*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Bluster

Once in the car, there was the challenge of making conversation for many, many miles. "It is intimate; it's their little stage, their little apartment," he explains. "And they set the rules, but you have to listen to know what those rules are. And it's always about talking -- nobody picks up a hitchhiker to sit in silence."

My partner and I tried to carry out this intervention three years before. The result was unsatisfying and we promised ourselves to try again. The year after, my friend left us brutally. I hope he will like the result.

Spectacular in appearance, sport megaevents are also fundamentally political and
economic in purpose. The megaevent world of superlatives raises major expectations with
regard to the legacies they leave to host cities and nations. These range from political and
cultural agendas—such as strengthening and reinventing national identities and reasserting
political aspirations—to locally bounded infrastructure and gentrification projects and
increased employment and tourism revenues. In line with broader neoliberal dynamics of
city marketing and ‘brandscaping’, there are extensive studies arguing that sport megaevents
enable host cities and nations to project themselves as festival locations, aiming to plug into
diverse circuits of global capital.
