave and take their money to America, yet bag out America as hard as they possibly can, most Americans would not want them to be in America either. Ha! Got you there again! How the ignorant have fallen.

You really are a very uneducated man with very DUMB posts. It was not SOLEY the Greeks, nor the Italians, nor the Anglo's, nor the Asians, who made Australia what it is today. Australia is what it is nowadays because EVERY SINGLE ethnic group contributed to its current formation.

KEY WORD: DUMB!

Hoist on your own Petard, Valeroso. Your own words condemn you in front of the entire forum for the ignorant individual and bigot that you are! Nothing more need be said.

I don't need to defend myself against ignorance claims. I do think however that both you and him are the epitome of ignorance, hence your post is entirely meaningless to me. (And I think infact, all your posts are entirely meaningless to everyone else also). Oh, and I don't deny those words! Infact, I still support them! So "hoist of" my "own petard"? I don't think so!

What would be the point, anyway? You can't defend the indefensible.

As I said, hoist on your own petard.
