    Sadly this isn't something new. There has been a slump for some time now. Tokyo and Beijing still had respectable numbers, but not on the level of previous Games.
     
    After Tokyo was the first downtrend, which was always expected, after such a big event and people needing some time off and to take a breather. Usually things rebounded in 2 months for the start of the winter season, but even this last winter season, excluding the Olympics, felt empty for the most part. And then the war came and activity just took a nosedive..
     
    I can add myself to the list of people, that are more busy than before and want to do/watch different things, but i still try to follow and watch the sports as much, as possible. But to be honest, when i come here and see, that there isn't much discussion going on about the different events, i'm not too eager to leave a comment as well and just browse through.. Hope things change and can go back to normal.

    Good to see, that the IOC still have principles and don't discriminate the Winter Olympics. Instead of only shitting on the Summer Olympics they are being equally fair and are shitting on the Winter ones too. They haven't reached full equilibrium, but 2030 is close.

    I don't watch beach volleyball outside the Olympics, but this is being shown on TV here, so i caught a couple of matches. And yeah, the empty stands is what stood out. And it's not like they are half empty or 2/3rds, stands are completely empty. And it's Rome. I know beach volleyball is not that prominent, but come on...

    If you are a movie fan you are probably knowing what is happening right now and that we are seeing history unfolding before our eyes. Top Gun Maverick is doing a madman boxoffice run, that is going to be talked about decades from now.  Things like this just doesn't happen to anything that's not Star Wars or MCU in the US. It just had a 90 million second US weekend with a new all time record of just 29% decline from the the premier weekend (for blockbuster 100+ million openings). Current projections have it making the top 15 US all time with a conservative numbers at 520-550, with some insiders having it going to 600 with the amazing holds it currently shows. And it's not only the US, there were insane holds in almost every other country for the second weekend, i even saw single digit drops in some major markets. Absolute bonkers positive word-of-mouth is carrying this film.

    What else could be said, beside what i have been humming for years and some people have just started realizing. Tom Cruise is and has been the Biggest Movie star in the world and probably the last true one we are going to see. This persons love, passion and dedication to the craft of cinema and the desire to bring the ultimate experience to the viewers is almost unparalleled to any other actor out there (at least for those younger than him).
     
     
    PS. Looks like i am extra excited about this situation, sorry about that.

    This time it wasn't that close like last year, bit Pizzolato is becoming like a black cat for Karlos. Weightlifting isn't a sport where you could form a duel, a rivalry between two athletes that much, as there is no face-off, but these two are the best thing to try it. 
     
    That Pizzolato lift at 217 was high class, he is very impressive. Bad news for him is that Karlos is only 17-18 and will accumulate more strength and experience in the coming years. Hope losing twice to him will serve as motivation.

    Jo-Willie Tsonga played his final match and had a very emotional ceremony afterwards. The French really did a good job in making this a proper send-off to one of their best in the new century. He has never been one, that i was fond of in his best years, but i have to admit the tribute video they showed got me a bit choked up. Almost all of that second tier of players that supplemented the Big 3 (or 4, if you'd like) for close to a decade are now retired. Nalbandian, Davydenko, Soderling in the beginning and then Tsonga, Berdych, Ferrer, Del Potro and Wawrinka in the second wave. Only one left is Stan the Man, but for how long.

    Thanks to Angel Esteban and levartoz we have that real Olympic ranking including the results of the european and americain continental of may 2022 
     https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18vJAIixTBo9HqcjkSnKgAbE8y3lkwBV_j71Cf8kXtxs/edit#gid=1551245009
    In the link above you can see the top 50 of each weight with the breakdown of points per season of that real ranking.
    The Olympic ranking currently published by the international federation covers the results of the last 4 years, deducting 25% each year. The points of the last 12 months count 100%, the other 12 previous months (from 13 to 24) count 75% and so on.
    This Olympic ranking published by the international federation is the one that is certain at all times to qualify for the G6 Grand Prix (where only the top 32 in the Olympic ranking participate in each weight with a maximum of 2 per country).
     
    The real Olympic ranking would include: 25% of the points obtained in 2020 and 2021 up to and including the Olympic Games + 50% of the points obtained in 2021 from the Olympic Games + 75% of the points obtained in 2022 (except for the World Cup which will count 50%) + 100% of the 2023 points

    I think there is still a ban for unvaccinated people to enter the country. So they probably shouldn't name it as Open.

    Moroni kicked out Lopez in qualifying. With that, Lopez' insane streak ended, this will be the first time since the 2002 (!) Australian Open that we'll have a Grand Slam main draw without Lopez in it. Yep, more than 20 years ago. Moroni had just turned 4 when there last was a Grand Slam without Lopez in the main draw.
     
    Andreas Seppi lost as well in the qualifying, the first time since the 2005 French Open he'll miss a main draw at a Grand Slam. The longest and third-longest streaks in Open Era history have now ended.

    Today was the final of the Bulgarian Cup and a very symbolic final, which will stay for the books. After 17 years, we had the Eternal derby Levski - CSKA in a deciding match for a trophy. And even more special and long awaited was the victory for Levski Sofia, which won a trophy for the first time, since 2009 !! 13 long and painful years filled with lost Championships in the last matchday, 3 lost Cup finals (2 with penalties, 1 with goals in the last minutes). There has never been another period in the clubs 107 year history without a trophy like this one. 13 years... a whole generation grew up without seeing Levski win anything. Heck i was still in high school in 2009...
     
    And this came after maybe the 3 toughest years in the clubs history, when it lost it's owner and was on the verge on bankruptcy. But the fans, the normal people didn't let it happen and did something unheard of for our country (i would say even region). They gathered and continue to give millions and millions to pay the debts, to pay the staff and players (the ones who stayed, the ones who agreed to lower their salaries), to not let the club die. And they got the perfect ignition to rise the team with the return of legendary coach-director duo of Stanimir Stoilov and Nasko Sirakov. The duo, who made the last Levski dream team from 2005-2009, which reached the UEFA Cup 1/4 and played in the Champions League group stage. I couldn't dare dream, that we could see phase 2 of those moments. I am just going to salvage today for now. Левски е вечен!
     
    EDIT: My 5000 comment, just the perfect timing and moment.

    New Champions League format officially a go from 2024.
     
    https://theathletic.com/news/champions-league-format/UQdwWgNKMXhb/
     
    Group stage expands from 32 to 36 teams, which will play 8 matches (4 home, 4 away) with random teams. Standings will be in one giant league format with the top 8 qualifying directly to the 1/8, while the next 16 will play in the 1/16 stage. 
     
    The format could be passable, will see how it goes, what i don't like is that from the 4 additional spots, only 1 is handed to a non-top 5 country.. But that was to be expected, as UEFA wants the status quo to remain and big clubs (leagues) to play only against each other.
