    Federer91 got a reaction from Olympian1010 in Summer Olympic Games 2024 Competition Schedule   
    I like more sports before the Opening Ceremony, because i can watch them, before the clusterfuck starts.
     
    I don't like though, that we now have 3 days of swimming and athletics colliding... It was usually only 1 day, where swimming was only an hour with the last few finals. They are even at the same time in both sessions..
     
    Weightlifting in the last 5 days is interesting. Usually the schedule is more free by that time, so it could be for the better, though taekwondo is also bunched then. Wrestling with 2 hour morning sessions and then 4 hour final sessions is a choice. I would have preferred the finals to start 2 hours earlier and not collided with everything in the 20-23 hour period. 
     
    Team Sports very heavy in the beginning, which is expected with group stages, but i think Tokyo had a more balanced schedule. Will see what happens, the more we get closer to the Games.

    Nooooooooo  Oh man, this is so sad.. Myself, like many others, have scratched their heads on why Bruce was doing all those straight to dvd/video/streaming/Target action films given his pedigree, but in retrospective, it was probably the right decision for him. Nevertheless an ICON of film in the last 40 years.

    Rumours about Bruce Willis' health have been confirmed. He was diagnosed with aphasia and will stop acting. This probably explains his questionable acting choices for the last few years that would make Steven Seagal B-level crap look like Ben Hur.
     
    It's a shame, Willis is on my Mount Rushmore of US actors for over 30 years

    Can't believe people think this is real. It is desperately scripted for attention and ratings as Hollywood gets. Chris Rock's face wasn't even red after the "slap". He did a classic wrestling move to sell the punch before Smith even "reached" him. And if it was real, Smith would have shouted in his face right there, not walk back to his seat, wait for Rock to say his line and then yell. It is more funny in hindsight, after his crying speech afterwards "I'm all for the love, i'm all for the love".
     
    Cumberbatch robbed again. Though he was in a subpar film, his performance was top notch and out if this bunch should have won easily. Guess Smith and his poison wife can feast now, as their crusade, started 5-6 years ago is finally reached and mediocre actor Will got what he wanted. 
     
    The few bright things, very, very happy for the CODA wins, The Godfather, Bond, Pulp Fiction tributes/reunions, Billie Eilish No Time To Die win, Kevin Costner, Anthony Hopkins presenting aaaand Dune (i guess), though tech categories were so empty this year. 
     
    The bar for hosts has been lowered so much, that even their stupid jokes and politics were cringer than usual. Long gone are the elegant and cinematic ceremonies of Steve Martin, Billy Crystal, or even Hugh Jackman, when he hosted.

    Finally Spain for WOG, i've been saying it for some time now  Though SOG would be equally as good, i wonder who is the dumb IOC's favourite? They are not even hiding it at this point and directly say "don't even bother applying"

    Thank you, happy to join our lovely neighbours 
     
    Yes, but also it seems to be a habit for Maria. She was 0-5 in ITF finals until she finally won one. Then she was 0-7 in Grand Slam third round matches until she finally won one. Then she had a very poor record in semifinals but now she won two of her last three. So hopefully she can slowly start to break all of these trends as she has done before 
     
    She was 0-4 in WTA 1000 semifinals, but Wuhan 2017 and Rome 2019 she came from the qualifying, it was a big surprise just to make the semifinals, no one expected her to win those. Then Miami 2021 she was an underdog and lost 7-6 in the third, and then Doha 2022 lost to Swiatek. So this match against Badosa was definitely her best chance to finally make a big final (of course last year she also lost in the semifinals of two majors and also WTA Finals).
     
    As for Stefanos, he did win the ATP Finals and a Masters 1000 title already, though I agree he could do better in the later stages of tournaments. He has made 5 GS semifinals but only one final for example, although he always lost to good players (Medvedev 2x, Nadal, Djokovic) so at least he isn't wasting easy draws.

    Welcome to the club   I hope Sakkari can get the win (though i like Swiatek as well). For some reason, she and Tsitsipas are always having problems and lose in the important matches in the SF / Finals. They are playing very good up until the final stages, but then i don't know, if they get in their heads and just lose the plot. Time for Sakkari to make the next step and win a big title.

    They are! MotoGP is very big here, perhaps bigger than F1.
     
    Yamaha team almost always made their players speak some Indonesian for the ads (I believe Rossi can speak Indonesian very well because of years of shooting ads lol). People on the streets often sell stickers of the riders' numbers for their own motorbikes or helmets (there is one seller just on the street across my house).
     
    Basically Indonesian people just love motorbikes, to the point that 10 year olds riding motorbike is not a rare sight

    Pretty sure Balkans doesn't include us, as Arena Sport doesn't operate here, so you can try that. But i will have to check YT tomorrow to be sure.

    Yes, i think it would be good to postpone the contest to the summer, when hopefully things are returned to normal. Don't think many people are having the contest on their mind right now.

    Two stage wins and a second overall UAE Tour victory for Tadej Pogacar and business is back to normal in the new season.  We know, that he has been scary good individually, but this year he is going to have a team to back him up as well. Almeida, Bennett, Soler coming in, along with Majka, Bjerg, Hirschi and Jumbo-Visma / Sky are starting to worry about their super-team statuses.  
     
    Now on to Omloop and the non-official start of the season!

    In light of an ongoing war...
     
    I have waited a few days to think about if I want to continue hosting this TISC now that there's a war in one of our neighboring countries. I have decided that if Eurovision can move on and have a show, I can do the same thing if our users still want to have a contest. The choice is in your hands now, if the majority of users want either cancellation or postponement, I won't be against it. And even if the majority of users want this event to happen, individual jury members are free to withdraw as always. The registration and selection deadline is still more than two weeks away so you got time to think about it.
